Patron's letter


It is a great privilege to be Patron of the Derby Arts Festival.  Each year I marvel at the talent, skill and commitment of so many participants in the various programmes.  The Festival provides a vital space for performance and for the nurturing of those learning to develop in the various disciplines.  Across the generations it gathers  a community who appreciate creativity, beauty and sparkle.  I invite you to offer your own involvement, support and encouragement.

The Rt. Revd. Dr Alastair Redfern

Bishop of Derby
