Friends and Supporters
We’re very lucky to have the support, and input, from a number of Derby organisations…

Dance curators, ceilidh organisers, flyer-flower makers – and so much more… they’re wonderful people all round. They get involved with many aspects of the festival, and in events such as Derby’s St George’s Celebrations.
This year, they are looking after the amazing Flyer Flowers again, and also running a slightly different version of the John Birmingham Cup!
You can find more details about how to get involved with this on the JB Cup page

Furthest From The Sea
