Derby-based theatre company Oddsocks Productions return to Derby this February. This time, the team known for bringing classic tales to life with a difference will be adding their inimitable trademark humour, live music and audience interaction to Carlo Collodi’s classic tale in Andy Barrow’s brand-new piece “The Adventures of Pinocchio”.
Every March, the world’s finest performers and teachers of klezmer gather at a tiny village in the Peak District. What is klezmer? The soul-wrenching, joyous music, song and dance of the Yiddish-speaking Eastern European Jews, now firmly established on the World Music scene and loved by Jews and non-Jews alike. Following a sell-out event last year for our 10th Kleznorth, we are delighted to announce another end-of-course public concert by our world-leading teaching faculty.
Thanks to the unpredictable weather, the February half term holiday is probably the trickiest one for finding things to keep children entertained. Luckily the team at In Derby has something for all ages, indoors or out, come rain, snow or sun.
