Derby Grande Finale

This Saturday 13th June, Past Lives Derby will be unveiled! We’ll be showing cine film footage that we have gathered from Derby residents at QUAD accompanied by a live music soundtrack featuring players from Sinfonia Viva,  young musicians from Derby and South East Derbyshire Music Centres and the Past Lives ensemble.

We’ve digitised Derby footage from 1930s – 1970s, see a preview of one of cine reels below. Much of this footage has never been seen outside of the families who have donated the footage, all of these cine film home movies when brought together show a unique view of everyday life in Derby.

Elephants from Billy Smarts Circus leave Derby Railway Station on Midland Road and travel through the streets towards Bass recreation ground in 1957. Filmed and donated to the Derby Past Lives Project by David Larkin.

Tickets for the performance are selling fast, you can book yours via QUAD’s box office on 01332 290 606
