On Sunday 6th November, Derby Theatre will play host to Limelight, a grand charity gala, a prestigious evening of variety, performance and entertainment to raise funds for Plus One and the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre… and we are now delighted to announce the acts who will perform on the evening.

Limelight will be hosted by local radio presenter Andy Potter.

Plus One is a scheme, a partnership between some of the main arts organisations in the city, Derby Theatre, QUAD, Déda and Baby People, which provides young people in care and care leavers with free arts experiences in the city and the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre in Skegness provides residential holidays for children from across the county who need respite from the stress and difficulties they encounter within their daily lives.

Limelight will be a special red carpet gala event that will include canapés and a drink on arrival in the ticket price. So, why not come along and celebrate, and be entertained by, the vast wealth of talent our region has to offer and help raise funds for these two great children’s charities.

Tickets: £25, concessions £20. For more information and to book tickets call the Derby Theatre Box Office on 01332 593939 or visit www.derbytheatre.co.uk.
