A Derby Ditty

June 2021

Commissioned by Derby CAN, Front Door Theatre are proud to present a brand new co-created door-step show this summer.

A Derby Ditty  is a 10-15-minute live performance on your very own door-step. Co-created out of conversations we have had with Derby communities, in particular, Derby Carers and cared for.

The topic of conversation…..Derby!!!

From the Cathedral to the Eagle Market, from ‘Ey up mi Duck’ to Feste celebrations, A Derby Ditty  encompasses Derby in all its glory.


Performed by two local actor-musicians, we hope to leave you with a smile on your face and some music in your bones.

So don’t be mardy, grab ya kecks and stuff a cob down ya, for we could be Ditty’in on YOUR door-step soon!

It’ll be reet good.
