Derby Theatre wins UK Award

Bondholder Derby Theatre has won the inaugural Excellence in Arts Education Award at the annual UK Theatre Awards - the only nationwide awards to honour and celebrate the outstanding achievements of regional and national theatre throughout the UK.

The Theatre won the award in recognition of its learning theatre vision and in specific celebration of This is Derby - a unique project delivered with other cultural and sports organisations in the city to provide a broad range of experiences to young people.

Sarah Brigham, Artistic Director and Chief Executive at Derby Theatre said:
“We are absolutely thrilled that the UK Theatre Awards have introduced this award for the first time, and that we are the inaugural winners. We know that ensuring all people, no matter what their background or age, have the right to an arts education is vital and at Derby Theatre we have put that central to our vision."
