Derby is renowned for its diverse mixture of arts and culture.

It is therefore no surprise that Derby Theatre has recently been awarded essential funding from the Arts Council. Derby Theatre is one of the region’s leading arts organisations. Derby theatre is owned by The University of Derby.

Over the next three years, Derby Theatre’s aim is to launch, develop and monitor the success of a Learning Theatre Pilot Programme.

The University hope this will become a national exemplar for education and training in theatre and provide the University of Derby with a distinctive proposition for students looking to study arts-related subjects.

The University of Derby is ranked 3rd in Fashion & Textiles, ranked 5th in Art and ranked 6th in Design and Crafts.
