The event, which also marks the opening of Thyme Restaurant at Riverlights, takes place on Saturday 18th June from 11am until 4pm.

Matt McGuiness at Furthest from the Sea said: “It’s fantastic to be able to include Derby Riverlights in St Peters Quarter to this year’s festival. It adds a unique performance space for some wonderful Derbyshire family entertainment in this truly city wide event.”

On behalf of Riverlights, Mark Holmes, of Moorfield Group said: “We are thrilled to be able to host this community led festival and look forward to welcoming all to enjoy Riverlights’ unique waterside setting.”
