It’s not all about the World Cup!

Just one day to go until we celebrate football in Derby!
Derby County FC has had its own successes over the years, with many supporters regarding the period under Jim Smith’s management as a heyday for the club.

Ryan Hills event: Groundwork: The Inside Story behind Jim Smith’s Derby County

Join us on Wednesday 30 November at 7pm in Landau Forte to hear Ryan talking about the glory days of the 1990s.  Ryan will be joined by two broadcasting icons, Graham Richards and Colin Gibson – the voices of the club for three decades.  They will be talking (and reminiscing) to Kerry Ganly, former sports journalist and now account manager at Penguin PR.

Tickets cost £10 and are available on the door at Landau Forte or book online.

Sebastian Payne: The Fall of Boris Johnson: The Full Story
Wednesday 21 December, 7.30pm
