Sarah Millican announces second Derby date – and Anything for Love returns

Comedian Sarah Millican will bring her hilarious anecdotes back to Derby for a second show in 2024. Tickets have been flying out for Sarah’s Late Bloomer Tour, which rolls into Derby on Sunday 23 March.

Sarah has now announced she’ll perform a second date at Derby Arena at 8pm on Friday 8 November 2024 – and tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 16 June. It’s the latest exciting addition to 2024’s calendar, with the smash hit Anything for Love – The Meat Loaf Story also returning.

When Sarah Millican was a bairn, she wouldn’t say boo to a goose. She was quiet at school, with not many friends and no boobs ‘til she was 16. Now? Now she is loud, with good friends, a self-described ‘cracking rack’ and goose booing all over the shop.
The show explores how the underdog becomes the confident and vibrant person Sarah is today; filled with stories of painful adolescence we can all relate to. Expect lots of discussion of dinners and Lady Gardens.

You may have seen Sarah before, but with her naturally funny personality and quick wit, you’re bound to be laughing your socks off. This brand-new show features new material, so prepare to laugh at her, laugh with her and beside her. The show is recommended for ages 16+.

If rock music’s more your thing than comedy, Anything for Love – The Meat Loaf Story will be riding into Derby Arena again at 8pm on Friday 20 September 2024. Following his 2023 sell-out tour, the highly acclaimed recording artist Steve Steinman brings you his brand-new production featuring over 25 of Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman’s greatest hits.

For more than 30 years, Steve has toured the world with his musical tribute to Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf. With an incredible stage set, ten-piece live band combined with Steve’s well-known sense of humour and stage presence, the show can only be described as awesome.

It will have you up on your feet dancing and singing out loud to some of Meat Loaf’s greatest hits including Anything For Love, Bat Out Of Hell, Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Dead Ringer For Love and many, many more.
Tickets for Anything for Love – The Meat Loaf Story are available now while tickets for Sarah Millican go on sale at 10am on Friday 16 June. Priced at £34.50, they’re available via the Derby LIVE website, at the Sales and Information Centre Guildhall Theatre on Market Place, Derby, DE1 3AE, or by calling 01332 255 800.
