Back by popular demand… weddings are returning to The Derby Conference Centre!

Back in 2015, The Derby Conference Centre announced that it was no longer providing wedding services. However, over the past 12 months it has become evident that with the increased volume of enquiries, the people of Derby really miss not being able to tie the knot at this beautiful venue. Which is why the Centre is incredibly proud to announce that from Valentine’s Day, The Derby Conference Centre will once again be returning to the wedding venue market.
