Three new spectacular shows this Spring at Derby Arena

Derby Arena will play host to three newly announced shows this Spring as we prepare our 2023 programme.

Appearing between March and May next year, Circus of Horrors, Michael Starring Ben and Magic of Motown will tantalise audiences and offer a wide range of entertainment for audiences.

Dare devils, The Circus of Horrors (16+) are to return to Derby Arena on Fri 24 March for another, brand new, heart-racing show after previously terrifying audiences earlier this year. The Haunted Fairground promises to combine a brilliant rock show with amazing yet bizarre circus acts; all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil, you would be halfway there!

Whether you’ve seen The Circus of Horrors with us before, or on either Britain’s Got Talent or London’s West End; prepare to be mystified and horrified – in the best possible way, you will never have experienced anything like this. Tickets are now on sale from the DerbyLIVE website and range between £30 - £27, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Supplementary tickets for car parking vouchers and the beer package are also available.

We have a real Thriller for you this April as Michael Starring Ben moonwalks into town. Join us at Derby Arena on Fri 21 April to take a journey back in time to remember Michael Jackson; the man, the music and the magic. Michael Starring Ben is a hit theatre producing starring the UK’s ultimate Michael Jackson tribute artist, Ben Bowman. Not only does Bowman look and sound like the King of Pop himself, but his dedication to the routine means audiences truly believe they are watching Michael Jackson himself.

The show boasts a sensational live band, dazzling costumes and iconic dance routines bound to get audiences up on their feet. Prepare for the ultimate showcase of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits including Beat It, Billie Jean and Man in the Mirror, along with classics from The Jackson 5. Tickets are available now from the DerbyLIVE website ranging from £32.50 - £30.

Last but certainly not least, returning to Derby Arena by popular demand for a brand new show on Sat 27 May is Magic of Motown. There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to reach the heights of this show, which is now one of the biggest success stories in British theatre history. Come along and celebrate all things Motown as we take you on a journey and party like it’s 1968.

Get ready for glittering costumes, dazzling dance routines and outstanding musicians as this breath-taking live concert grooves on down to Derby Arena. You will be going Loco down in Acapulco as we take you back down memory lane with all the Motown classics from artists such as, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves, The Jackson 5, Smokey Robinson, and many more. Make sure to wear your dancing shoes! Tickets are £33.50 and are now available on the DerbyLIVE website.

Tickets for all three are on sale now with prices ranging from £27 - £33.50 depending on the show. Tickets can be purchased on the Derby LIVE website, at the Sales and Information Centre Riverside Chambers, Full Street, Derby, DE1 3AF, or by calling 01332 255 800.
