The Maypole

This great little pub has a 70 seater theatre with a small stage and a history of supporting performing arts.

"I became the only Black Landlady of a Pub and Theatre in the UK in Sept 2019. I am very proud to say I am the Cultural Music and Arts Award Winner Derby and also the Landlady of the Maypole cafe bar and Theatre.  I am passionate about the promotion of the Arts in and around our area.  We have so many talented people and I wanted to give them a platform and a place they could be creative and mix, collaborate and socialise with others of the same mindset. I want the Maypole to be welcoming and inclusive for all of our interesting and diverse community.   My aim to make a fun exciting space/place for all, I invite the whole community to get involved if you have an idea however small or big come down explore engage and be included."  Donna Briscoe-Greene

We started talking to Donna about how we might work together not long after she took the Maypole on in September 2019. 

THEN CAME COVID. Which held things up but we're back.
