The carnival will include street theatre, comedy acts and circus entertainment.

The day is being organised by the Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID).

Eve Taylor, BID project executive for the Cathedral Quarter, said: "We love creating events that put a smile on people's faces when they visit the Cathedral Quarter. Our carnival day will be filled with fun, and we hope families will come out and enjoy the street theatre and entertainment we have arranged.

"We know how important it is to organise free events for the people of Derby - and that's why we do it. Our first carnival day will bring live daytime performances to the city ahead of another event we sponsor, Derby Feste, which starts in September."

The day will begin with the Dress Circle Street Theatre group performing its unique comedy show.

This will be followed by a giant puppet elephant that will parade through the Market Place.

Alongside the performers, there will also be a number of free activities including cricket games, circus workshops, face painting and crazy golf.
