A new space designed to engage local people in the city’s future is set to open in Derby, thanks to a partnership between Marketing Derby, the University of Derby, Derby City Council and Lathams.

Called the Derby City Lab, the space, in St James Street, will house Marketing Derby’s Investor Showcase and a rolling programme of exhibitions focused on future pipeline projects and ideas.

The unit, which has been provided courtesy of Clowes Developments, is adjacent to the city’s regeneration frontline, close to the £200 million Becketwell scheme.

It is also close to Marketing Derby’s new office location at Staton Young’s Cubo Derby site, in Victoria Street.

Derby City Lab will be manned by Marketing Derby staff and a team of volunteers – or ‘change-makers’.

It will open to the public with a special exhibition hosted by Down to Earth Derby, which will feature visions for a greener city produced by the world-leading Eden Project.
