We then gathered outside where we were greeted by four tall, mysterious figures who led a growing crowd up to Cathedral Green. At Cathedral Green, they then transformed into huge unearthly beings that magically lit up and performed a dancing ritual which culminated in the release of a huge ball of light into the sky, bright enough to light up the entire Green. The Close-Act characters then led people off into the market place for the big street party.

We all enjoyed the Derbyshire Volunteers Ceilidh Band who got everyone up and dancing in the market place, some of us got quite confused with the moves! The centre was buzzing with people all enjoying the continental feel that had spread over Derby.
