QUAD has recently become the latest influential institution to enter a partnership with Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
QUAD - a Cinema, Gallery, Cafe Bar and Workshop - recently welcomed its 500,000th visitor, despite only opening its doors in September 2008.
An impressive complex situated in the city’s Market Square and a matter of metres from The Guildhall – the location for the formation of Derbyshire County Cricket Club 140 years ago – QUAD has become Derby’s most recognised culture and entertainment centre.
The relationship is set to enhance the club’s already impressive Members Benefits Scheme – which sees Derbyshire members enjoy discounts in a wide variety of stores, restaurants, shops, hotels and more throughout the county – with members now eligible to a 10% discount in QUAD’s Cafe Bar by producing their membership card.
The club will also be proud sponsors of QUAD’s highly anticipated ID Fest, which runs from November 25th to November 28th.
The festival will cover all angles of our perception of English identity. A variety of special events, director’s talks – including the likes of acclaimed actor and director David Morrissey - classic screenings and film reviews are planned as well as workshops and lectures throughout the four day period.
Derbyshire Chief Executive Keith Loring said “The facilities and services QUAD offers both to the people of Derby and the wider community is very impressive. Their standing and commitment to the area is something we certainly subscribe to and we look forward to working with QUAD in the future.’
QUAD’s Deputy Director Adam Buss added: “Derbyshire County Cricket Club is a fantastic partner to QUAD. Our ethos is to be rooted in Derby but speak to the world and this is very much in keeping with the ambitions of Derbyshire CCC. We are proud to be associated with one of the most successful and historic organisations in the city.’
