Derby's greatest talent

"Derby was initially a market town, but grew rapidly in the industrial era, claiming to be one of birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution, and with the arrival of railways in the 19th century, Derby became the heart of the British rail industry. On top of this, the city is known for it's advanced transport manufacturing and home to the second largest aero-engine manufacturer, Rolls-Royce.

Derby was given its city status in 1977. Before this, it was one of few towns in England to have a cathedral but not a city status. Since then the city has become well known as a significant cultural centre for the deaf and sign language community; the estimated deaf population in Derby is three times higher than the national average.

The city attracts many football fans to the Pride Park Stadium to watch Derby County Football Club, also known as the 'Rams', home games. In recent years, the stadium has also hosted concerts and monster truck events, with a capacity of 33,597 seats. "
