It is with tremendous regret that we have to announce the cancellation of next week's performances of 'Henry IV (Part 2)' due to circumstances beyond our control. Our principal actor and dear friend Steve Dunning has suffered a suspected broken pelvis and will now be unable to appear in the role of Falstaff. Given the size of the part and the short time available to us we have had to accept that there is no realistic alternative that would see the play go ahead.

Derby Live will be contacting ticket holders to arrange refunds as soon as possible. In the meantime we thank our audiences for their patience and understanding at this difficult time.

Our thoughts are with Steve and his family and we wish him all the best for a full and speedy recovery.
