When speaking with Mansion about their sponsorship of the festival they said; “We are over the moon to be supporting Derby Festé 2011. When we were approached to support the festival, we jumped at the opportunity. The event has been a huge success over the past few years and reflects on the city in an incredibly positive manner. As we are a relatively new business, it made total sense to align ourselves with Derby Festé. The festival and of course the people behind it represent all that’s best about Derby and we see ourselves emulating this with what we do at Mansion.
Derby deserves recognition for what it’s doing! Although there are thing happening in the City that many of us are not happy about right now, we at Mansion want to focus on as many positives as possible. Derby Festé is one such positive! It brings flare, colour and real vibrancy to the City. It’ll be a great event and we hope the run up creates a real sense of positive energy that we can all take advantage of!”

The festival is such a vibrant, energetic and colourful festival, and we, as a company, love to be associated with events that portray Derby in such a positive fashion. We are particularly looking forward to Sarruga, the Fire Garden and the Salsa events. It’s a great coup for Derby to be able to put on such a show and it’s great credit to the skill and hard work put in by everyone involved.
For us as a hotel, we might see an increase in business on that particular weekend, but, for us, it’s much more about supporting and being a part of the success of the festival”.
