Great Food

We are both passionate about food and for us it’s quality over quantity. But that doesn’t mean you don’t get good portions, it means you get plenty of good produce!

We use thick cut bacon and Cumberland sausages for the meat eaters and take pride in our scrumptious vegetarian breakfasts. But for those of you who require a specialised diet (e.g. gluten and/or dairy free etc) we will always endeavour to satisfy those needs with tasty and varied alternatives**

Derby Festé 2018 celebrates 250 years of Circus! Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Saturday 29 September.

Derby Festé 2018

The city’s popular annual festival has been extended to three days for the first time this year – bringing a bag full of tricks and a sprinkling of magic to the city centre.

This year Derby Festé is inspired by the nationwide 250 years of Circus – marking the milestone anniversary of the first circus performance near London’s Waterloo in 1768 by showman Philip Astley.

The festival kicks off on Thursday night at Bass’ Recreation Ground with the first of three performances of an exciting and exhilarating circus by French company, Circa Tsuica.

Presented by Crying Out Loud, ‘Now or Never’ will run on Thursday, Friday and Saturday early evenings and is billed as a reinvention of circus traditions for the 21st century.  Tickets are limited for each show and are priced at just £10 each.

As the party begins in the Big Top, the 11 performers mingle with the crowd, making and sharing Breton crêpes, before they launch into a feast of music and circus. They fly, fling and swing across the tent on trapezes, tightropes, Cyr wheels, trick bicycles, trampolines and seesaws.

All the while, Circa Tsuica’s acrobat-musicians play their thundering brass rhythms accompanied by young musicians from Derby Music Centre Circus Brass.

The city’s popular Bustler Market will be having a double header, bringing street food and drinks from around the world at Riverlights and the Market Place on Friday evening, and all day on Saturday.

Friday night will see the opening of the Jon Marshall’s traditional 1950’s Side Shows on the Market Place alongside the virtual reality piece, ‘VR Playground’ by Thrill Laboratory.

The live performance will be courtesy of French company Cie Dyptik who will thrill the crowds with their energetic hip-hop dance performance ‘D Construction’ staged around metal scaffolding.

On Saturday the streets will burst to life from 11am with a circus procession through St Peters Quarter and the Cathedral Quarter – trumpeting the start of street entertainment performance across the city centre including live music, circus performances, dance, and some incredible characters.

The Saturday evening starts with a mesmerising parade ‘FierS á Cheval’ which is a company of beautiful larger than life glowing white horses winding through the Cathedral Quarter.

The parade will finish in the Market Place where visitors can then enjoy light projections dancing on the buildings in a finale to celebrate 10 years of QUAD.

For more information about Derby Festé please head to and tickets are available now for ‘Now or Never’ by Circus Tscuia at

Derby Festé is produced and presented by Déda, Derby LIVE, QUAD and Derby Theatre in association with the Without Walls Associate Touring Network. Without Walls is the UK’s largest commissioner of outdoor arts shows, taking inspiring new work to audiences all over the country and beyond.

Festé is funded by Arts Council England and Derby City Council, with sponsorship from the University of Derby, Smith Partnership, Cathedral Quarter and Intu Derby.

Terms and Conditions

Chuckles Guesthouse Derby run a friendly and fairly informal bed and breakfast at Chuckles, however, needs must, and there are a few points that it is important you should take note of when confirming any booking with us.

Valid card details will be required at the time of any booking and the first night’s stay will be charged to your card as a non-refundable deposit unless otherwise notified.

Chuckles Guesthouse Derby are a small establishment and any cancellation, ‘no-show’ or curtailment (i.e.. cutting short a booked stay), will impact on us.  We therefore request that you provide a minimum of 7 days’ notice if a cancellation is to be made in order not to incur any charges.  In the event that Chuckles Guesthouse Derby do not receive the full notice or a curtailment of stay, and we are unable to re-book the room, a full charge for the booked period or any part thereof that is not re-booked will be required.

Where bookings are made for arrival to be within 72 hours, full payment will be made on the credit/debit card given, and no refunds offered for any cancellations.

Whilst we appreciate there are times when cancellation of a stay with us is unavoidable, please understand that when you make a booking you enter into a firm legal contract with Chuckles Guesthouse Derby and your booking is regarded as such.

NB: When a booking is made for a high-demand event and a cancellation/amendment is received less than three weeks of the date of the event, should we be unable to re-book the room for the same period, a full charge will be requested and/or any deposit retained without any further permission being required.
