The event, Derby’s biggest fireworks display, is expected to attract up to 10,000 people to The Incora County Ground for an exciting evening of rides, fun, games, food and spectacular pyrotechnics, set to music.
It will be an incredible start to the city’s Bonfire Night weekend revelries, and Purpose Media managing director Matt Wheatcroft says the business is delighted to play its part in helping Derby celebrate in style.
“The cricket club has been staging the fireworks display since 2016 and it has become one of the most anticipated events in the city’s calendar. Every year it puts smiles on the faces of thousands of people and we’re delighted to lend our support to make sure 2023 is no exception,” he said.
“During October we mark the 15th anniversary of launching our business and it seemed really appropriate to share those celebrations with a region which has been so very good to us and with the cricket club, who we have worked with successfully for a number of years.”
Based in South Normanton, Purpose Media is a strategic marketing agency, specialising in delivering comprehensive and impactful solutions across web, creative, video and digital marketing.
Its clients include huge local brands like Derby County FC and Royal Crown Derby and giant corporates such as True Refrigeration, which is active in more than 100 countries around the world.
“The business has come a long way since its early days in 2008 but our core aim, placing the customer at the heart of everything we do, has never changed and I’m delighted that some of our very first clients are still with us today,” said Matt.
Purpose has regularly supported local good causes, charities and sports clubs.
“We’re proud to come from Derbyshire and to work with so many great businesses across the East Midlands, so we are always keen to try to give something back,” said Matt. “The Derby Fireworks Night and Fun Fair is a brilliant way in this special year for us to say thank you to people locally.”
Derbyshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Ryan Duckett is delighted to have the company’s backing.
“This event has rapidly grown into Derby’s biggest Fireworks Night and regularly attracts 10,000 visitors to our multi-purpose venue. Purpose Media have been integral to its growth in recent years and it’s great to have their continued support for what is a hugely popular night for the local community.”
