Did you know you can see live bands at the Flower Pot, Derby. Such as Midge Ure last week.

Last Friday, 21st of May we went to see Midge Ure play a solo acoustic set at the Flower Pot, Derby.
This was the first time I had been to a gig at this venue. I'm sure you know who Midge Ure is, if not then shame on you. Watch THIS video to see if it reminds you!
The Flower Pot has lots of live bands on through out the year.

For more info please visit there website :

Tickets also on here :

You can also get tickets direct from The Flower Pot, so why not go and have a beer in the beer garden at the same time.

The Flower Pot pub is located at 25 King Street, Derby,Derbyshire, DE1 3DZ.

Have a look at my Google Streetview image of the Gig poster wall of the Flower Pot. As you can see Google Streetview must have driven past the Flower Pot in March 2008.

There is a rather handy multi-storey car park just a few feet away from this venue on Chapel Street which is open 24 hours a day and has 524 spaces so you should have no problem parking here. I have marked this car park in red in my map above. The Flower Pot pub is marked in Green.

More info on Midge Ure:

Midge Ure last played a gig in Derby on 29th April 2005 in the Darwin Suite of Derby Assembly Rooms.
If you are a fan of 80s music then perhaps you were there at "The Hitmakers Tour" on November 15th 2006 when ABC, Howard Jones and Toyah Wilcox played in the Great Hall.

Hope you found this blogpost of interest.
