Global warming?!

Definitely global warming. I wouldn't have dreamed of planting it 10 years ago when we hit -10C quite regularly but now we rarely get much below
-3C and never for a long period. I have other tender(ish) plants surviving the winter too.

Do you live in the milder south Jess. Wondering if it would be ok outdoors in derbyshire?

Yes I do.
How cold do you get in Derby? I am sure in a sheltered spot and a bit of protection you could grow one. Make sure it is Basjoo though. None of the others are as hardy.
