Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Nottingham Lakeside Arts is The University of Nottingham's unique public arts centre and museum presenting an eclectic programme of music, dance, theatre, visual art, special collections and family events all year round.

Based in the idyllic grounds of Highfields Park with two excellent cafés and a gallery shop with craft cabinets selling original works by leading craftmakers, there’s a varied programme including free events and workshops for both families and individuals.

With a direct tram stop outside, Nottingham Lakeside Arts is the ideal place to take time out, unwind and experience the best visual and performing arts. And now, you can get a reduced £2 tram return ticket for Lakeside ticketed events. All you need is your ticket for the Lakeside event/show, then select the event ticket on the tram ticket machine and board the tram!

For more information, get in touch @LakesideArts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
