Nottinghamshire is alive with cultural excitement. Sport, concerts, galleries, shows and festivals – our event calendar is long and varied – whenever you visit, you can be sure that Nottinghamshire will be alive with action and activity.
Our annual event calendar includes Europe’s best loved gaming festival, Robin Hood events evoking medieval times, literary celebrations and of course the best of food and drink. Visit Trent Bridge cricket ground for international cricket fixtures, or experience the thrill of an ice hockey game at the National Ice Centre.
For art lovers, there’s Nottingham Contemporary, one of largest centres for contemporary art in the UK, or the New Art Exchange, an international centre for the contemporary visual arts from Africa, the Caribbean and South Asia. And so much more, naturally, as Nottinghamshire is home to Europe’s largest number of artists per capita.
Theatre goers can enjoy the Nottingham Playhouse, a cutting edge venue for modern theatre and dance, plus three additional city based theatres and concert halls playing to wide variety of tastes from amateur theatre to West End classics. Or for music lovers, there’s Rock City and Bodega Social Club to Capital FM Arena via live pub stages, showcasing upcoming and world-famous artists, from classical to dance music.
Night owls can experience quaint pubs, trendy cocktail bars, multi-genre clubs and bars hidden in caves, safe in the knowledge that Nottingham flies the Purple Flag for variety, safety and cleanliness after dark.
Or simply soak up the atmosphere, unwind and relax, enjoying delicious food and cocktails – from award winning restaurants, local producers and Michelin starred Sat Bains Restaurant with Rooms.
That’s why in Nottinghamshire we love our calendar of events, festivals, sports and celebrations. We’re sure you will too.
