Lakeside Arts Centre



Lakeside, the University of Nottingham’s public arts centre and museum, has established an enviable reputation for its year round programme of high quality exhibitions, music, theatre, dance, comedy and participatory events, appealing to audiences from across the region. We have also recently welcome the Museum of Archaeology to Lakeside, which now occupies a brand new exhibition space and like the gallery, has free admission.

Lakeside’s work with children and young people - including youth theatre groups, gallery art groups, summer schools, with excellent theatre provision - has gained enormously in popularity and regularly attracts capacity audiences.
 
In addition, Lakeside promotes a number of eagerly anticipated annual events including Chinese New Year celebrations in late January/early February, the International Children’s Theatre and Dance Festival in June, and LUSTRE - the Midlands premier contemporary craft makers’ market in early November.

We also a regional partner with many other local cultural venues and support and lead national and regionally significant events. We are part of Spirit Nottingham and Ticketing Network East Midlands.
 
Conveniently located on the University Park campus, Lakeside houses two excellent cafes; the Gallery Café which serves homemade sandwiches, cakes, hot food and drink and the Pavilion Café, a bistro and delhi-bar serving speciality coffees, flavoured teas, wines and beers as well as sandwiches and paninis.

Overlooking Highfield's park & playground, and the University lake, Lakeside provides a wealth of experience, whether you are 2 or 92!

LAKESIDE ART INVESTIGATORS


Why not be an Art Investigator?


The Art Investigator activity bags can be borrowed in the Djanogly Art Gallery by 7 to 12 year olds and used with adult supervision while looking at the exhibition. To help children familiarise themselves with the exhibition, there is an etch-a-sketch, a magnifying glass, some rubber stamps, paper, scissors and pencils in each bag, as well as an activity sheet with questions to encourage children to enquire about the art.


The Art Investigator experience is intended to celebrate the natural curiosity of children, encouraging them to make the most of the stimulating exhibitions at Lakeside, and express their personal responses to the work on show. Although interaction with adults is encouraged and supervision is necessary, these bags have been designed to support children in their independent learning. They can use the contents of the bags at their own pace and return to use them as often as they like.

classes of school children may use these bags, as well as families. Six are available and can be easily shared amongst a class, with provision of extra clipboards and activity sheets. If you bring a class of children it is advisable to book the activity bags in advance by contacting Ruth Lewis-Jones, Galleries Education Officer: ruth.lewis-jones@nottingham.ac.uk. There is no charge for this.

The bags will be available for use in every Djanogly exhibition, with some changes to the contents and a new activity sheet to suit the show.  Once the bags have been used and returned to the gallery counter, every Art Investigator may claim their special stickers and badge.
