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!
