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!

We’re making a splash this summer celebrating 25 years of Nottingham Lakeside Arts.

In a special installation, the Djanogly Gallery will be reimagined as the old Highfields Park Lido. Commissioned digital artist Barret Hodgson invites visitors to take a unique and interactive dip through the decades, from the opening of the Lido in 1924, through to its final season in 1980, and on to the opening of the Djanogly Gallery in 1992. The two week installation is an immersive, and at times interactive, 25 minute experience for everyone to enjoy, inspired by memories and images of Highfields Lido, and featuring highlights of exhibitions from the Djanogly Gallery from the last 25 years.

Come on in, the water’s lovely!

Highfields Lido was one of the many gifts Sir Jesse Boot made to the city of Nottingham. When it opened in August 1924 it was the largest inland open-air swimming pool in the country. It remained a prominent feature of Highfields Park until the City Council closed the space after its summer season in 1980. Eventually the Lido was demolished and the site acquired by the University of Nottingham.

In 1992, the Djanogly Gallery and Angear Visitor Centre opened to the public, and in 1994 the adjacent School of Music and Djanogly Recital Hall opened, completing the first stage of the arts centre. In 2001, the Pavilion, including the Djanogly Theatre, was opened, and in 2011 the galleries were expanded and the University Museum relocated to Lakeside.

Today almost 200,000 visitors annually attend and participate in events at Lakeside Arts as part of the University of Nottingham’s public arts programme. We hope Sir Jesse Boot would be proud.

We’d be delighted to hear your memories of the Highfields Lido – join us at facebook.com/LakesideArts #LidoLakeside to reminisce and share.
