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!

Sunday 09 November: 1pm & 3.30pm

Presented by Vagabond's Hat

Cost: £7 all tickets

Djanogly Theatre

Book online

Vagabond's Hat blends heart-stopping circus skills with poetic storytelling and great live music to create joyful performances.

Under the bumbling leadership of Victor the Victorian an unlikely team of 3 workers must pull together and perform a series of extraordinary tasks in an attempt to restart their ramshackle musical engine which is fuelled by imagination, discovery and play.

Vagabond's Hat uses a quirky mix of high skill circus, slapstick comedy and innovative music making to weave together the uplifting steampunk fairytale that is Kinesonic.

Sunday 23 November 1pm & 3.30pm

The Princess and the Pea by Mike Kenny
presented by Tutti Frutti and York Theatre Royal

Cost:  £7.50 all tickets

Djanogly Theatre

Book online

Suitable for 3 – 6 years and families
Running time: approximately 55 minutes

Do you want to hear a true story?

Well.. imagine a place where what you see is not what it seems,
A secret place with a hidden castle and hidden stories,
A place where the Princesses don’t know they are Princesses and the Princes don’t really want to become Kings,
A place where appearances can be deceptive!

Do you want to hear an exciting story?

Then imagine one wintery stormy night everything changes,
The east wind blows through the castle of secrets, blowing away the cobwebs, lifting high the royal mattresses, ruffling feathers and unsettling all who live there.

Do you want to hear a happy story?

Then imagine a real Prince and a real Princess, oh and a pea!

In this new fantastical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, Mike Kenny and the inventive tutti frutti team create a funny, original, beautiful retelling of this familiar tale.

Saturday 06 December - Wednesday 24 December various times

Flat Stanley

Tickets:  £8.50 - £10

Djanogly Theatre

This Christmas, Lakeside welcomes the return of Flat Stanley, after its premiere here in 2009. Based on the popular 1964 children’s novel of the same name by Jeff Brown, it has been adapted for the stage by Mike Kenny.

This classic story follows the adventures of Stanley Lambchop, once an ordinary healthy boy, until a heavy bulletin board falls on him in his sleep! He awakes to find he has been flattened, and is now only half an inch thick.

However, it does not take Stanley long to discover how much fun being flat as a pancake can really be. He can slide under closed doors, be flown like a kite by his brother, and even visits a friend in California simply by folding himself up and posting himself there! Join Stanley as he embarks upon fun and heroic adventures that will fill you full of wonder at Christmas time.

Please visit Lakeside's website to find out more information about all forthcoming events and to book your tickets.
