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!

Neverland at Lakeside
Suitable for 4+
From the same creative team that brought you A Christmas Carol in 2013, comes this new musical production for families, inspired by JM Barrie's timeless classic about a boy who never wants to grow up.
Meet a particularly cheeky Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy, grumpy Mr Darling and of course, a certain Captain Hook, as we are whisked across the sky to a world of transformation and enchantment.
From 4 December, visit our magical mini Neverland created for and by children in the Wallner Gallery. Discover Wendy’s bedroom, the mermaid Lagoon and an interactive magic tree. Plus, watch out for the flying Jolly Roger – an experience not to be missed!

Review title : Them with Frozen Tails, added by : Lisa (21/12/2010)
Event reviewed : 4-30 Dec: Them With Frozen Tails
"When you take two children under 6 to a performance, you never quite know what reaction you are going to get. However, I have to say with all honesty that I have never seen my son laugh so much at the antics of two people as I did today.
Them with Frozen Tails is a partly-improvised series of stories from around the World, narrated and acted by two very fine actors. There was singing and lots of energy and humour (some of which went over the kids' heads but was appreciated by the adults!)
There was plenty of audience participation and, I think it's safe to say, that the show was enjoyed by everyone there.
I would absolutely recommend this show, either as an alternative to the usual pantomime or, because its very good value for money at £7 per person, or as well. We will definitely be back for more if the show returns next year."
