Lace Market Street Mural


First Street Mural of Nottingham's Street Art Project
NCC Lake Market Car Park


The Nottingham Project has  launched a major street art project in the city with a creative theme celebrating the ‘rebels and pioneers’ who have helped to shape the past, present and future of the city. The project is a first of its kind in Nottingham city centre. The hope is the project will not only bring life to areas of the city through the art but also drive tourism and bring people back to the city’s shops and businesses as covid restrictions come to an end.

The announcement comes with the unveiling of the first mural, celebrating Nottingham’s pioneering history with the lace industry, which has been created on the NCC Car Park located on Fletcher Gate. Designed and created by Nottingham street artist Rubes, the artwork is an intricate lace pattern that includes a number of references to Nottingham formerly being the world leader in lace making – from the Spinning Jenny machine to the Luddite movement.

Several organisations in the city have already put their support behind the project, including Nottingham City Council, Nottingham BID and the Canal & River Trust. The Nottingham Project, with support from the street art community in the city, has worked to identify a number of possible locations for murals and is now beginning the process of putting paint on the walls in an initial phase of artwork creation.
