This year’s Arnold’s carnival will be held over three days instead of the usual two as the carnival expands with more entertainment across the weekend of the 14, 15 and 16 June.

The annual Arnold Carnival returns to Arnot Hill Park with a line-up including over 30 live music and dance acts, arts and crafts activities, fun fair, BMX and skateboarding sessions and more.

NEW: Check out the full listings for performance by day

Friday’s headliners are local five piece band, 94 Gunships, whose music ranges from blues pop to jazz folk and funk rock.

The Joe Strange Band headline the stage on Saturday, the band have been playing together for over 10 years, playing a huge range of genres making sure there is something for everyone.

Sunday opens with a Service by The Kings Church Arnold, and closes with headliners, Reggae on the Rocks. The five piece band specialise in reggae and soul music and are known for their performances of popular reggae tracks as well as their unique reggae versions of well-loved classics.

Along with performances from professional musicians, there will also be a variety of community music, dance groups, local school bands, choirs and solo artists performing over the weekend.

The carnival has more to offer besides music, with a fun fair, craft, charity and trade stalls and a dedicated food and drink court with a fully licensed bar. Children’s arts and crafts activity sessions will be hosted by Gedling Play Forum.

The event is free to attend on all three days with something for all the family to enjoy. Parking is limited but there will be additional spaces available at the Home Brewery car park on Sir John Robinson’s Way, thanks to Nottinghamshire County Council who have opened the staff car park for the weekend.

The event this year will be the council’s first ever “plastic clever” carnival, with catering providers required to follow good practice to cut down on single use plastics, and for the second year running the carnival will be a smoke free zone.

Other performances include a variety of dance and music from local schools and performers such as Simply Dance, Gedling Fun Chorus, Cranberry Flick, Prima Adult Tap Dancers, Burnstump Seely C of E Academy Choir, Ellis Guilford School, Arnot Hill Academy, Teremok – Nottingham Russian School, The Invisible Friends, Trinity Warriors Dance Academy, Nicole Bull, The Carlton Academy Dance, Caroline Mcmanus School of Irish Dancing, Jill Gregory School of Dancing, Lee Michael, Joe Cheetham, Chai, Richard Bonington Primary School, The Acadent Dance Studio, Copper Studios, Alex Bradford, The Rebecca Lomas Academy of Voice.
