Britain From The Air

About

Stunning new aerial photographs of Nottingham will be amongst the highlights of a major outdoor exhibition in Station Street.

The photos – including images of Nottingham Castle, Goose Fair, the Old Market Square and Nottingham Forest’s City Ground – will form part of the acclaimed Britain from the Air exhibition of more than 100 contemporary views.  It gives a unique perspective of some of the UK’s most breathtaking and thought-provoking landscapes and landmarks while telling the fascinating story of Britain’s geography and history.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “Newly-pedestrianised Station Street is quickly building a reputation for public art, with the innovative Line of Light poetry installation and now this fabulous street exhibition.

“It will offer a fantastic welcome to visitors arriving in the city over Christmas and the New Year as well as giving local people a new insight into views of Nottingham and surrounding areas”

Britain from the Air has been created by the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) and street gallery pioneers Wecommunic8 as a key part of the Society’s drive to engage the public with the geography of the UK. This is the first time the exhibition will have been seen in Nottinghamshire.

Britain from the Air is supported by world travel clothing company Craghoppers, the Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust and Rolex. It is brought to Nottingham by Nottingham City Council.

Dr. Rita Gardner, Director of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), said: Britain from the Air provides a fantastic opportunity to see Britain’s natural and human landscapes from a unique perspective and to explore the social, economic and environmental forces that shaped them.”

Britain From The Air will be on until at least Sunday 18 June 2017 and is visible 24 hours a day.
