About

Cave City – Nottingham Underground Festival
Friday 5 – Wednesday 10 April
Various locations across the city

Head underground for Nottingham’s annual celebration of all things cave.

Did you know that Nottingham has over 800 caves beneath its streets?

This year, Cave City invites you to explore what lies beneath your feet with an extended five-day festival crammed full of fun and intriguing events. Discover Nottingham’s hidden landscape through a series of tours, talks, activities and experiences.

Take your pick from a series of fun and intriguing events across the city, including tours, talks, activities and experiences, and discover more about this hidden landscape. The programme includes talks and guided tours at some of the city's lesser known cave locations which have never before been explored by the public.

The Peel Street Cave Tours are back by popular demand, and we are very excited to announce that the Rock Cemetery Catacombs will be included in this year’s line-up. Businesses such as The Malt Cross and Cave Escape will be hosting unique events throughout the festival, and keep your eyes peeled for news of our Underground Cinema and Cave Yoga!
