Various locations, Lady Bay, Nottingham, NG2 5BE
Lady Bay Arts Festival 2017


Lady Bay Arts Festival
Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 May 2017 from 11am - 5.30pm (Sat) and 11am - 5pm (Sun)

Lady Bay's visual arts festival features over 80 top contemporary artists and makers exhibiting in homes, studios and gardens – an amazing line up in 32 venues opening throughout Lady Bay!

New for 2017 are venues Spoke & Co, Holme Lodge, Poppy & Pint and several artists’ studios plus many artists showing for the first time. All Hallows Church and halls will be hosting invited artists who will be transforming the spaces responding to FABRICATION.  Elsewhere there will be a number of starting points with creative hubs set out along the arts trail where visitors can purchase their brochures and begin exploring. The weekend promises a rare opportunity to experience a diverse range of art, to meet artists and to buy art.

Look out for special free workshops for children and families at Lady Bay Primary School and across the arts trail.

Lady Bay's very own delicious refreshments will be available at certain marked venues, the School, local pubs and cafes. Also new for this year will be Staffordshire oatcakes (a wrap filled with scrumptious savoury fillings) prepared by the entertaining Suburban Peasant, a special pop up eatery, based in the gardens at Leonard Cheshire, Holme Lodge.  Also taking apart are Poppy Folk Club’s wandering musicians and Lady Bay’s choir too!

Admission: £3 adults & U16 free (full colour brochure & map povided). Start at Poppy & Pint, Lady Bay Primary School, 131 Holme Road and All Hallows Church.

Bus Route no 11.  Limited street parking, pubs & Holme Road (Hook Car park)
