Old Market Square
Saturday 13 July - Sunday 1 September

It’s back and better than ever before! Entertaining families for over ten years, Nottingham Beach returns to Old Market Square this
Summer. With sand, sea and a range of thrilling rides, traditional sideshows and great food and drink options.

Enjoy a trip to the seaside without leaving the city!

Get ready for some serious summer family fun with more sand and more entertainment than ever. There will be a number of traditional rides and games as well as beach BBQs and a bar catering for all ages. This year’s entertainment schedule is packed full of live music from local bands and artists, movie nights under the stars, beach volleyball tournaments and Just Ben hosting Variety on the Beach.

Rides have yet to be confirmed but in previous years attractions have included a reverse bungee, high ropes course, foot pool, crazy wave, sand dune racer, water balls, bungee trampolines, F1 car ride, hook-a-duck and comedy photobooth.

Plus, watch out for news of the Summer Nights programme of entertainment, sports and fun activities after work.

Free, family-friendly film screenings each Monday from 5pm. Vote for your favourite each week on the Nottingham Beach facebook page. 

Tuesday: Variety on the Beach
A weekly open mic hosted by Just Ben. 

Wednesday: Beach Volleyball

Thursday: Date Night Movie Night

Playa Day - Beach Club - Whereas Nottingham Beach will be open to everyone as usual, the Playa Day Club and Restaurant is a chance to enjoy a VIP experience. Relax and soak up the sun on pool-side style day beds and deluxe pool pods, normally seen gracing the sandy shores of the Mediterranean; while sipping a summery cocktail and enjoying live music and entertainment. Playa Day is for over 18s only, and a dress to impress code will apply.
