Various locations, Nottingham city centre 
Saturday 30 June 2018 | 10am - 4pm

Presented by It’s in Nottingham, this year’s Independents Festival will be filled to the brim with music, activities and entertainment in celebration of the great independent offer in Nottingham’s city centre

The main festival will be staged around four independent hubs of the city, each with its own theme:

Families will love the interactive and colourful activities taking place in Trinity Square, including Disney Princesses Elsa and Belle, Charlotte Lade, the football juggler - and not forgetting Marshall from Paw Patrol.

LAST MINUTE CHANGE – The Pelham Street stage will now be at St Peter’s Square! Watch chilled out acoustic sets at St Peter’s Square and an eclectic mix of world music acts on Middle Pavement. In Hockley’s Carlton Square you’ll be welcomed by Ringmaster Mark and a whole host of circus themed arts and activities.

Around the city you'll be able to find street parties in St James' Street, Trinity Walk, and Friar Lane.
