Green Festival and Sneinton Festival Coming up

The Nottingham Local food partnership including Ecoworks (and their new electric, vehicular stall), Stonebridge City Farm, AMC Gardens and others are going to be at the Green Festival again this year on Sunday 10th, 11-4pm.

The weather looks ok too, so hopefully see you there!


So here it is guys, this year’s SNEINTON FESTIVAL coming very soon (28th June-8th July). The main festival event is on July 7th 2012.  It starts with a Parade through the streets of Sneinton (with the ‘Olympic Ideals’ theme, promoting positive health, education, citizenship, community & spirituality) the on to Tricketts park for an event jam packed full of excellent activities, arts & crafts, stalls and food to satisfy all tastes. Plus with two music areas -the main stage and the SEND world vibes acoustic tent – we welcome many amazingly talented local musicians, performers and artsist to entertain and wow you all.

For more information check out the full event details on the programme attached or at these links – Front page,  Main programme page
Plus if you want to find out more about a particular event, volunteer or get involved in any way please contact us at

News Round up

Apologies for much missed news and no contact for a while.  I have become a father recently and so have been out of action for a while now!  Personally though it gives me renewed inspiration to help develop the community cafe scene in Nottingham, since I think children get so much out of being part of rich communities that Third Place‘s  (including commmunity cafes) are essential parts of.  “It takes a village to raise a child” they say and every happy village has its pub or cafe or tea house where people congregate and talk and hang out…

Anyway on with the news:-


Tomorrow is the Nottingham Local food Partnership’s (find us on facebook and twitter) fourth monthly Market.  We have a great range of stalls from Ecoworks, AMC gardens, Stonebridge City Farm, Veggies, Secret Kitchen and many more (including a farm shop selling local, wild game meats  like venison and partridge).  It’s from 10-3pm so come along and hangout, also have a look round the new Victoria Leisure centre.  There is a cafe unit that opens onto the square – it is still up for tender so, if interested, just contact the council and put your bid in…hopefully whoever gets it will create a community cafe and not just a business.


Alain Job from Melting pot at the Sycamore Centre, St Anns has opened a new venture in Victoria Centre Market upstairs in the fish and meats section.  He is selling delicious African Cuisine in a banana skin cone (the nkono concept!) Monday to Saturday 11-4pm.


Marsha Smith from Secret Kitchen held a social event last week Friday 5-9pm – it was great relaxed, unique community event and a first for Sneinton.  You could BYO wine and beer, bring the kids, the food was delicious and cheap and there was free musical entertainment. It was the the definitive ‘Third Place’ night and we could do with alot more nights like this around (especially for us with young children who can’t get to pub as much as they’d like)

Cafe bingo is still coming but there has been a delay due to funding issues….

Also am looking for further ideas and support for this project going forward – hopefully we can get an action group together soon.
