Although community cafes are great spaces (not home, not work) where people hang out regularly, the bigger less regular events are also vital for community.
Three major community led events in Nottingham are Sneinton Festival, Sherwood Art Week, and Fun on the Forest (Bulwell).
They are thinking about doing a smaller event this year. The main day is always the first Sat in July. Current Secretary is firstname.lastname@example.org, who you can email to find out more or go on his mailing list.
Sherwood Art Week
They have a new website – http://www.sherwoodartweek.co.uk/ – that you can sign up to on the front page to get a e-newsletter – if you also sign up as member then you can add a link on their site, and get other benefits…
Fun on the Forest
They are looking for stalls and supporters (date of event 29th June). See that booking form and other event upcoming in Bulwell here Doc1
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.
