Lakeside is the University of Nottingham’s unique public arts facility based in the family-friendly surroundings of Highfields Park.

Since adding the Civic Trust Award Winning D.H. Lawrence Pavilion to their existing portfolio of the Djanogly Art Gallery and Djanogly Recital Hall in autumn 2001, Lakeside has rapidly established itself as a hugely successful new multi-arts centre in the East Midlands attracting almost half a million visitors in our first 3 years.

Lakeside offers easy access to a year-round programme of high quality, diverse exhibitions, music, theatre, dance, comedy and literature performances, as well as the chance to participate in out-of-school workshop activities for children and young people. The buzzing programme is complemented by two attractive Cafés and beautiful parkland, making a visit to Lakeside an enjoyable event for the entire family.
