Wheee! Free Family Weekend

Supported by the Woodland Trust - Wheee! Family Weekend Festival Partner

Join us for fantastic free entertainment from fabulous artists drawn from
across the UK.

Don’t miss Thrill Laboratory’s unnnervingly entertaining virtual reality worlds unfolding in front of your eyes or Motionhouse’s amazing dance performances. Look out for brilliant comedic acrobatic performances from Lusco e Fusco and musical comedy with juggling from the inimitable Chipolatas, and be amazed by a brand new outdoor piece from Joss Arnott involving a huge revolving drum kit. Enjoy all this, and great make and do arts and crafts activities with your family and friends. Make this a weekend to remember.

Please note: parking on campus is limited during half-term. The easiest way to get to Lakeside Arts is to use the Toton Lane/Hucknall tram line and get off at the University of Nottingham stop. Additional free parking will be available for Wheee! visitors at the University Park West Entrance, in the field behind Florence Boot Hall. This site is a pleasant 15 minute walk from Lakeside around the lake, so if you park here, please allow extra time to reach us.
