As this year coincides with Nottingham Puppet Festival there will be more than a few puppet-related activities in the mix! Details will be revealed in the Wheee! festival brochure available in March.

Nottingham 10k 2020
Please be aware that Sunday 31 May coincides with the return of the Nottingham 10k run, so the South Entrance will be closed until 12noon. Every £5 entry to the Nottingham 10k run will be donated to support the important work and research of the University of Nottingham's Breast Cancer Research Centre.

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 the University of Nottingham stop. 
Additional free parking is available for Wheee! visitors at the University Park West Entrance, in the field behind Florence Boot Hall, opening daily at 10am except on Sunday 31 May, when it will open at 11.30am. This site is a pleasant 15-minute walk to Lakeside around the lake, so if you park there, please allow extra time to reach us.
