Get Involved

Nottingham Lakeside Arts offers great opportunities to learn from specialist one-off sessions with visiting artists and demonstrators, who are involved in the professional performance, exhibition or museum programme. Regular series of workshops or evening classes are also offered.

Check in regularly for details of sessions in Visual and Performing Arts - all delivered in purpose-built studios - and Ancient and Traditional Crafts led by expert specialists.

Post-show discussions
Free post-show discussions with companies and individual artists regularly follow many of our performances in the Djanogly Theatre and everyone is welcome to attend.  These are announced at each performance and will also be marked on each of the performance diary entries.

Gallery and Museum tours
In addition to the published learning programme, free tours for Djanogly Gallery & Angear Visitor Centre exhibitions, and the Museum,  are available to community groups, University of the Third Age, Further and Higher Education groups.  To arrange a Gallery tour please contact Ruth Lewis-Jones, Learning Officer (Galleries) on 0115 8232218; to arrange a Museum tour, contact Clare Pickergill, Keeper, on 0115 9514815.
