Nottingham City Centre – October 1st 2016

We welcomed the beginning of October by delivering two brilliant events – the Nottingham Canal Festival and the Nottingham Independent’s Festival. Both events were a great success, enjoyed thoroughly by members of the public, whilst showcasing all that the canal and local independent businesses have to offer.

This year marked Nottingham’s second Canal Festival and we were delighted to deliver this event on behalf of the Canals and River Trust once again. Situated against the canal side on Carrington Street, the day saw many families try the various activities on offer including canoeing, fishing, mural art, historical character walk and boat trips.

There was also a welcome addition of a compere whom really tied the event together with the folk acts located on the other side of the canal. The event once again presented the general public with an opportunity to celebrate and learn about the heritage of our waterways.

We were thrilled to have been engaged by the Nottingham BID to deliver the Nottingham Independent Festival. The festival was the first of its kind and was aimed at promoting the various independent businesses within Nottingham City Centre.

The Festival consisted of five stages erected in key locations around the city centre which played host to a wide variety of entertainment acts including dance troupes, bubbologists, singing princesses and eating contests. Stilt walkers went in and between all of the stages and we also had a caricaturist, face painter and Lost City Golf as activities for the duration.

The event drew audiences from all over the city and most importantly saw the promoted businesses experience a higher footfall as a result.

The team really enjoyed working on the project and we hope to continue seeing the Nottingham Independent tote bags around the city.
