Entertainment, the Nottingham way

If you’re a music fan, there’s the Motorpoint Arena – which showcases popular events and artists such as Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars. There are also great smaller venues such as Rock City, Rescue Rooms and Bodega which have regular gigs taking place across lots of genres.

Every May, the Dot to Dot festival brings lots of up-and-coming artists and bands to Nottingham, with student-friendly tickets prices too.

If you’re after a comedy night, check out JongleursThe Glee and Just the Tonic, where you can find some great stand-up comedians.

The Nottingham Playhouse hosts a range of dance, theatre, music and comedy performances, as does the Theatre Royal. Look out for the free Go Card for discounts on performances. There’s also the smaller Lace Market Theatre which showcases some great amateur plays – and you can even audition if you fancy!

When you want to take a break from Netflix, Nottingham has several cinemas for you to check out. There’s Cineworld, in the Cornerhouse complex, and independent cinemas including SavoyShowcaseScreen 22 and Broadway, which was named ‘smartest cinema in the world.’
