    NOTTINGHAM FLIES THE PURPLE FLAG TO CELEBRATE NIGHT TIME OFFERING

    Nottingham has gained further praise for being one of the best places in the country to go for a great night out.

    It has been announced that the city has been successful in retaining its Purple Flag Status, which deems Nottingham’s night time offering, and efforts to continually improve cleanliness and safety, to be amongst the best in the country.

The success is down to a collaborative effort between We Are Nottingham Leisure, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham Businesses Against Crime and the Nottingham Crime and Drugs

    How To Create A Festival

    Julia Thistleton-Smith from Headstock Festival gives you tips on how to create a festival.

    Want to know the most important thing you’ll need?  Nerves of steel.  Seriously, the festival industry has been compared to pure gambling and with an exceptionally crowded market place and a customer base with less money due to the tough economic climate it’s tough out there.

    If you’re determined it can be done.  Here at Newstead we put on our first commercial festival in 10 weeks last year and it got rave reviews and was short-listed for Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards.  The community in Newstead had put on a free community festival Treefest for ten
