About Event

The Hyson Green Cultural Festival has been a staple of Nottingham's summer festival season since 2014. It is a free family day of activities, music and performances which take places on the Forest Recreation Ground, which aims to bring together all members of the Hyson Green, and wider Nottingham, community. An inclusive event, everyone is welcome! The festival has grown year on year, and won a 'Best Community Event' award in 2014. 

The Stage

We like to provide a varied lineup of music and performances which is both family friendly and enjoyable for young and old alike. we feature a range of music from local talent, which very often has world music influence.


The Stalls

We invite local business, charities and services to run stalls, selling, providing information or running raffles and games. We also like to have a diverse range of caterers and food sellers so there is something everybody likes! If you would like to run a stall please see our Book A Stall page.


Health Corner

The community can access health and information stalls for free advice and health checks, plus free massages and reflexology. There are also free taster fitness sessions throughout the day, suitable for all ages and abilities.


Community Corner

Our community corner provides families and festival goers with activities ranging from arts and crafts to active games and sports day races. In the past we have had the Mouthy Poets run poetry sessions and also had African drumming workshops. All for free!
