Nottingham Parks Shows

Tickets are free but everyone over 2 years old needs a ticket. Reserve your place and help us keep everyone safe! 

Check in with the Jellyfish stewards when you arrive at the show.

We will also have some tickets on the day, but we need to limit numbers and make sure we all stay safe. So please reserve in advance if you can.

We’re really delighted to be bringing live performances to Nottingham. Here’s what we’re doing to make sure we can do this safely:

Social distancing:   

The shows are outside but we still need to make sure everyone is safe so we will ask you to socially distance.  Bring a blanket to sit on if you like!  Our stewards will be there to help you find a place to sit with your household bubble.

NHS Check and Trace: 

We’ll ask you to scan the NHS Test and Trace QR code.  If you can’t scan it, please leave your name and contact number with our stewards.

Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity goes virtual for 2021


Despite every challenge, the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity is back this February with a packed programme of events and activities accessible for all the family. With lots of activities online and a super interactive magazine, the Festival has adapted to restrictions on live events with invention and imagination.


The sixth Festival of Science and Curiosity runs between 8th-17th February across the city and county, including in your classroom and at home in your living room, kitchen and backyard.


Among the highlights is Wollaton Watch, an hour-long programme about nature and wildlife going out on NottsTV every evening at 4.00pm from Monday 8th February. With young people and volunteers sharing nature in their neighbourhood across Nottinghamshire, Wollaton Watch features hedgehogs, deer and even an item on ‘left-handed’ snails.


Also available across the city and county is the FOSAC Magazine with lots of family friendly articles and activities with the key message that science is part of our everyday lives.


With projects for schools, YouTube careers Q&As, and a full programme of online talks and workshops, there is something for everyone in this year’s Festival. Full details are online at and follow the Festival on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok @NottsFOSAC #CuriousNotts
