Since 1888 there have been Festivals in Wollaton Park. The University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, the Graces Guide website and the Nottingham Evening Post have all kinds of records of Nottingham events ranging from Royal Agricultural Shows in Wollaton Park 1888, 1915 and 1928 to Festivals on the Embankment with The Barnum and Bailey Circus and Jazz and Rock Festies in the 1960s at the Football Ground(s?). All designed for some Summer Fun and excitement!
In the 70s Wollaton Park hosted the Nottingham Festivals with Jousting Balloon Rides and Military exhibitions, and in the 90s we had the Heineken Music Festies which were huge fun! So rain or shine everyone is ready to party!
2016 again has the Splendour Music Festie loved by Nottingham folk and its a super lineup, everything is ready (looks that way) all thats needed now is a long sunshiny summer’s day and not a deluge like the Madness and Pogues year! The forecast is Sunshine with maybe a shower in the afternoon:- fingers crossed!
Here’s a google link with pics from the past!
