Local Events

Developed by local organisations, Nottingham Year of Stories is a year-long celebration during 2023 to encourage everyone in Nottingham to enjoy creating, sharing and exploring stories.

Building on existing networks, over 10 partner organisations, including Nottingham City Council, Nottingham City Libraries, Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, Read On Nottingham, ChallenNGe Nottingham, and both universities, will deliver a diverse range of activities, events and projects to connect and celebrate Nottingham’s people, their stories and the power of storytelling in all forms – from memories to literature, rhymes to dance, and poetry to film.

During 2023, Nottingham’s new Central Library, based next to the new Broadmarsh car park and bus station, will open its doors to the public, which will be the start of a new chapter for Nottingham and will be celebrated across the city with a whole Year of Stories and storytelling.

Events will be taking place in libraries across Nottingham, including multi-lingual storytelling events for families and it would be great if your organisation could hold your own events and activities during 2023 to take part! 

There is information on holding your own event, supported with additional information on Social Media Guidelines.
