Welcome to Neat16 – a festival for everyone celebrating the extraordinary cultural life of Nottingham – from our amazing spaces and events to our status as a UNESCO City of Literature.

Neat16 promises to be fascinating, entertaining, sometimes challenging and always uplifting. It will showcase the best of every art-form and offering you a remarkable choice – new writing or re-imagined classics, grand opera or contemporary art, new talent or old masters, hip-hop or household names.

We can’t wait to give you that tantalising choice in a city that brings culture alive, and inspires great creativity.
