Well, what can we say except a big thank you to everyone who attended the first Nottingham World Music Festival on Saturday 5th September which took place on Sneinton Market Square from 2pm until 9.15pm.
Everything ran on time (near enough), the rain stayed away and the people came from near and far to fill Sneinton Market Square with the most people it has ever seen, approximate numbers from the Sneinton Community Traders who manage the square were 550 people at the peak and an estimate of 2K passed through between 2-9pm.
It was so lovely and heart-warming to see so many people from different backgrounds uniting together to celebrate local music, enjoying the vibes, the space, supporting the stalls, the bar and championing multiculturalism in our great city of Nottingham.
Most of all this event was able to celebrate ‘community’ and put on a free festival for everyone to embrace and enjoy, especially those who live in the Saint Anns, Sneinton and Hockley areas who may have not been able to enjoy or afford to come to this festival if it was a paid event.
Nothing would have been possible without community support and all our funders & sponsors so a big thank you to Fast Graphics, Awards for All, People’s Health Trust (Nomad consultation table), Icanparty and Team Nomad.
Here are some images from the day & night
Have a great day and see you next year!
