On the eve of opening, I’m delighted to be able to share with you an insight into the wonderful events happening across the city at Nottingham’s second festival of European art, theatre, dance, film and family fun – neat14.
We have teamed up with many organisations across the city to present lots of unusual and original festival experiences, some by regionally based artists, alongside theatre and dance from across Europe that is rarely if ever seen in this country.
For these 10 days the city will come to life, with theatre and performance from Croatia, Belarus, France, Ireland, Spain, Albania, Poland and Germany sharing the bill with work from Hyson Green, the Meadows and St Ann’s.
As well as performances there will also be talks, exhibitions, films and a programme of free events that will ensure this is a festival for all. neat14 will surprise and delight you in equal measure.
I look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham’s world class arts festival.
Artistic Director, Nottingham Playhouse
