Nottingham Contemporary is at the heart of Nottingham’s city centre in the historic Lace Market area. There are few more unique places to entertain, inspire and hold key corporate events.
Whether you are hosting clients, staff, partners or simply celebrating, our spaces for hire range from a full scale and fully equipped performance space ideal for conferences, lectures, or staff parties. To smaller and more intimate spaces that are perfect for meetings and informal gatherings.
Designed by the award-winning architects Caruso St John in 2009. Inspiration was taken from the surrounding Lace Market, specifically the bold, elegant design of the warehouses that serviced the city’s world famous trade in the 19th century. Its irregular structure was created by maximizing the use of the available land. The site is said to be oldest in the city – it was the site of a Saxon fort, a medieval Town Hall, and finally a late Victorian railway cutting. The steps at the side of the building have recreated a historic right of way.
At over 3,000 square metres, Nottingham Contemporary is one of the largest contemporary art centres in the UK. It has four galleries – lit by 132 skylights – a performance and film Space, a study, meeting room, shop and Café.Bar.Contemporary. The building appears larger on the inside than outside, since much of its north end is sunk into the sandstone cliff that runs the length of the city centre. At the same time, it is a remarkably open building: large windows offer direct views from the street into the galleries, shop, café and offices.Enquire online
