One of the biggest events of this year's calendar in the Market Square Nottingham is set to open on Friday 27th September. This is a three day family festival not to be missed! 

The event, which is in aid of The Children's Air Ambualnce (TCAA), will opened Friday 27th at 10am by the Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Special Projects Manager of TCAA Daniel Routt, Director Gary Allen along with special guests The Nottingham Panthers and Robin Hood.

Fans will get the chance to meet the treble winning stars along with the three trophies; there will also be a hockey shoot out game where fans can test their skills against the players.

Over the weekend there will be some amazing local music talent on the stage every hour from 1pm to 6pm each day and 1pm to 4.30pm Sunday, all the local artists were provided by 'We are not from London' city based promoters.

There will be lots for Children to do at the event with the Mini Cinema showing films each day and entertainment provided by the awesome Bongo Bongo. The amazing Mad Science workshops will be on all weekend on stage from 11 - 12pm and their stall can also be found near the Brian Clough statue. Bongo Bongo will also be presenting a cheque to the Mayor on behalf of TCAA who will be raising vital funds at the show over the three days.

The concept is brilliant and showcases talent across the board that Nottingham has to offer whether it's arts and entertainment through to local catering. To have the Lord Mayor open the event is very special and we look forward to seeing you across the three days.
