 IN NORTH NOTTS ANNUAL EVENTS CALENDAR

Do you sometimes wish to plan your diary ahead but hate the idea of missing a particular local festival or special event?

Now you can plan around your favourite major annual events because they're all here!

In North Notts have put together the 'In North Notts Annual Events Calendar' listing all the main events that take place across our region throughout the whole year.

It's a handy and helpful condensed list of events which will be updated on an ongoing basis and available to everyone to use.

In North Notts Annual Events Calendar

The In North Notts Annual Events Calendar is your handy compact guide to the major events and annual events that take place across North Nottinghamshire throughout the year.

Just click on the event title below for further information. Past events are still listed (but without a link) which gives you a guide to the approximate date for next year. As soon as details about events are available we'll update them with a new link.

Missing Event?

We've worked hard to find the major events of the region but if your event is missing please add it to our What's On Events directory (it's easy to do and it's free) and we can then add it to the list below.  To add your event just select Register at the top of the page (or menu option if using a mobile) and follow the instructions.

If you spot any errors please let us know.

We hope you find the list useful in planning your personal or business diary, and if you organise events it should help you avoid a clash with other important local events.

For details about these major events and the thousands of other smaller events that are happening all around us visit our What's On Events Guide here.
