Nottingham - A Global Cultural Leader

About the event

In 2015 Nottingham was admitted to the ranks of only 20 cities worldwide which hold the prestigious status of UNESCO City of Literature. Arts organisations and individual artists joined forces with the city’s heritage sector, the universities and the City Council to support the city’s bid. Join the Nottingham Cultural Partnership to celebrate this achievement and learn more about our thriving and connected cultural offer. You will meet some of Nottingham's outstanding artists and hear from the newly appointed Director of UNESCO City of Literature, Sandeep Mahal. 


  • Sandeep Mahal (Director, Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature)
  • John Harvey (Author)
  • Debris Stevenson (Founder, Mouthy Poets)
  • Ling Peng and Sura Susso (Musicians)
