It features live music from local bands and performers on a main stage in the park and acoustic acts in an old bakery building opposite. There’s a spoken word stage in a back garden, a cafe out on the street and loads of craft stalls from local producers. You can find art on the railings around the park and take part in a music and dance procession around the local streets. There are activities for children, including a mini-cinema in a garage and a chill out tent.
The festival has a foody theme, bread to be precise, because it used to be made around these parts in large quantities. Not just the white sliced stuff, but a local speciality – pyclets – were produced in a small specialist bakery opposite the park for many years. Bread is also common to the many nationalities and cultures that have made their homes around this part of Nottingham – it is indeed the stuff of life.
