Wollaton Arts Festival: Thurs 14th - Sun 17th July (Wollaton Park, Nottingham)
The first Wollaton Arts Festival, a brand new event by and for the people of Wollaton, will take place this weekend.
The festival will celebrate the vibrant local community in Wollaton, with free events for everyone to take part in. It’ll include events such as a ‘Big Picnic’ in Wollaton Park on Sunday 17 July.

Wollaton Arts Festival Bake Off - 16 July - Enter a showstopping cake in one of two categories, under 18 and over 18
Wollaton Big Picnic - 17 July - A chance to enjoy food and drink, live music and entertainment with other local people. There'll also be free storytelling and activities for children, creative workshops, tours, walks and exhibitions.
I want to encourage everyone living and working in Wollaton to join us at the first Wollaton Arts Festival.
We need you to make the event a success and hopefully an annual event in Wollaton’s calendar.”

Police are appealing for help to find an 82-year-old man who has gone missing from his Wolverhampton home.
Clarence Roberts was last seen in the early hours of Sunday morning. The 82-year-old suffers with dementia and police believe he may try to use public transport to travel towards Birmingham Airport.
He is described as black, 5ft 6ins tall, medium build, short grey hair, clean shaven, brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a grey checked suit, a white shirt and a hat. He also wears glasses.
We’re really concerned for Clarence as he can easily become confused and disorientated.
If you think you’ve seen him today, please call Wolverhampton Police as soon as possible on 101.
