Traders and residents in Beeston are throwing a street party today.
It's in a bid to showcase the independent shops along a road that is closing for a year.
The closure is to allow major tram works to be completed as part of the Nottingham Tram network expansion.
Some business owners fear they could be forced to shut their doors because the road closure would decrease footfall. Today they hope to promote the area.
The event, between 11am and 4pm, will include street entertainment, face-painting and an outdoor stage for bands.
