Nottingham UNESCO CIty of Literature is running a new competition, Letters of Solidarity. They want you to write a letter to someone or something about lockdown. Interested? Why not join a workshop to help you on Saturday 12th September 2020 at 10.00 am for TWO HOURS.

They get that writing a letter is different from a poem or a short story or a script, so they want to help you write the best letter you can by putting on these workshops. You need to sign up to it here so they can send you the Zoom link. They have filled half of the places, so don’t wait!

The best 50 letters we receive will be published in a new anthology they’re launching in February 2021, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity! If you have any questions, contact or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram @NottmCityOfLit.


What's it all about

From the caves to the palace to Brewhouse Yard, the Nottingham Castle project will transform the entire site, re-establishing it as a focal point for civic pride and creating a world-class cultural destination at the heart of a regenerated Castle Quarter.

Discover the story of Medieval Nottingham and the city’s famous outlaw or the turbulent moments of riot and rebellion in its past. Explore the visual arts and heritage crafts of our creative city in newly refurbished galleries, including our new terrace gallery for internationally renowned touring work. Investigate the trails around the Castle’s grounds or go on an underground adventure in the caves.

Join us on your Nottingham Castle adventure from February 2021.
