Exhibition and Building Tours for Groups

Nottingham Contemporary is part of the local community; we are working to ensure everyone has opportunities to visit, explore and enjoy our activities. We welcome groups from schools, colleges, universities and community collectives to engage in our inspiring, educational and social activities. We offer self-led activities which can be used in our galleries, free activities with community groups and private low-cost tours.

Exhibition Tours

Explore the galleries with our friendly gallery assistants as they guide your group through the current exhibition. You can discuss the artworks, share your opinions and get answers to any burning questions the works and themes inspire in you. Particularly recommended for people new to the gallery or with a particular interest in the current exhibition.

Building Tours

Enjoy a building tour led by our knowledgeable staff team to discover the history of Nottingham and Nottingham Contemporary whilst exploring behind-the-scenes of the gallery. Clad in lace patterned concrete, Nottingham Contemporary's RIBA Award-winning, green and gold building is an iconic feature of the city's skyline. The ambitious structure cascades down the side of a sandstone cliff revealing a cavernous interior where far more is happening than meets the outside eye. Particularly recommended for anyone with a keen interest in architecture, design or the history of Nottingham.
