[NOTTINGHAM] The Confetti Caves - #CaveCity Underground Festival - Saturday 12 May

12/5/18: Talks at 12 noon and 2pm

Description of event

Hear about the caves recently discovered under the Confetti site (Convent Street/ Lower Parliament Street corner). These caves - one believed to be medieval, and the other to have served the Woodlark Beerhouse (opened sometime before 1841) - were previously unknown. For the first time, Trent & Peak Archaeology archaeologists Joe and Laura, who worked on the site, will talk about the discovery of the caves, the artefacts (and beer!) found inside them, and their history. There will also be finds and photos from the caves to view and handle. Talks take place at 12 noon and 2pm and last around one hour, with the chance to see and handle finds and photos both before and afterwards. Venue: Newton Building, Nottingham Trent University, Goldsmith Street/ Burton Street corner, NG1 4BU. Please use the Burton Street entrance. Booking: Advance booking is required (£4, students/seniors/children £3). Book at yat.digitickets.co.uk or on 01904 615505.
