Green Light in the City, a new pop-up collaborative space for conversations and creativity around climate change, has opened on Bridlesmith Gate.
This exciting new project is delivered by a broad-ranging partnership involving both of Nottingham’s Universities, Nottingham City Council’s Carbon Neutral Nottingham 2028 team, and local education and arts organisations and charities including ChalleNGe, Ignite!, and Green Hustle. We hope the space will provide an exciting opportunity for members of the public to get helpful information and share ideas about the city’s green future.
Green Light in the City takes over the former Tokenhouse gift shop on Bridlesmith Gate up until February and is open from 1pm to 4pm, Thursday to Sunday. Full of creative activities, curious installations, stories of hope and a relaxed reading corner, the pop-up is intended to provide a welcoming space for learning and fun. It’s completely free, and open to all ages and groups - just walk in!
