Street Art Festival 2018

August 6th 2018

by Surface Gallery

This Summer at Surface Gallery sees the return of the most anarchic, the most spectacular show in town: the Nottingham Street Art Festival. This hugely popular exhibition supports and promotes Nottingham’s vibrant alternative art scene by showcasing some of today’s best local talent. As if deviant angels and rigid digits weren’t enough to grab your fancy, this year the exhibition will again occupy our three-story building from top to bottom—including our alternative artspace, Le Loovre.
