Notttingham's annual carnival took place at the city's Forest Recreation Ground on July 3rd and 4th with a procession of dancers and floats from the castle on Sunday 4th. The parade was a well attended event with the warm weather encouraging large crowds along the route, through Radford and Hyson Green.
The event was well attended and a major success, although the controversial choice of prominent homophobe Beenie Man may have attracted some negative publicity.
