If you’re a fan of big hair, guitar solos and a famous yellow leather jacket; then Arnot Hill Park is the place to be on June 16 and 17.

The annual Arnold Carnival returns to Arnot hill park with a line-up including live music, dance, arts and crafts activities, a fun dog show, fun fair, BMX and skateboarding sessions, a memorial flypast and more.

The events kick off on Saturday 16 June with headliners THAT 80’S ROCK SHOW performing some of the biggest 80’s glam and hair-metal rock classics and power ballads from bands such as Def Leppard, Kiss, Whitesnake and many others.

Sunday’s headliners will be bringing the stadium rock to the park. We have performances from Queen tribute act Real Magic and Take That and Robbie Williams tribute Take@That. These aren’t just bands singing songs on the stage though; these are performers who work hard to recreate the harmonies and choreography of some of the nation’s best loved performers.

Along with performances from professional musicians, there will also be a variety of community music, dance groups, local school bands, choirs and solo artists performing over the weekend.

The carnival has more to offer besides music, with over 150 craft, charity and trade stalls and a dedicated food and drink court with a fully licensed bar. Children’s arts and crafts activity sessions will be hosted by Gedling Play Forum and a fun dog show will also be taking place over both days of the event.

The event is free to attend on both days with something for all the family to enjoy.
