First published in 1958, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning helped frame its cultural moment. It charts a year in the life of Arthur Seaton, machinist in the Raleigh cycle factory, and young urban rebel. The novel appeared at the time of a spate of accounts of urban working-class life by academics, playwrights, novelists and documentary filmmakers. Many were concerned with the emergence of a new working-class affluence and individualism. The end of post-war austerity also signaled the advent of a distinct youth culture; for the first time young people defined themselves outside of their parents’ culture, and had spending power, like never before, which they used on fashion, music and entertainment. The 1950s and 60s also witnessed the most radical urban re-housing programme in this country’s history that was to change British society irrevocably. Taking seminal moments from the book and film, the exhibition explores the depiction of these social changes in contemporary photography. Focusing in particular on working-class culture, it highlights the various approaches taken by a generation of photographers drawn to ‘the regions’ in an attempt to capture the authenticity of ‘ordinary lives’. The exhibition features a selection of never-before-exhibited stills from Reisz’s iconic film, much of which was shot on location in Nottingham, plus work by ‘Young Meteors’: John Bulmer, Graham Finlayson, Terence Donovan and Roger Mayne. Their works are complemented by that of other national photographers such as Maurice Broomfield and Shirley Baker, as well as an array of accomplished local amateurs. Drawing its material from Nottingham and the Midlands, as well as the Black Country and Manchester, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning captures the essence of Sillitoe’s world and a country at the point of profound cultural change.

Since the late 1960s, Stuart has become internationally known for a rich and diverse body of work stemming from her lifelong interest in the natural world and the cosmos. Working in drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installation and site-specific earthworks, she has pursued a subtle and responsive dialogue with nature, distinct from the epic gestures of American Land Art. Spanning the period from the late 1960s to the present day, the exhibition encompasses a characteristically varied and unconventional range of media, while highlighting Stuart’s major contribution to the practice of drawing. During the 1970s she became known for her monumental drawings made outdoors, where rolls of paper were smashed with rocks, stroked with earth, or rubbed with graphite until the characteristics of a given site became ingrained in their surfaces. At the Djanogly Art Gallery, these expansive scrolls are shown alongside a video documenting a 460-foot long drawing produced in this way. 10 Art - Djanogly Art Gallery Box office 0115 846 7777 Niagara Gorge Path Relocated 1975 Other works in the exhibition respond to the Nazca Lines, the Uffington White Horse and Mexican petroglyphs—pushing our understanding of drawing beyond the page. Expansive maps of real and imaginary landscapes form the backdrop to a selection of Stuart’s sculptural works and hand-made books, made with natural materials gathered on her travels. The exhibition concludes with Stuart’s recent photographic grids, expansive works which encapsulate the potent blend of ‘real history, imaginative history and natural history’ that has characterised her work for over forty years.

This exhibition complements the selection of film stills included in the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning exhibition.

Ashley Smart, its Museum Director, looks into the station’s role in bringing clean drinking water to the City of Nottingham. Thursday 14 February Global water stress, climate change and uncertainty 1.2 billion people currently live in water scarce regions of the globe. How will this change in the future? How much is climate change to blame for water stress? And how certain can we be about projections of water stress for the coming decades? Dr Simon Gosling of the School of Geography explores these questions within a global context. Wednesday 6 March Water journeys Dr Rachel Gomes of the Faculty of Engineering provides an introduction to the human interaction with the water cycle, and the treatment of used water. We are all water consumers but do we all know what happens to the water we use, and how does our behaviour as a water consumer impact on that water journey? Wednesday 13 March A year immersed in the water archives Sarah Colborne, Project Archivist, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the work involved in making accessible the backlog of previously uncatalogued water records held by Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham. Image: Floods in Nottingham, 1960. Courtesy of the Nottingham Post Group Friday 25 January – Sunday 19 May Weston Gallery Manuscripts and Special Collections Admission free Water! Pipes, Pumps, Floods and Drains in The University of Nottingham’s Water Archives Drought conditions or torrential rain affecting water supply always make headlines. Yet there is much more to the story of water. Our Victorian ancestors built an impressive network of pumping stations, water mains, reservoirs and sewerage pipes, much of which is still in use today, to improve sanitation and provide clean drinking water for all. Earlier generations cut drains to reclaim agricultural land, and built canals, weirs and locks to improve navigation. In the twentieth century, scientists and engineers worked to predict floods and construct flood defences. This exhibition focuses in particular on the city of Nottingham, and the work of the various authorities and public bodies charged with providing reliable water supply, sewerage and water treatment, and flood prevention schemes. It draws on original archives and photographs held by the University’s Department of Manuscripts and Special Collections. 16 Museum Box office 0115 846 7777 University of Nottingham Museum at Lakeside Archaeology NOW A series of talks and handling sessions that focuses on current archaeological work. These talks allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us as it is happening and include local, regional, national and international projects.

Unknown, Virtually: Nottingham's Sandstone Caves Wednesday 23 January 2013 Dr David Strange-Walker, Trent and Peak Archaeology Since 2010 staff from Trent & Peak Archaeology have been exploring, surveying and visualising Nottingham's 550 man-made sandstone caves. Some of these are well-known fixtures on the tourist trail but most of these hidden gems are little-known, privately owned, and hard to visit. In this talk we will find out how the caves have shaped Nottingham, and how the Nottingham Caves Survey is using the latest technology to bring these caves to a whole new virtual audience. Following the talk David Strange-Walker will demonstrate the surveying equipment in the Museum. The Hallaton Treasure: An Iron Age Mystery Wednesday 27 February Helen Sharpe, Leicestershire County Council Archaeology Officer The Hallaton Treasure is one of the most important archaeological discoveries ever made in the East Midlands. It comprises over 5000 Iron Age and Roman coins, one of the highest quality Roman cavalry helmets ever discovered in Europe, the remains of over 400 pigs and mysterious silver objects. The objects were buried at a native British shrine in the years surrounding the Roman invasion of Britain.

All poetry has a memorial aspect – the fixing of a moment, a place, the passing of a life. But this is remembering on a grand scale. This is a concentrated, intense, multi-tasking elegy. And it is written with a freshness to match Homer's own – as if each soldier had died on the day of writing. -Kate Kellaway in The Observer Presented as part of Nottingham’s first FESTIVAL OF WORDS (www.nottswords.org.uk) by University of Nottingham School of English and Lakeside Arts Centre Hetain Patel is a Sadlers Wells New Wave Associate Artist.

After more than twenty years, Tong Zheng returns from the States – to sell Wall Street. The China he finds is very different from the one he left behind. Who is the fascinating “shanghai beauty” he meets online? A strange love story in a virtual world – but a love story all the same. Border Crossings once again joins forces with China’s leading contemporary theatre, following the extraordinary Re-Orientations: Impressive, bold in ambition and fluid….

For more information visit www.dance4.co.uk TICKET DEAL* Running time: 55 minutes Suitable for all On Order and Anarchy Colette Sadler (UK) With live music and dance, this new work by choreographer Colette Sadler in collaboration with four dancers and two musicians starts with the idea ‘Composition means to build an instrument’ by composer Helmut Lachenmann and presents the audience with an abstract game based on unstable logic and shaped by the performers relationships. This work is not about representing a social or political system but rather about people trying to 'do' something together, negotiating the space between individual freedom and communality. 'On Order & Anarchy' follows 'Musical' a previous collaboration between the artist and Viennese composer Noid, also presented at Lakeside during the 2011 Nottdance festival. Co-produced by Dance4 Nottingham. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Supported by Haupt Stadt Kultur Fonds Germany in collaboration with SophienSaele Berlin. Additional support from Choreographic Futures (DanceBase Edinburgh and the Workroom Glasgow funded).

The carpet – originally a kind of grounding frame for the dance – becomes, variously, a prop, an outer skin, architecture. These shifts describe the negotiation of desire in a dancing figure approaching visibility, and connect with the material of a defining sculptural ground. This desire manifests itself as a changing temporal process, as complex and interwoven as the many patterns in the carpet. Gazing at this exquisitely designed living sculpture, you also feel your own body straining with Hassabi, and in the slow friction between these two views, mysterious emotions ignite. The Village Voice APNEA Rodrigo Sobarzo (Netherlands) Apnea: the temporary cessation of breathing Drawing on the iconography of sports divers and escape artists Rodrigo immortalises the human body. Pushing at the boundaries of the physical and of the human, he creates a visual and immersive experience of air and the act of breathing. Here Rodrigo translates the physical implications of submersion into the audience’s territory, their minds and inner bodies. Concept and performance Rodrigo Sobarzo; Lighting design Jan Fedinger.

Each is bound in a closed, protected world of their own. Nevertheless their encounters are inevitable. As the boundaries that separate the performers are crossed, their personal baggage falls apart and becomes exposed. 'Who is the fool? Us or them?' Both entertaining and thought-provoking, this work examines the fragile encounter between the human need to protect one's distinctiveness from destruction and a yearning for acceptance. This is a welcome return to Lakeside after their warmly received show in January 2012, Big Mouth/Covariance. Commissioned by Israel Festival 2011 and supported by Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Choreographers Association, Suzanne Dellal Centre and Adama.

With the men of Athens all serving in the forces, the women of the city can take no more. In secret, they meet with the enemy women and form a pact. The battle moves into the bedroom. No sex for the men - unless the women get peace. Lysistrata is the original battle of the sexes and its themes of feminism, power and politics are as relevant now as they were in ancient Greece. Lakeside and The Nottingham New Theatre are thrilled to be working on a first collaborative theatre project, marrying the talents of the University’s student-run theatre company with a professional team including direction, design, stage management, education and marketing.
