News: Explore the his­to­ry of our Adams Build­ing this September!

Not only is our Adams Build­ing home to many of our cours­es – includ­ing art, design and fash­ion, but it’s steeped in rich history. 

The his­to­ry of our Adams Build­ing, usu­al­ly reserved for our staff and stu­dents, is being opened up to the pub­lic on Sat­ur­day 10th September!

Did you know…

    • Our Adams Build­ing Cam­pus is Grade II listed.
    • It was con­struct­ed between 1852 and 1875 for Adams and Page who were lace makers.
    • It’s the largest build­ing in Nottingham’s Lace Market!
    • Many orig­i­nal fea­tures still exist such as orig­i­nal wood­en beams, spi­ral stone stair­cas­es, stained glass win­dows and lilac walls – the colour the work­shops would have been back in the 1800’s.
    • The upper floors boast fan­tas­tic views across the city cen­tre – light and airy rooms were need­ed to ensure fac­to­ry work­ers got as much light as pos­si­ble! These fea­tures are still here to this day and now house lots of cre­ative spaces for our students.

    The Adams Build­ing isn’t typ­i­cal­ly open to the pub­lic, mean­ing the rich his­to­ry and orig­i­nal fea­tures are usu­al­ly reserved for our stu­dents and staff; how­ev­er this Sep­tem­ber, Her­itage Open Days are giv­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic the chance to come along and tour our fan­tas­tic build­ing on Sat­ur­day 10th September.
