Happy Birthday to The Malt Cross!

The Malt Cross on St James's Street is gearing up to celebrate 140 years in our great city centre, and boy oh boy do they have a festival planned to let their hair down!

In October 1877 the Malt Cross music hall was finished just in time for Goose Fair’s arrival in old Market Square after a quick six month construction. On opening night the quadrille band of the Royal Alhambra provided the evening’s entertainment and an incredible live music venue in Nottingham’s history was born.

140 years later sees the Malt Cross Bar and Kitchen commemorating this occasion with a weekend long, intimate music festival featuring Nottingham’s very best local live music talent, its buzzing record spinning scene and all things craft beer. Join in the festival atmosphere with a street food menu of burgers, hot dogs and wings on Friday and Saturday before a chilled out Sunday with Nottingham Jazz Jam’s monthly session from the house band and special guest guitarist Nik Svarc.
