Welcome to Beeston

We are updating our business directory and welcome information about any local business that we should include or delete. We do not handle bookings for market stalls.

The Let’s Go To Beeston website with Facebook and Twitter is now managed by volunteers based at the Middle Street Resource Centre. Our prime motivation is to provide information about Beeston whilst promoting social inclusion, which encourages health and wellbeing. The area we cover is therefore not defined by postcodes or geography, but rather by this ethos.

Beeston has a vibrant town centre which  is on the outskirts of Nottingham and prides itself on its mix of independent businesses as well as its more well-known retail outlets.  Beeston has a wealth of cultural interests and events including Oxjam, arts and community groups, voluntary organisations and a population invested in building a thriving community.  Beeston is also the nearest town to the University of Nottingham which is in walking distance.

Please use the headings above to navigate around the site, where you will find information about what is available in the area and events that are taking place. Please contact us via the Find and Contact Us tab above if you have information or suggestions for how we can improve this site.
