The Culture Show’s Guide To Hockley

17th June 2013

The Hockley Village in the City Centre is a unique and incredibly diverse area of Nottingham. Many people are unaware of its existence, or have strolled through without fully realising what’s around them.
The Culture Show decided to take to the streets of Hockley to discover this area for ourselves.

A major part of our trip was sampling food from many different cafés and tea shops! We visited ‘Homemade’, a delicious and independent café which serves fresh food daily. The café can be hired out for special occasions, as well as make made-to-order cakes!

‘Lee Rosy’s Tea Room’ is situated right opposite the Broadway Cinema and serves many different types of tea, many sourced directly from the seller. The café can also be hired out for many different events, and was even used by The Nottingham New Theatre’s Uncut Season as a space for one of their plays.

The ‘Jam Café’ is a multi-purpose venue and moves from being a fantastic restaurant during the day, to a haven for new bands in the evening. The café hosts live gigs almost every night.

At the centre of Hockley is the Broadway Cinema, an independent art house cinema boasting mainstream and alternative films. The Broadway was the site of the premiere of ‘Pulp Fiction’ as Quentin Tarantino was a huge fan of the cinema’s horror marathons.
