Why not join us for lunch at 1 o’clock? Two courses for £9.00 but advance booking is essential on 0115 950 0411. And please notify the Albert Hall if you are unable to come for lunch when you have already booked it.

Location. The Albert Hall is situated on North Circus Street, opposite St Barnabas RC Cathedral and just round the corner from the Nottingham Playhouse [map].

Parking. Sunday on-street parking in the Albert Hall area is simple and cheap. Provided you park in Zone 2 or Zone 3 (marked Z2 or Z3 on indicator posts) you can have unlimited parking for £1. However neither the Binns Organ Trust nor the Albert Hall can be held responsible if you incur a fine, so you must check the meter to see that you are in the correct zone and are paying the correct fee. (This information is correct at the time of writing). Further information can be found at

If you prefer (or need) to use a multi-storey car park, it may be possible to obtain a reduction if you use the St James’s Street or Mount Street car parks. Simply ask at the Albert Hall for a supplementary ticket which, presented with your car park ticket on exit, will – depending on the length of your stay – ensure you’re charged at a lower rate.
