Jubilee Bank Holiday Monday, June 3rd, is party day throughout the UK, and at the heart of the celebrations will be BBC Music Live, bringing the music to the party with an extensive programme of hundreds of free festivals, concerts and events, to which everyone is invited.

Nottinghamshire's no exception with plenty going on in the county.

Nottingham will be a key host with a BBC Music Live Stage in Market Square.

Nottingham City Council has linked up with BBC Radio Nottingham and BBC Music Live to bring hours of musical entertainment to Market Square on Saturday 1st, Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd June.
