A new community and commercial hub has launched as part of the Trent Basin development. The Trent Basin Makers Yard is to be a new home and incubator hub for local artists, makers and service providers with a strong focus on culture, health and wellbeing.

Life News

“We have seen the residents at Trent Basin establish and instil this new neighbourhood with a very strong sense of place and identity – very much with an independent energy. At Blueprint we wanted to extend this sense of place and create a new destination for the makers, and manufacturers and artists in the area, where social enterprises can be supported and nurtured, and attract those practitioners that promote health and wellbeing. The vision is to reimagine, restore and breathe new life into this ex-industrial site.”

“I will soon be moving on from One Thoresby Street and am currently evolving a new offering at The Trent Basin Makers Yard to include a pioneering new creative collaboration and artistic fabrication base as well as an events hub for the East Midlands with national impact. I could not be more pleased to be a founding partner of this new project that has such potential for the city.”
