“Nottingham’s improved ranking is a reflection of the efforts made by the City Council and NTU in particular to support the city’s creative economy and a mark of the increasing success of Nottingham’s creative businesses. It’s also a strong message to send to potential investors; Nottingham’s creative economy is on the up.”

Stephen Barker, CEO Creative Quarter
