Memories shared to celebrate 50 years of innovative mental health support. 


50 Years of Middle Street

Nottingham Central Library is currently working with Nottingham Trent University to host their National Heritage Lottery funded project exhibition ‘Fifty Years of Middle Street Resource Centre’.

Middle Street Resource Centre in Beeston is a community centre at the forefront of innovation in mental health care. The Centre has, and continues to be, much valued by the wider Nottingham Community. This project has worked to explore, record and share the Centre’s 50 year history.

In addition to the exhibition, on display in the reception area of the Central Library until 20th January 2024, we are pleased to be hosting a series of free events to explore the mental health and healhcare.
