About STREAM PARK

STREAM PARK is an interactive digital events platform partnered with the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham, Live Cinema UK and Oxfam GB to explore a hybrid of online and in-person immersive events through by Horizon Digital Economy Research.
It was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling events to take place online at interactive digital parks, venues and worlds, starting with UPLOAD Virtual Festival - a benefit arts festival set up to raise funds and awareness of various arts organisations across Nottinghamshire. The festival, hosted by BBC Radio Nottingham presenters and endorsed by celebrities including Imelda Staunton CBE took place in June 2020. 157 acts and organisations took part in the festival which welcomed 3227 visitors across 480 locations worldwide. STREAM PARK has since successfully hosted many events including a National Woodland Trust festival in November 2020 which the Trust described as the “biggest virtual celebration of woods and trees the UK has ever seen”; and An Inspired Christmas Concert in December 2020 in association with Inspire: Culture Learning and Libraries, Nottingham’s Theatre Royal Concert Hall and the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain. County Council Chairman Stuart Wallace said, “The concert was a great way to continue the activities we enjoy in a safe way from home”. Visit our events page to find out more about our events.
