Sobar is a pleasant, contemporary cafe-bar-restaurant in the heart of the Nottingham city centre. It's alcohol free. It's very centrally located, just a two minute walk along Friar Lane from the Old Market Square (which is the hub of the Nottingham city centre, for those who aren't familiar with the city).

Sobar is close to bus and tram stops, and it is a short walk from the rail station. There is convenient parking nearby. (For parking details see below.)

Parking Located Close To Our Meeting

The best local parking is to be found on Castle Road, off Castle Boulevard. The parking available here is on-street - in the evening it's just £1 in the meter...and it's only a two minute walk away from our venue! Plus, there are normally plenty of spaces.

There are several car parks in the Nottingham city centre, although these can be pricey. The cheapest is usually the one at the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre (approximately a 5 to 7 minute walk away). For a map showing the car parks in the city centre area Click Here

About The Group

We meet each week - usually on a Thursday in the evening - to learn about Mindfulness and to explore Mindfulness techniques, particularly different methods of Mindful meditation.

These weekly meetings contain a mix of different elements, all of which are designed to deepen our understanding and experience of Mindfulness in a gentle, uncomplicated and easy-to-understand way. 

Nottingham Mindfulness Group is a local group for any-one interested in Mindfulness, either as a form of spiritual practice or as a practical technique for living a better, calmer, more focussed and more productive life.

We hold regular, weekly meetings which offer (in a friendly, relaxed and informal atmosphere) the opportunity to learn about Mindfulness, to try-out some Mindfulness techniques and methods of Mindfulness meditation, plus the chance to meet and get to know other people who are interested in Mindfulness, or in meditation in general.

Our weekly meetings include:

  • talks by guest speakers
  • periods of group meditation
  • regular film or video presentations
  • information about Mindfulness events, classes and courses that are happening locally
  • the opportunity to get to know other members of the group in an easy, relaxed way over refreshments

All are welcome and membership is free

Our meetings are very friendly, casual and "open" - they provide an opportunity to encounter Mindfulness in an easy and straightforward way.

Meetings take place every week on Thursday evening at Sobar on Friar Lane from 7pm to approximately 8:45pm.

There is a small admission charge to help cover room hire and other costs - £5 for waged and £3 for unwaged/concessions. Refreshments are available.

For more information or to get in touch 

The Nottingham Mindfulness Group uses Mindfulness techniques drawn from many different, respected sources and it is aligned to no one school,
tradition or branch of Mindfulness practice, however a key inspiration and reference point for our activities is the teaching and work of
Thích Nhất Hạnh and the Plumb Village Mindfulness Community.
