Music scores and sets of plays

Leicester music and drama stock has been transferred to the new regional service - Nottingham Performing Arts Library Service [NPALS].
This new service will support amateur and professional music and drama groups by lending printed music and drama sets.

Nottingham and Leicester city councils have worked together to combine their drama and music collections to offer a much bigger and better service.

This new regional Performing Arts Service will be run by Nottingham City Council from Radford-Lenton Library and will serve Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
