    Raise a glass to the Robin Hood and Little John

    An historic pub, which draws on Nottinghamshire’s brewing heritage while celebrating the micro breweries of today, opened its doors to the public this week.

    On Thursday evening, swarms of people descended on the newly-launched Robin Hood and Little John in Arnold, just north of the city, to see the transformation and sample an ale or two.

    Well-wishers leave flowers for the team.

    The Robin Hood and Little John, which is a joint venture between the Hucknall-based Lincoln Green Brewing Company and Everards, provides a showcase for Lincoln Green ales, as well as other real ales, real cider, craft beer, wine and spirits. The pub dates back to the 17th century

    Royal Concert Hall aims to get bums on new seats

    32 years ago, the Royal Concert Hall was first constructed and became one of the finest entertainment venues in the city of Nottingham and the UK. The seating installed in the building was fitted by Race Furniture, a company based in Gloucestershire. Naturally they take much pride in their work and the seats stood the test of time with countless performers coming and going over those 32 years. Having sat in them myself many a time, I can vouch for the fact that the Royal Concert Hall is one of the best places to sit and watch a show and indeed one of the most comfortable.

    History is revealed at the Malt Cross

    Nottingham’s Malt Cross may be familiar to many of you who have been out and about in the city centre for a light ale or a glass of wine. It’s an old music hall that’s taken on a new identity in recent times, but has still maintained its tradition of hosting live music to entertain its guests.

    As a venue, there really is nowhere like it and it’s currently undergoing some major work to re-vamp the existing ground floor and upper level that was already accessible to the public. However, below the ground floor, secrets have been lying in wait for decades and centuries – and they are now being unearthed
