    Be a farmer for the day at White Post Farm

    Notts residents Ralph, Jackie and four-year-old Leo Thursfield paid a visit to White Post Farm. Find out what they thought in this guest blog written by Ralph . . . 

    Having received a personal recommendation and with a discerning, demanding four-year-old in our care, we set of for a day at White Post Farm.

    Situated north of the city of Nottingham, just off the A614 at Farnsfield, the journey was easy. There is ample free parking and the sign posting is really good, I wondered why we had never visited here before.

    Sherwood Forest Bus Tours: All aboard The Robin Hood Express!

    There’s something funny HAppening in NottingHAm

    The Nottingham Comedy Festival returns to the city on Friday. In today’s guest blog Elliott Bower, who has helped to organise the event, writes about some of the acts you can see this year. 

    Everyone likes to laugh. Statistics show that little kids laugh 400 times a day. But one study showed that grownups laugh only eleven and another said only four.

    Well we would like to change this stat in Nottingham for one week only.

    From Friday 19th September to Saturday 27th September the Nottingham Comedy Festival rolls back into town for its sixth year and it is better than ever.

    We have over 60 shows in 18 venues across Nottingham and Mansfield from
