    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.

    Enjoy a match day experience at Meadow Lane, the home of Notts County FC

    Those who know me will be well aware of where my passion lies. I’ve been a Notts County supporter all my life (as it states at the foot of this blog) and it’s a club that is very close to my heart so to finally be able to write a blog on the club is a great feeling. Now I write about the club and its history, and to a certain extent I will touch upon that. However, the purpose of this blog is to talk about Notts County Football Club as a tourist attraction – and the fact that it is a brand of which everyone in Nottinghamshire should
