    Autism Friendly Events & Venues in Nottingham

    With a more thorough understanding of special needs on the rise, autism friendly events have begun to be implemented throughout the UK, allowing those on the autism spectrum, along with their carers and families, to enjoy and take part in regular events and attractions.

    Often providing ‘early bird’ or late night openings, participating venues can allow those with autism or additional requirements to enjoy their events and attractions in a more relaxed setting. These tailored events can include limited number of visitors, toned down lighting, and less noise to reduce over stimulation, along with chill-out spaces to relax in if things get a little overwhelming.

    Lunch at Bread and Bitter

    Castle Rock Brewery is a Nottinghamshire institution, famed for its award-winning beers and fantastic pubs. With 14 pubs across the county, and many more serving its locally made beers and ales, there are plenty of opportunities to sample their top tipples. We were recently invited to try some of the food at one of their pubs, the Bread and Bitter, where we were pleased to learn that this real ale pub is as much about the food as it is about the beer.

    On a Friday in February we took a table in the conservatory area of the pub, a sun-trap on this cold but bright winters day. Dining with children

    Spring Encounters in Nottinghamshire

    “There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more.”
    – Lord Byron

    The snowdrops have emerged, lambing season has begun and the daffodils are slowly waking up to Spring. Pushing through the dregs of winter, the sun has teased us over the past few weeks, unleashing random bursts of sunshine and giving us that addictive energy which makes us look to the summer months ahead.

    You might have warmer climes on the mind, but in the meantime there are

    Nottinghamshire Attractions in The Museum + Heritage Awards

    Fun and Games at The National Videogame Arcade

    Videogames are a pastime that easily splits opinion. Often hailed in the media as advocating negative behaviour, the focus on the beneficial aspects of gaming as a new way to learn, develop skills and have fun can be very much overlooked.

    Along with its annual festival Game City, The National Videogame Arcade in Hockley is here to change that. As the world’s first centre to celebrate and explore video game culture, since opening in March 2015 The NVA has firmly championed the role of gaming in society, aiming to bring gaming to a wider audience and offer an exciting space to play games, which is fun, educational and

    Lunch at the Adam’s Restaurant

    In the heart of Nottingham’s Lace Market you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to eateries and places to hang out. It’s also a hub for shops, private companies and students attending the local college. Standing out from the sea of buildings is the historic Adam’s Building, in the past the lace headquarter and now a hub for education.  The building is the largest and finest example of a Victorian lace warehouse to survive in the country, and is one of Nottingham’s finest treasures.

    Last week we were invited to sample lunch at the Adam’s Restaurant, run by New College Nottingham staff and students and located in the Adam’s Building. Read on
