    East is East at Nottingham Playhouse ★★★★★

    Nottingham Playhouse welcomed the brand new production of this Olivier Award-winning comedy on 25th May, and it’s quickly become a sensation among those who’ve seen it.

    Chip shop owner George has his work cut out as head of the Khan household. Back in George’s homeland, Pakistan, a father rules the house; but in 1970s Salford, as Britain evolves and rebels, his teenage children are proving quite the challenge.

    Read on to find out what we thought about our experience at a performance of East is East last week.

    Linda – A delightful evening was spent watching the cast of East is East perform to a packed audience at Nottingham Playhouse. Each and every member of the cast

    Win Tickets to Tea With Oscar Wilde at Rufford Abbey!

    Set in 150 acres of stately parkland, Rufford Abbey is just one of Nottinghamshire’s many beautiful country estates. Dating back a humongous 870 years, the site began as a Cistercian abbey, the remains of which are some of the best preserved in the country. In 1536 the monastery was dissolved and over the next five centuries the estate passed through the hands of the aristocracy with demolition, conversions and additions made to become the country house we know today.

    In 1851 the abbey was the subject of a popular 19th century ballad Rufford Park Poachers which, telling the true story of a gang of hunters, had similar

    Divine Desserts at Griddle & Shake

    Knowing the time and thought that the lovely folks at Griddle & Shake put into their menu, we couldn’t possibly refuse when they asked us to come and try out the range of new desserts they’ve concocted… Here are our thoughts from a very tasty afternoon.
