    Get Ready for Light Night 2017!

    This Friday, for the 10th consecutive year, Nottingham will be all aglow as one of our favourite events lights up the city with glowing decorations and vivid light displays.

    Light Night is back for 2017, and this year there will be a dramatic new centrepiece to the celebrations, with Nottingham’s answer to the London Eye having arrived in the city. The Wheel of Nottingham can already be seen glowing beside The Council House’s illuminated dome in Old Market Square, with its 75,000 bulbs putting on a dazzling display.

    A Year in the Saddle – Interview with Nottingham’s World Record Breaker

    With Christmas now a distant memory, we’ve reached the time of year when New Year Resolutions are tested, and the best of intentions fall by the wayside. If you ever needed a little inspiration to get outdoors and be a bit more active, it’d be hard to find a better role model than Kajsa Tylén.

    For the last year, this Nottingham resident has been quietly making history, taking to her saddle every day in a bid to break a 77-year-old Guinness World Record, by cycling 50,000 km in a single year.

    Setting out with Billie Fleming’s extraordinary record – set back in 1938 – in her sights, Kajsa cycled through wind, rain and

    Walking Nottingham’s Canals

    As a new year begins, many of us are facing up to the fact that we may have revelled a little too much over the festive period and that it’s time to put December’s celebrations – and all of those extra pigs in blankets, turkey cobs and Christmas tipples – behind us.

    With health on everyone’s mind at the moment, what better way to see in a fresh start to 2017 than by getting outside and exploring one of Nottingham’s lesser known treasures – its canal!

    I’d love to say that a desire to get outdoors and get active was what motivated myself and my girlfriend to embark on an epic 15 mile

    Lunch at the Crafty Crow

    On a typical Sunday, the cobbled street that runs alongside the steep rise up to Nottingham Castle is always bustling with visitors posing for snaps with the Robin Hood Statue, or heading into the castle to admire the gardens, delve into the caves, or browse the art exhibitions contained inside.

    There’s a lot to do in this part of town, so it’s useful that there are plenty of spots to stop for a relaxing drink or a bite to eat. On this particular Sunday – which was particularly bustling as it was also a Heritage Open Day – we went along to sample the menu at the Crafty Crow.

    Few things make life worth living more than a good pizza – so when offered the chance to go and try out the pizzas at Rocket at Saltwater, I jumped at the chance to grab a slice of the action.
