    Something New is Brewing for Coffee Lovers in Notts

    Coffee fanatics in Nottingham will be all too familiar with the delicious aromas and smooth coffees of 200° Degrees Coffee Shop, an always busy and bustling cafe just off Old Market Square.

    Celebrating Nottingham’s Most Popular Attractions With Animated GIFs

    A series of ten fun animations, which celebrate some of Nottinghamshire’s best-loved institutions, have been spreading like wildfire across social media. Featuring references to everything from Batman’s home at Wollaton Hall to the selfie-magnet that is the famous Robin Hood statue – they celebrate all that’s great about our county.

    In this special guest post for Experience Nottinghamshire, Lydia from Skeleton – the team behind the GIFs – explains what motivated them to pay their quirky tribute to Notts:

    Wollaton Hall, with its grand Elizabethan front and rolling deer park.

    Canalside Chuckles at the Glee Club Nottingham

    After a long week, a trip to the Glee Club Nottingham seemed like the perfect way to start the weekend, promising food, fun and plenty of laughs of a Friday evening.

    Located an easy walk from Nottingham’s railway station, on the banks of the canal, this well respected comedy and music hub is nestled inside the spacious interior of the former British Waterways Building – meaning there’s plenty of room inside to spread out and grab a drink or a bite to eat, before the main entertainment gets going.

    I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from the actual comedy. My only previous experience of this type of event was a grubby,
