    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,

    Taking a Tour of Trent Bridge

    Nottingham was recently named as VisitEngland’s Home of Sport, following a nationwide public vote, and Trent Bridge cricket stadium is undoubtedly one of the city’s sporting highlights. As a regular host of high quality, international sport – and one of cricket’s most storied venues, it’s an iconic gem in Nottinghamshire’s crown.

    Standing in West Bridgford, overlooking the tranquil river, Trent Bridge was the venue for a brutal assault from Nottinghamshire’s own Stuart Broad last summer, when his viscous bowling skittled the Australians for just 60 runs – helping to ensure that England won the Ashes at Trent Bridge for the first time in the world’s third oldest test venue’s history

    Enjoying a ‘Super Lunch’ at Jamie’s Italian

    Good old Jamie. Not content with happily bouncing around the kitchen on our televisions, producing fail-safe Christmas presents in the form of colourful cookery books, and saving our children from the perils of turkey twizzlers – he’s also put together a successful chain of quality Italian restaurants!

    I’d never been to a Jamie’s Italian before and, if I’m honest, I was a little unsure about what the experience was going to be like. I was half expecting the walls to be plastered with photographs of the cheeky chef, and for there to be a little too much focus on the celebrity side of things.

    So it was a great relief to walk inside and discover a subtle, tastefully decorated restaurant – with plenty

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
