    Win big and live it up like an #Outlaw in Nottingham this Christmas!

    Robin Hood – noble outlaw, altruistic rebel, man of the people…

    Cheese riots, luddite frame breakers, rebel writers, civil-war-mongerers – Nottinghamshire has been home to outlaws since its early days. We’ll admit we are a bit softer nowadays, and you’re not likely to get caught in an uprising, but the spirit of rebellion still runs deep. We invite you to come and discover a city packed with riveting history, legendary sport, exhilarating outdoor attractions and curious caves.

    BE ROBIN HOOD FOR THE DAY

    Forget those dull days of work experience in a fusty office – become an outlaw for the day and shadow our very own Robin Hood. As Robin’s

    Lucky escape at iLocked Nottingham

    Not known for my ability to extricate myself from tricky situations, I admit I was a bit apprehensive about being locked in a room for an hour. Five of us went to iLocked as a group booking for my daughter’s 21st birthday, I thought I should include something for the youngsters’.

    Marat met us and did a fabulous job of explaining the different options and what to expect. He was right with his advice on which room to choose – very helpful if you’ve not done anything like this before.

    Once ‘locked in’ the Mummy’s tomb we quickly set about trying to work out the clues and proceed to the next chambers.

    Family Fun for All at Clip’ n Climb’ Nottingham

    My daughter-in-law was looking for a venue for my grandson’s 6th birthday party.

    Clip n’ Climb fitted the bill perfectly – with 22, five and six year olds ready to burn off lots of energy the excitement and anticipation was high!

    Clip’ n Climb, didn’t disappoint! From the warm welcome, the informative and friendly safety briefing, to letting the little ones loose on the 26 obstacle courses including Jungle Vine, Sky Scraper, Spaghetti Junction, Lightning Crack and Stairway to Heaven, to name a few!

    The children had a great time scaling the walls, climbing to the top and being proud of their achievements. My grandson even braved the leap of faith.

    The food was amazing

    Pride and Prejudice at Nottingham Playhouse

    This brand new comic adaptation by a stand-up comedian Sara Pascoe with an original score from Emmy the Great and directed by Susannah Tresilian (Director of Posh in 2015) didn’t disappoint. We went to see it for ourselves this week so continue reading if you want to find out what we thought about it.

    Genevieve – Sara Pascoe isn’t a name that you would expect to find alongside the classic novel title, Pride and Prejudice, so when I heard of her new adaptation of the Jane Austen story, I was already intrigued. I expected that Sara Pascoe, being known for her comedic skills, writing and experience as an actress, would breathe fresh air into the 19th Century romance and I was not disappointed.

    Dinner at Cosmo Nottingham

    Everyone has days when they’re not sure what we fancy for dinner and on Wednesday last week that’s exactly how I felt after I left the office. I couldn’t make up my mind whether I felt like cooking and if I did, what I wanted to cook.

    After some deliberations me and my date decided to head to Cosmo knowing that we’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of fresh food under one roof. I’m a huge Japanese food fan and Cosmo is famous for their teppanyaki chefs, as well as a selection of delicious sushi. We were both excited to mix and match our favourite dishes from around the world.

    Without further ado, here is our top 5 photos taken by lovely people of Instagram.

    Exploring Sherwood Forest with the Ranger

    Nottingham’s Sherwood Forest is without doubt one of the most famous woodlands in the world, and we think that the legend of Robin Hood had something to do with its world-wide popularity.

    Nowadays there’s much going on in this legendary forest. You can enjoy its green surroundings in several different ways. You can stay the night at the Forest Holidays in one of their luxurious cabins with Jacuzzi, you can enjoy a segway ride, let your inner adventure junkie self out at Go Ape, or you join one of the resident Rangers and explore the wild side of Sherwood Forest. We chose to do the latter, and were really excited

    Sunday afternoon at the i-Jump Trampoline Park

    ~Blog written by our Events Manager – Rachel Stewart

    Sunday afternoons usually mean a day of rest with a roast dinner and time to catch up on last week’s TV.  However, having two children aged 9 and 11, this can sometimes mean a constant moan of “Mum, we’re bored”! Therefore, what better way for them to burn off some energy than spending an hour at i-Jump – the indoor trampoline centre in Mansfield.

    With two of their school friends joining them, we were booked into bounce at 1 pm.  All the relevant waivers were easily completed on-line and once we got there, the checking in procedure was simple.
