    Williams GB Gin Tasting at George’s Great British Kitchen

    Cocktails are truly the most opulent of beverages. Copious and delicious ingredients, exotic garnishes, precise measures and methods of mixing all add to the feeling you’re being treated to something savour rather than devour.

    When the lovely folks at George’s Great British Kitchen told us they were hosting a Williams GB Gin cocktail making and tasting night, I was seriously rather excited. Despite having never eaten at George’s I have heard some great things about the menu, and I was looking forward to experimenting with a delicious gin, rather than my usual simplistic formula of: Gin + Tonic + Ice.

    Exhibition Review: Reportrait at Nottingham Castle

    It is no wonder that portraiture has endured millennia as a favoured and endlessly fascinating form of art. We gather a multitude of information from observing a portrait, from mood and personality to age, status and era, building a narrative in our minds of the sitter and their story. And yet, there is much mystery in these images of people long gone, who are perhaps only remembered by this one fixed moment in time.

    Building on this already captivating art form, Reportrait exhibits the work of thirteen artists who each reimagine traditional portraiture, using sculpture, texture, photography, context or digital means. Transforming each image they not only add

    Madame Parboiled’s Historical Pub Tour

    Nottingham is a city steeped in history and its pubs are a living proof of that, they’re a tangible representation of England’s past, and celebration of life before us. To learn how to grow our appreciation for Nottingham’s historic pubs we ventured into a world of Madame Parboiled – the executioner’s wife who knows Nottingham and its pubs like a back of her hand.  Read on to find out what we thought about our experience at Madame’s Parboiled’s Historical Pub Tour.

    The idea of spending the evening with a medieval executioner’s wife may seem a little daunting to begin with, but Madame Parboiled certainly isn’t as dark as some

    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
