    We Dig The Castle: Unearthing Nottingham’s Archaeological Secrets

    For centuries, there has existed a castle on that craggy hill overlooking Nottingham. Throughout the past 1,000 years, different structures have come and gone, from robust medieval forts with familiar motte-and-bailey designs, to the smart ducal palace we know today, each reflecting their times and telling a dramatic story of its own.

    We are quite familiar with the astonishing network of caves beneath our city, but what of the more subtle secrets that lie beneath the earth? To discover more about Nottingham’s forgotten history, each year Trent Peak & Archaeology excavate an area of Nottingham Castle grounds to add some missing pieces to the story of the castle. Through

    Going Underground: Explore Nottingham’s Top Ten Caves

    Sometimes the most captivating features of a place are not those which stand out immediately, and you have to delve a little deeper to discover the best secrets. Of any city in Britain, this is perhaps most true of Nottingham and its vast underground network of caves. Under our city streets lies a subterranean world full of stories, history and intrigue – but it is only in the past few decades that they have been given the spotlight for exploration.

    Owing to the sandstone foundations under our feet, from its emergence as a settlement in the 7th century, Nottingham earned the name Tigguo Cobauc, meaning Place of Caves in Old

    Summer Preserves and Pickling Course at The School of Artisan Food

    The School of Artisan Food is a deluxe culinary school hidden away in the depths of The Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire. Since the school was founded in 2006 by two dedicated bakers, it has grown to cover a vast range of courses for all abilities, stretching from one day courses to ten month Advanced Diplomas, each under the tutelage of top national and international cooks.

    I was absolutely delighted to be given the chance to try a course recently and a truly fabulous day was had by all. Exploring the courses online is really simple, and the range on offer is quite spectacular, each covering something you probably wouldn’t learn yourself

    Theatre Review: The Party’s Over at Nottingham Lakeside Arts

    On a murky summer’s evening, an audience at Nottingham Lakeside Arts was invited to take a break from the illusion of normality. The Party’s Over, a new performance from local cultural studio Nonsuch, lured viewers into the space between sleep and wakefulness, flashing before our eyes in a mesmerising whirlwind of sand, sensuality and uncertainty.

    Immersive theatre at its best, the performance had similarities to French theorist Antonin Artoud’s idea of the ‘Theatre of Cruelty’, a performance style which aims to dive into the audience’s subconscious and wake up the
