    The Hidden Delights of Derby Road

    To make the most of your exploration of Nottingham’s city centre, a little venture off the beaten track can lead to unique encounters and rewards. We have got a thriving independent community of people cultivating their personal interests into well curated businesses, and this of course means knowledge, passion and dedication are inherent within their services. Derby Road, a sophisticated street that you might not often think to visit, has maintained a culture of local business for decades. Top notch eateries, quirky shops and some of the best beer gardens in the city… if you’ve not had the pleasure yet, we really do recommend a wander!

    Autism Friendly Events & Venues in Nottingham

    With a more thorough understanding of special needs on the rise, autism friendly events have begun to be implemented throughout the UK, allowing those on the autism spectrum, along with their carers and families, to enjoy and take part in regular events and attractions.

    Often providing ‘early bird’ or late night openings, participating venues can allow those with autism or additional requirements to enjoy their events and attractions in a more relaxed setting. These tailored events can include limited number of visitors, toned down lighting, and less noise to reduce over stimulation, along with chill-out spaces to relax in if things get a little overwhelming.

    Spring Encounters in Nottinghamshire

    “There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more.”
    – Lord Byron

    The snowdrops have emerged, lambing season has begun and the daffodils are slowly waking up to Spring. Pushing through the dregs of winter, the sun has teased us over the past few weeks, unleashing random bursts of sunshine and giving us that addictive energy which makes us look to the summer months ahead.

    You might have warmer climes on the mind, but in the meantime there are

    Fun and Games at The National Videogame Arcade

    Videogames are a pastime that easily splits opinion. Often hailed in the media as advocating negative behaviour, the focus on the beneficial aspects of gaming as a new way to learn, develop skills and have fun can be very much overlooked.

    Along with its annual festival Game City, The National Videogame Arcade in Hockley is here to change that. As the world’s first centre to celebrate and explore video game culture, since opening in March 2015 The NVA has firmly championed the role of gaming in society, aiming to bring gaming to a wider audience and offer an exciting space to play games, which is fun, educational and
