  • Newark Antiques Fair Posted on 18 August 2011

    Things to do this weekend, 19-21 August 2011

    We’re already beginning to think about the weekend here and given that we’re still in the throes of the summer school holidays there’s a heck of a lot going on around Nottinghamshire.

    Here’s our list of some of the things that we think you might want to do:

    On Friday 19 August, you’ll find Newark Antiques Fair at Newark Showground. This event only takes place every other month and is a big draw for antiques traders and customers alike. Find yourself something totally unique and pick up a bargain.

  • Nottingham Food and Drink Festival Posted on 25 July 2011

    FOOD AND DRINK FESTIVAL LEAVES A GOOD TASTE

    The Nottingham Food and Drink Festival may be over for another year, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s left a lasting impression – and not just on our waistlines!

    Things were a little bit different this year. It was extended from four to 12 days for a start, which was great for dedicated foodies like us. The celeb chef demos of previous years were replaced with a packed programme of food-themed events and masterclasses at bars and restaurants across the city and there were lots of special Festival menus on offer too. There was also a Food and Drink Market in the Square, which certainly made our lunchtimes interesting

    The Curioso at Mansfield Museum Theatre show set in a curiosity shop.

    ‘The Curioso’ (McWheel & Munch Proprietors), is a quaint theatrical shop of curiosities in a time of it’s own which is opening it’s doors to your imagination and inviting you to enter the foolhardy, weird and wonderful world of artefacts from the chaotic & humorous life of harmless co-Proprietor Ian Munch. The silent partner Mr. McWheel never appears, as he travels far & wide in search of new curious objects to ‘flog off, but’ keeps check on the business and the less than competent Munch via telephonic contact. In the shop, Ninja Monkey; Mrs. T. Lady; The Cloaked One & The Curious Customer help Munch from the outset to reorganise the

    City Centre Beach returns to Nottingham

    As I trundled into work on the tram yesterday, I got to Old Market Square and a flicker of excitement ran through me as I saw wooden bases being carefully laid out. Maybe I am that sad to be enthusiastic about such a thing, but those wooden bases meant that Nottingham Riviera, our own city centre beach was beginning to be laid.

    Now for anyone who is totally confused by what I’ve just said or hasn’t experienced anything like it before, the beach is just that – a whole load of sand in the middle of Nottingham. Put around it a paddling pool, a beach bar, a Helter Skelter and a few

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…
