    Performance Review: Touched at Nottingham Playhouse, 22nd February 2017

    Well go to the foot of our stairs, what a performance!

    On Tuesday night we went to see Touched and what a privilege it was. One of Nottingham Playhouse’s 40th anniversary productions, written by Nottingham playwright, Stephen Lowe, we got a glimpse of 1940s life in Nottingham. Set during the end of World War II, the story revolves around the impact on those at home living in constant fear and hardship but in true to British tradition, having to keep calm and carry on.

    Without giving too much away, here are some of our favourite bits:

    If you’re after some loud rock ‘n’ roll this Saturday night, get yourself over to Contemporary Cafe Bar for another of their excellent Saturday night gigs. This week sees Hull/Leeds sister duo Chambers, who have been making waves with their ‘sister doom’ stylings. Support come from Nottingham glam gang Diablo Furs, who never fail to impress with their trashy 70s punk performances, and 2-piece Minatore who thrash out groovy alternative rock reminiscent of 90s grunge.

    Exhibition Exposition: UNTITLED at New Art Exchange

    As the largest gallery in the UK to focus on culturally diverse visual arts, the New Art Exchange celebrates the rich spectrum of nationalities and culture which populate the local area. Providing high quality exhibitions, events, workshops and performances, there is a varied programme available throughout the week and at weekends, welcoming everyone from art tourists to families and young people. A fresh, engaging space which is as much connected with the visitors as it is with the artists, NAE is most definitely worth checking out. Last week we took a trip to check out their latest exhibition UNTITLED: art on the conditions of our time.
