    Fall in laugh with the Nottingham Comedy Festival

    My first official outing for Visit Notts took me to the Glee Club on Friday night to witness the opening of this year’s Nottingham Comedy Festival. For those of you unaware of the festival it was established by Helen Stead in 2009, following a visit to the Comedy Store and other comedy venues in London.

    She and a friend looked at the comedy scene in Nottingham and found exciting and different forms that they thought should be brought together to highlight all the talent that Nottingham has to offer.

    Here we are eight years later and the festival is going from strength to strength, with over 80 acts performing over nine days. Not

    A Very Victorian Murder: Review of The Woolly Tellers

    On a brisk autumnal evening last week, I had the pleasure of attending A Very Victorian Murder. It’s not quite as bad as it sounds – the murder took place over 160 years ago – but its tragic events were to be retold in an atmospheric evening of dramatic narration.

    Our hosts for the evening were local raconteurs The Woolly Tellers, who have been performing to audiences for the past eight years and most often specialise in stories local to Nottinghamshire.

    In the face of technological overload, I rather find good old-fashioned entertainment quite refreshing, and back in January another of their shows had caught my eye. ‘Definitely Not Respectable’ sounded

    Family Fun for All at Clip’ n Climb’ Nottingham

    My daughter-in-law was looking for a venue for my grandson’s 6th birthday party.

    Clip n’ Climb fitted the bill perfectly – with 22, five and six year olds ready to burn off lots of energy the excitement and anticipation was high!

    Clip’ n Climb, didn’t disappoint! From the warm welcome, the informative and friendly safety briefing, to letting the little ones loose on the 26 obstacle courses including Jungle Vine, Sky Scraper, Spaghetti Junction, Lightning Crack and Stairway to Heaven, to name a few!

    The children had a great time scaling the walls, climbing to the top and being proud of their achievements. My grandson even braved the leap of faith.

    The food was amazing
