    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

    Pride and Prejudice at Nottingham Playhouse

    This brand new comic adaptation by a stand-up comedian Sara Pascoe with an original score from Emmy the Great and directed by Susannah Tresilian (Director of Posh in 2015) didn’t disappoint. We went to see it for ourselves this week so continue reading if you want to find out what we thought about it.

    Genevieve – Sara Pascoe isn’t a name that you would expect to find alongside the classic novel title, Pride and Prejudice, so when I heard of her new adaptation of the Jane Austen story, I was already intrigued. I expected that Sara Pascoe, being known for her comedic skills, writing and experience as an actress, would breathe fresh air into the 19th Century romance and I was not disappointed.

    Interview with Artist Joe Ganech

    Self-taught artist Joe Ganech has had a love affair with art since he was a child. A lifelong anglophile, inspiration struck Joe whilst in Nottinghamshire, and in late 2016 he began creating a collection of colourful, imaginative paintings inspired by the history of the county. With his work to be sold at Nottingham Tourism Centre from September 19th, we caught up with Joe to discuss his work and inspirations

    VN: Tell us a little about yourself and your background as an artist… 

    My background as an artist is quite unusual. I worked for twenty years in a luxury hotel in Brussels, which left very little time for art in general.
