    Bag I Believe in Miracles Merch at the Tourist Information Centre

    The story of Nottingham Forest’s incredible rise to the peak of world football is well known around the world, but a recent film – directed by Jonny Owen – has revived memories of the team’s thrilling achievements once more.

    I Believe in Miracles premièred with a star-studded screening at the City Ground, and has since been packing out cinemas across Nottingham – and all around the country. It tells the unlikely story of Brian Clough taking Forest from Division Two mediocrity, to back-to-back European Cup winners – in just five years.

    Featuring an infectious feel-good atmosphere, a nostalgic disco soundtrack, and previously unseen footage, the trip down memory lane has been described as

    Unearth Nottingham’s Hidden History with New Cave App & Trail

    They’ve been used as shelter from falling bombs, housing extensions, and secret passageways over the years, now – for the first time ever – a new app gives you the chance to virtually explore Nottingham’s extraordinary man-made caves.

    Nottingham’s a city built on caves, and the carefully chiselled, sandstone excavations that sit below the city centre are filled with history and intrigue.

    For a long time, these caves have been hidden mysteries, sealed off from the public, and completely inaccessible.

    So it’s no surprise that there was a real sense of excitement in the air at Nottingham Castle on Friday – as a brand new smartphone app was launched, designed to provide users

    We Won – Nottingham is Officially England’s Home of Sport!

    It’s official… Nottingham is England’s Home of Sport!
    Following months of campaigning, VisitEngland has announced the winner of its quest to find the nation’s sporting capital – and amazingly, Nottingham has taken the prize, fighting off competition from Manchester, Yorkshire, Gloucestershire, Rugby and London.

    We’re already known across the globe as the home of Robin Hood – but thanks to the public’s support, we’ve added a fantastic new string to our bow.

    Considering Nottingham’s won twice as many European Cups as London, has more sporting venues per head than any other in Europe, and has been the venue for incredible drama like England’s Ashes triumph over recent months – it’s no surprise

    Panto season must be approaching!

    Last week I took a stroll up to John Lewis in Nottingham’s intu Victoria Centre for a very special event which always marks the impending arrival of the festive season and a very special show at the Nottingham Playhouse – the Christmas pantomime!

    This years production, directed by the much-loved and seasoned Playhouse performer Kenneth Alan Taylor, tells the story of Dick Whittington – a pantomime I remember watching myself as a child right here in Nottingham. With a stellar cast performing and a well-known story to play out to eager audiences, it’s a recipe for success in 2015 for a tradition that stretches back through the decades
