It’s one of the biggest dates in the Notts calendar, as Nottingham Castle is taken over by barrel after barrel of ales and ciders, and the merriment commences!

Featuring over 1,000 different ales and ciders to work your way through, the tickets sell fast, so why not treat Dad to a great day (or weekend) sampling the finest beers Nottinghamshire has to offer.

Pick up your tickets from Nottingham Tourism Centre, if you want to save on postage costs.

T20 Blast Tickets

Notts Outlaws have started their T20 Blast campaign with a bang! Treat Dad to a day out at Trent Bridge, watching as the stars wallop the ball to every corner of the famous old ground, in one of July’s four frenetic T20 match-ups.

Splendour Festival Tickets

It’s always a grand day out, and whether your dad’s a down-with-the-kids Jess Glynne fan, or more of a UB40 fanatic, a ticket to Splendour Festival, hosted at the magnificent Wollaton Hall, is sure to go down a treat.

Even better, if you have a citycard, you’ll get a discount on the ticket price (dad doesn’t need to know!) Once again, tickets can be picked up from the Tourism Centre.
