“When it comes to choosing my favourite place in Nottingham there are a few locations that spring to mind. Be it one of the numerous lovely comedy clubs that I’ve had the pleasure to perform at in the form of Glee, Jongleurs, Canalhouse, Nottingham Playhouse etc.

There’s also the various sports grounds such as Trent Bridge, the City Ground or Meadow Lane. However being a loyal Brentford fan the latter two mentioned place would not be the most sensible options to suggest.

I’d say my favourite place in Nottingham is Hooters restaurant. Yes, that’s right. You read that correctly. Hooters! For me it has everything I cherish dearly in my life; great food, especially on a Monday when they have the chicken wings buffet! In addition there are giant TV screens that show various sports channels and of course they have the very attractive and er… ‘talented’ staff who work there. C’mon, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t notice the Hooters staff! Even Stevie Wonder would notice them!”

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
