    Interview with Artist Joe Ganech

    Self-taught artist Joe Ganech has had a love affair with art since he was a child.

    The Parliament Oak & Other Legendary Nottinghamshire Trees

    With the legendary Sherwood Forest on the north Nottinghamshire’s doorstep, it is no wonder Nottinghamshire has some incredible trees. A walk through the lush and leafy glades of Sherwood Forest is a pleasure for the senses whatever the season, and a perfect way to unwind from the busy and modern world. For those who want to branch out a little further, there are numerous activities to take part in within the forest, from learning about conservation and local wildlife to flying around on zip wires at Go Ape.

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.
