    Things To Do This Weekend in Nottingham: 15th – 17th September

    Despite the trees growing pretty and the nights turning in, we are not sure we are quite ready for autumn just yet. Luckily, each year Nottingham provides some cracking events during September and October, to ease us in and show us that hibernation is far from necessary. From food and drink festivals in the country estates and celebrations of ancient natural heritage, to dancing at street parties in Hockley, it’s time to make the most of the great outdoors.

    Discovering The Secrets of Bromley House Library

    Despite the world becoming increasingly digitalised, our appreciation of good old paper and ink is gradually growing. The forces of technology are not deterring bibliophiles and bookworms from declaring their love for the treasured practice of browsing bookshelves and getting lost in print.

    Literary legends Lord Byron, DH Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe all resided in Nottingham and the city’s spirit was fused into their words and rebellious ideologies. And it seems ink still runs in our veins: the strength of the city’s contemporary literary scene led to Nottingham being named UNESCO City of Literature in 2015.

    So where in Nottingham can you find yourself surrounded by

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…
