    Fall in laugh with the Nottingham Comedy Festival

    My first official outing for Visit Notts took me to the Glee Club on Friday night to witness the opening of this year’s Nottingham Comedy Festival. For those of you unaware of the festival it was established by Helen Stead in 2009, following a visit to the Comedy Store and other comedy venues in London.

    A Festive Fair at Holme Pierrepont Hall

    Finding the ideal gift for family and friends can be quite difficult.  You want the present to be thoughtful… unique… which is not always easy when one shop sells similar, if not the same, gifts as the next. A Christmas fair with individual stall holders offering everything from hand crafted jewellery to creative kids’ toys, home-made treats to funky fashions and everything in between, can offer the inspiration and individuality sadly lacking on the high street.

    I went along to the Holme Pierrepoint Christmas Fair Preview night last year and loved every minute of it.  Parking was easy – right on the doorstep and I was greeted with

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.
