    Review: The Spectacular Forest Live

    Last month saw the return of the hugely popular Forest Live to the spectacular setting of Sherwood Pines in Nottinghamshire, with artists such as Olly Murs, Tom Jones, Elbow, Louise Johnson and more performing live for their fans.

    Visit Nottinghamshire had to be represented at those great gigs and two of my colleagues – Elisia and Simon – got a chance to go and experience Forest Live for themselves. Elisia went to see Olly Murs, Simon on the other hand chose to see Elbow. Read on to find out what they thought of this celebration of music in the heart of Sherwood Forest.

    Owing to the sandstone foundations under our feet, from its emergence as a settlement in the 7th century, Nottingham earned the name Tigguo Cobauc, meaning Place of Caves in Old

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…
