    Nottingham Playhouse launches its Christmas Panto

    What’s your first sign of Christmas? Adverts on the telly? Music in the shops? This year for me it was a visit to Nottingham Playhouse for the unveiling of NCT’s Panto Bus.

    This year’s panto is Cinderella and, while not a pumpkin, the NCT’s bus was suitably decked out, with Cinderella and Buttons on hand to spread a little festive cheer.

    For anyone (like me) who hasn’t seen or read the story before it’s the story of a dashing prince hosting a ball, which Cinderella would give anything to go to, but her stepmother and sisters have other plans. Can Cinderella escape their clutches and, with the help of her Fairy Godmother

    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.

    She and a friend looked at the comedy scene in Nottingham and found exciting and different forms that they thought should be brought together to highlight all the talent that Nottingham has to offer.

    Here we are eight years later and the festival is going from strength to strength, with over 80 acts performing over nine days. Not

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…
