    Performance Review: Touched at Nottingham Playhouse, 22nd February 2017

    Well go to the foot of our stairs, what a performance!

    On Tuesday night we went to see Touched and what a privilege it was. One of Nottingham Playhouse’s 40th anniversary productions, written by Nottingham playwright, Stephen Lowe, we got a glimpse of 1940s life in Nottingham. Set during the end of World War II, the story revolves around the impact on those at home living in constant fear and hardship but in true to British tradition, having to keep calm and carry on.

    Without giving too much away, here are some of our favourite bits:

    Contemporary Cafe Bar
    Saturday 25th February, 8pm. Free.

    If you’re after some loud rock ‘n’ roll this Saturday night, get yourself over to Contemporary Cafe Bar for another of their excellent Saturday night gigs. This week sees Hull/Leeds sister duo Chambers, who have been making waves with their ‘sister doom’ stylings. Support come from Nottingham glam gang Diablo Furs, who never fail to impress with their trashy 70s punk performances, and 2-piece Minatore who thrash out groovy alternative rock reminiscent of 90s grunge.

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
