    Bramcote also features well in Alan Sillitoe’s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. Arthur Seaton may just come round and bang your heads together Radio 4. Here are our highlights of other things to do this weekend.

    It’s still English Tourism Week and there are still some great activities and offers to be found. Head to Newstead Abbey for entry at £6 per car rather than the usual per

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.
