    Review: Simple Minds live at Sherwood Pines

    Sherwood Pines, Saturday 18th June 2011

    Review: Erasure live at Sherwood Pines

    Sherwood Pines Friday 17th June 2011

    Sherwood Pines has hosted some big names in music in recent years, but I doubt many of them offered as fine-tuned pop as Erasure. With a stage nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest, you could feel the excitement of the crowd was condensed into an intimate arena, and it only heightened as the evening went on.

    Erasure’s appearance was part of their ‘Total Pop!’ summer shows, a series of gigs in woodlands and forests as part of the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series. The tour coincides with the duo’s 14th studio album due to be released this summer.

Nottingham’s New Independent Shopping Trail

More often than not the best things in life take a bit longer to discover, and it is certainly something to keep in mind when getting to know a city. While Nottingham is splendidly compact to get around, if you roam a little beyond the bustle of the main city streets you’ll find a true…

Fun and Games at The National Videogame Arcade

Often hailed in the media as advocating negative behaviour, the focus on the beneficial aspects of gaming as a new way to learn, develop skills and have fun can be very much overlooked.
