    Storytelling Show: The Merry Tales of Robin Hood

    My family day out in Nottingham to see Disney on Ice

    Last Saturday, I was fortunate enough to see Disney on Ice at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena. A lot of people I’ve met had been raving about the performances in recent years and having two young children (one age 4 and a half, and one just over 2 years old) we booked and decided to make a family day out of it.

    Firstly, I live in the far flung depths of the north of the county so popping into the city didn’t seem so easy with young children. We went for the mid afternoon show (around 2.30pm) and getting meals would be

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect
