    Things to do this half term, 22-30 October

     It’s October half term and if you have a family there’s the chance to go away for a few days or have days out with things to do for your children.

    The awards made a welcome return to our city last year, following a four-year break, thanks to We Are Nottingham Leisure, the Business Improvement District for leisure venues in the city centre.
