    Galleries of Justice January Sale

    It’s not just shops that get involved in the January sales these days. The Galleries of Justice Museum has rather enterprisingly got involved with its own half price discount.

    The museum, which is located in the Lace Market area of Nottingham, has intriguingly taken advantage of the theme by promoting half price entry throughout January for anyone wishing to visit.

    This means that people looking for family days out this winter will have to pay just £12.50 for a family ticket of a performance tour of the former gaol and court house. Adults will only have to pay £4.50 per person and children/concessions just £3.50 per person.

    The Dukeries, Welbeck Abbey

    Of all the ducal properties in Sherwood Forest, Welbeck Abbey is the one with the most intrigue. Still a privately owned property by descendants of the Duke of Portland, the estate around the abbey is taking on an increasing role for visitors to the region.

    So why does the abbey hold such interest? Well for a start, the fact that it is still in the hands of a ducal ancestors adds to the excitement, history and charm of links to the traditional English nobility. Also, because the estate has been used for several years by the Ministry of Defence, there has been very little public access to such a grand building.

  • Lone Tree by Sally Outram taken at Mattersey Posted on 22 December 2011

    Mattersey photo receives artistic honour

    A few weeks ago, Sally Outram submitted her photo of a wintery shot of Mattersey near Retford into Experience Nottinghamshire’s photography competition. Little did she know that this would set off a chain of events that would end up with the shot being commemorated as a top painting.

    When her photo, entitled ‘Lone Tree’ reached the top 30 finalists in the competition, it was posted on the Love Notts Facebook page and an artist picked up on the scene who asked Sally’s permission to paint it.

    With Sally’s agreement, Yorkshire watercolour artist Glenn Marshall set to work on the piece and since then things have really taken off. The final painting has received excellent reviews and

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. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
