  • National Trust Midlands Fresh Air Posted on 29 July 2011

    The National Trust launches a photography competition in the Midlands this summer

    Visitors to the Midlands National Trust properties this summer are being given the opportunity to win a family day out as part of a photography competition.

    The competition entitled ‘Picture Yourself in the Midlands’ is aimed at encouraging children to capture themselves, the heritage or the beautiful countryside available at some of the iconic properties that the National Trust maintains.

    In Nottinghamshire, visitors can seek inspiration at both the Workhouse and Clumber Park, once part of Sherwood Forest.

    There are three age categories, 5-8 years, 9-12 years, and 13-16 years and the winner of each category will receive a canvas print of their photograph. The overall winner will receive a day out at

  • Robin Hood Festival Posted on 27 July 2011

    Councillor John Cottee urges you to make a new date with the Robin Hood Festival

    This year’s Festival, which we’ve been organising for the past 26 years, moves to the five days from Wednesday 10 – Sunday 14 August rather than its traditional first week of August.

    It’s the biggest celebration in the country of Robin Hood and is held at Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve. It attracts fans and visitors from every corner of the globe.

    The Festival is the perfect day out for all the family, with costumed characters at every turn – from jugglers and jesters to medieval doctors and rat catchers, whilst medieval combat displays and markets stalls recreate the atmosphere of Robin’s Sherwood Forest.

    FOOD AND DRINK FESTIVAL LEAVES A GOOD TASTE

    The Nottingham Food and Drink Festival may be over for another year, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s left a lasting impression – and not just on our waistlines!

    Things were a little bit different this year. It was extended from four to 12 days for a start, which was great for dedicated foodies like us. The celeb chef demos of previous years were replaced with a packed programme of food-themed events and masterclasses at bars and restaurants across the city and there were lots of special Festival menus on offer too. There was also a Food and Drink Market in the Square, which certainly made our lunchtimes interesting

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
