    GameCity6

    Last Thursday, we were lucky enough to attend the launch of GameCity6, Nottingham’s very own videogame culture festival. Now in its 6th year, GameCity has seen its audience increase and broaden quite spectacularly over the years.

    The launch event was hosted by the very entertaining Iain Simons, director of GameCity, and involved QR Codes cupcakes, a new edition of their ‘There’s Horace!’ game which we got quite excitingly involved in, videogames, special guests from around the world AND a lot of exciting announcements about this year’s festival.

    Our host reiterated the fact that GameCity is mostly about fun and his wish is for the 6th edition to be ‘even more fun’. The festival

    Review: Simple Minds live at Sherwood Pines

    Sherwood Pines, Saturday 18th June 2011

    When I was around 15, I was heavily involved in badminton which meant a lot of travelling across the country. This meant time on the road and during those days Simple Minds was the soundtrack to early mornings and late nights at weekends. Their recent appearance at Sherwood Pines was a great opportunity to relive those days – or was it?

    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.

    Sophie Ellis-Bexter opened the night but it was obvious

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…
