    City Centre Beach returns to Nottingham

    As I trundled into work on the tram yesterday, I got to Old Market Square and a flicker of excitement ran through me as I saw wooden bases being carefully laid out. Maybe I am that sad to be enthusiastic about such a thing, but those wooden bases meant that Nottingham Riviera, our own city centre beach was beginning to be laid.

    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.

    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?

    Simple Minds faded into the background as I got older and discovered more bands around what would be eventually labelled the Britpop scene. The music landscape has changed again since then and I wondered whether Simple Minds

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…
