  • Nottingham Food and Drink Festival Posted on 25 July 2011

    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

  • Nottingham Gig Guide Posted on 21 July 2011

    Reg Enderby, Editor of the Nottingham Gig Guide talks about promoting local concerts

    I began the Nottingham Gig Guide some three years ago as there did not seem to be one specific internet site that covered all genres of music in the city.  Now at last it is recognised by local and visiting people alike to be their first port of call to find out where live music is on in town or anywhere in the NG postcode as the guide covers the whole of Nottinghamshire.

    Any venue, band or act can register and list their gigs for free with details including gig dates, photographs, biographies, weblinks and contact details.  Visitors to the site can pick any day of the week to view what’s on

    The Curioso at Mansfield Museum Theatre show set in a curiosity shop.

    ‘The Curioso’ (McWheel & Munch Proprietors), is a quaint theatrical shop of curiosities in a time of it’s own which is opening it’s doors to your imagination and inviting you to enter the foolhardy, weird and wonderful world of artefacts from the chaotic & humorous life of harmless co-Proprietor Ian Munch. The silent partner Mr. McWheel never appears, as he travels far & wide in search of new curious objects to ‘flog off, but’ keeps check on the business and the less than competent Munch via telephonic contact. In the shop, Ninja Monkey; Mrs. T. Lady; The Cloaked One & The Curious Customer help Munch from the outset to reorganise the

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…
