    A Very Victorian Murder: Review of The Woolly Tellers

    On a brisk autumnal evening last week, I had the pleasure of attending A Very Victorian Murder. It’s not quite as bad as it sounds – the murder took place over 160 years ago – but its tragic events were to be retold in an atmospheric evening of dramatic narration.

    Our hosts for the evening were local raconteurs The Woolly Tellers, who have been performing to audiences for the past eight years and most often specialise in stories local to Nottinghamshire.

    Just What The Botanist Ordered

    Located just ten minutes from Nottingham city centre on the town’s main thoroughfare Bridgford Road, The Botanist is a complimentary addition to the existing strip of bars and restaurants, which offer a relaxed and chic night out for those seeking an alternative to the city centre bustle.

    Along with stunning cocktails and delicious food, the sumptuous

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.
