    Nottingham History & Telling Tales with The Woolly Tellers

    If you caught last week’s blog, you’ll know that earlier this month we thoroughly enjoyed ‘A Very Victorian Murder’ with The Woolly Tellers – an evening of suspense which brought Victorian Nottingham to life through the time-honoured art of spoken word storytelling.
