THE SEARCH IS ON TO FIND NOTTINGHAM’S BEST BAR NONE

BBN_Screen_voting_FINAL_275

As you know, food and drink is one of our favourite topics, so the launch of this year’s Best Bar None Awards in Nottingham has created a bit of a talking point.

For those not in the know, Best Bar None is a national awards scheme that’s backed by the Home Office and designed to promote responsible management of bars, pubs and clubs.  There are over 100 schemes in other UK cities and towns.

The awards made a welcome return to our city last year, following a four-year break, thanks to We Are Nottingham Leisure, the Business Improvement District for leisure venues in the city centre.

Nottingham’s group of experts have already been in and put the leisure venues through their paces, so now it’s down to all of us to help decide the winners.

We’re pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to bars, pubs and clubs that go the extra mile to make sure we all have a safe and enjoyable night out, so we’re in for some tough decisions.

With voting now open, we’re sure that debates will begin in offices and homes across the city. Who will be named Nottingham’s ‘Best Large Bar’? Which small pub ticks all the right boxes and which club is worthy of a trophy?

Well, we haven’t got long to make up our minds as voting closes on Sunday 23rd October and the winners will be announced at a glitzy awards ceremony in November, so now’s the time to get behind your favourite pubs, bars and clubs and help them on their way to victory.

As an added bonus, all voters are being entered into a competition to win a night on the town for four people, so vote now by visiting www.nottinghambbn.co.uk.

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…
