Things to do this weekend 1-3 March 2013
How can it be March already? It’s nearly spring which means daffodils and digging out those marigolds for a spot of spring cleaning. Before you knuckle down to making your home fresh, make the most of your time with our fantastic round-up of weekend events!
For lovers of all things spooky, a paranormal ghost hunt awaits you on Friday at Wollaton Hall, where you can join the Haunted Events UK team on a ghost hunt. For further information and to book tickets, visit the Haunted Events UK website.
The Nottingham Playhouse is offering the inspirational journey of Nick, as he discovers what it takes for a man to become a hero, and how a hero can just be a man. The heart warming tale, My Father and Other Superheroes, is set across continents and eras, we follow his journey from childhood to fatherhood and facing his own demons. You can catch this on Friday and Saturday.
Need a chuckle to end your week? Head to the Glee Club on Friday or Saturday to see The Best in Stand-Up Comedy, showing the hugely talented Paul Chowdhry, along with Mike Ferry, Geoff Norcott and the lovable Kai Humphries, each of which have gained comedy notoriety in recent years.
On Sunday, the Nottingham Vintage Fair returns to The Albert Hall. Just £1 entry to gain access to Nottingham’s only bona fide vintage fair, featuring 50 stalls over two floors, plus a vintage tea room and beauty salon.
In Notts we love the outdoors thanks to the ever so slightly warmer weather and our abundance of greenery, so everyone will love the Legends of Sherwood Notorious Night Run at Sherwood Pines Forest Park! Maid Marians and Merry Men from all over will come together to take on a 10k adventure! Don your Robin Hood gear, string those bows and fettle those head torches and get muddy on Saturday.
Southwell Minster offers you a unique chance for an Evening with Dame Stella Rimmington, a truly inspirational woman who was the first female director of MI5 and has written widely of her experiences. She has lived a colourful and varied life and you can hear about it on Friday.
On Sunday is the Thoresby Sunday Market, the largest outdoor Sunday Market in Nottinghamshire. There will be plenty of stalls selling a range of products from gifts to tasty treats. Rides, fun and games for children will also be present, a perfect day out for all the family.
