Clumber Park Run
If your new year’s resolution is to stay fit, this might just be the trick for you. Kickstart your weekend by exploring the beautiful Clumber Park in early spring as the shoots and seedlings are beginning to emerge, and gather motivation with a group run. The 5km route takes you through the park woodland, beginning at The Burrow.
Please note: it is advised that those joining for the first time need to register.
Mixed Media Collage Crafternoon
If you’re up for learning a new skill or creating something beautiful, Debbie Bryan Studio hosts a fantastic selection of workshops and Crafternoons in their tea rooms. This Saturday you can experiment with new techniques using unusual materials such as copper etching, wirework and paper to create a mixed media collage to take home. This is, of course, all while you enjoy delicious tea, coffee and cake to get you going.
Revived: The Story of Moll Frith
Throughout history women are mostly depicted as prim and proper, but there are some who broke the mould. ‘Cutthroat Moll’ was a 17th century highway-woman, stalking the roads of England she fought and swindled for her living, most often dressed as a man to enjoy the freedom of male life on the outskirts of society. Nottingham based actress Claire Finn brings Moll back to life at Newarks’ National Civil War Centre with a dramatic retelling of her life. For four days only this performance is not to be missed!
Saturday Jazz at Strays
When in Newark, why not make a day of it and unwind on Saturday afternoon with a cool, creative jazz performance at Strays Coffee Shop. ‘Bringing elements of Django Reinhardt Gypsy Jazz, Bossa in the style of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the cool jazz of Miles Davis’ this local jazz trio have been performing together for years and its evident in their laid back improvised technique.
Silent Disco On Ice
This extra special silent disco on ice lets you show off your skating skills as you whizz around the rink of the National Ice Centre. Choose from a selection of tunes to listen to through your own personal headphones, or if you fancy a giggle go mute for a minute and listen to an amusing inharmonious singalong. Choose from the family silent disco for a family day out or the later club session for a fun night out with friends.
Don’t forget, of course, this Friday also sees Light Night brighten up the streets of Nottingham, with an impressive array of events all over the city. Keep your eyes peeled for a blog covering our favourite events tomorrow!
