Things to do this weekend, 12-14 April 2013

Langar Hall exterior

Maybe spring is finally upon us and with this last weekend of the Easter holidays, it’s a good opportunity to get out and about to explore outdoors, and enjoy the milder weather. We have excellent entertainment lined up for the weekend as well as fun activities and top sporting fixtures.

Warm up for the ashes by popping down to support Nottinghamshire in their opening game of the LV= Division One Championships against Middlesex.
Also on a sporting theme, Nottingham Rugby take on Cornish Pirates at Meadow Lane on Sunday 14 April 2013. Cornish Pirates have strong support so the atmosphere for this game should be good.

Newark Air Museum celebrates 40 years open to the public with an Anniversary Gala on Sunday 14 April. This superb venue is host to some vintage aircraft such as the Vampire and Venom and will be offering a special discounted fee of £4 per person.

Langar April Village Fete is a traditional village fete in spectacular rural settings, at the stunning property of Langar Hall. With food, craft and much more at one of Sir Paul Smith’s favourite hotels, you’ll be in for a treat.

Children will love the performance of Justin and Friends at Capital FM Arena. The show includes guests and all the favourite characters from Justin’s House, Gigglebiz and Something Special.

On Sunday 14 April Meatloaf will be performing hits such as Bat Out of Hell at Capital FM Arena.

Last Chance to Catch…

Mad About Madagascar at the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre.  Meet amazing meercats and other Madagascan species up close with themed activities, crafts and games.

Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw at Nottingham Arts Theatre.  The play was the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady and is sure to be a hit with the audience.

James and the Giant Peach at the Theatre Royal Nottingham. This Roald Dahl classic is brought to life in a fantastically anarchic production by Birmingham Stage Company.

Whatever you do in Nottinghamshire this weekend, we’d love to hear all about it. Send us your comments and pictures via the Love Notts Facebook Page or Experience Nottinghamshire Twitter Account!
