Things to do this weekend, 14-15 September
We all know how great it is to live in our wonderful county. Every week there is so much going around Notts that it’s really hard to fit it all into our calendars. For those who like to organise themselves before the weekend begins we’re here to help. For more inspiration, go to the What’s on section of our website where you’ll find the full list of events.
Night of Festivals Touring
Following the tremendous success of Night of Festivals 2012, ArtReach has created Night of Festivals Touring, with a vibrant, new artistic programme, most of which has free access. The night of festivals will visit the Old Market Square on Friday 13 September between 11am-10pm and Saturday 14 September between 11am-5pm. The spectators will be able to participate in a wide range of exciting world arts including live music, storytelling, moving image and digital arts, street arts, temporary public art and much more. The event takes place in the heart of Notts and it would be a waste to miss it since the next chance won’t happen until next year.
Heritage Open Days from 12th till 15th September celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. It’s an unusual opportunity to see places in Notts that you weren’t able to see and experience before. Several venues open their doors for visitors and offer free tours. Consult our page for details, check the programme and organise your own heritage trip around Notts.
For those of you who didn’t have the chance to read our last week blog, Mela 100 is a festival celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema and poetry taking place every year at various locations around Notts. The final event of the festival is scheduled for this Sunday 15th of September, 11am to 5pm in Nottingham Castle. The organisers planned a picnic in the park with music and markets for everyone. Pop in with family and friends and feel the festive mood of Mela100.

The Nottingham Playhouse presents 1984 by George Orwell. 1984 is a co-production with Headlong and will be directed by Robert Icke who brought Romeo and Juliet to The Playhouse in 2012. The production runs from this Friday 13 September till Saturday 28 September and is hugely anticipated by the spectators.
