The Grand Tour
Following a hugely successful first season in 2015, the Grand Tour returns for Season Two. The same four venues will be coming together once again, to offer visitors an engaging cultural journey across the East Midlands.
Nottingham Contemporary and The Harley Gallery will be hosting special, free, exhibitions for the Grand Tour, and recreating the spirit of the old tours that the wealthy young aristocracy would embark upon to broaden their cultural horizons.
Spring Festival – Bloom Weekend at Attenborough Nature Centre
It’s finally here! Welcome in the Springtime at Attenborough Nature Centre, during their fun-filled Bloom Festival.
Featuring ‘Make & Take’ activities, an art ramble, storytelling, a creation station, relaxing walks around the magnificent nature centre, and much more – there will be no shortage of outdoor fun to enjoy. And hopefully the sun will show its face!
British Geological Survey Family Fun Day
Saturday 19th March will see the return of the British Geological Survey. This family fun day will open its doors again to the general public for its 14th annual fun day! It’s a FREE event, celebrating the British Science Week.
Held in Keyworth, there will be British Geological Survey displays, talks, tours and lots of hands-on activities for children and adults. This fascinating event will keep your little ones busy and teach them something new, so don’t miss it.
Clumber Park Duathlon 2016
Also on Saturday you’re invited to give the duathlon at Clumber Park a go.
This special event offers the chance to shake off the winter and test your fitness at the start of the new season.

If you’re not the athletic type, why not soak up the beautiful scenery while cheering on the competitors from the sidelines?
