Things to do this weekend, 19-21 August 2011
We’re already beginning to think about the weekend here and given that we’re still in the throes of the summer school holidays there’s a heck of a lot going on around Nottinghamshire.
Here’s our list of some of the things that we think you might want to do:
On Friday 19 August, you’ll find Newark Antiques Fair at Newark Showground. This event only takes place every other month and is a big draw for antiques traders and customers alike. Find yourself something totally unique and pick up a bargain.
Every evening over the weekend up to and including Sunday 21 August, you’ll find Purelands Japanese Garden lit up with lanterns from 7pm to 10pm. This creates a truly enchanted setting that is perfect for the time of year.
On Friday and Saturday, you’ll find the Fine Food Market on Nottingham’s Old Market Square selling local produce and delicacies for meat dairy and groceries. Put together the ingredients for that special meal.
Also in the city, we still have the Robin Hood Town Tour from Nottingham Castle on Saturday 20 August at 5pm. Be guided around the city by our resident Robin Hood, Ade Andrews and learn all about the legend and our fine city.
It’s still the season for outdoor theatre and tomorrow night you’ll find Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta The Pirates of Penzance being performed as part of the Newstead Summer Stages. To book tickets, please call 0115 989 5555.
Finally, there’s plenty of live music up at Clumber Park with the Flashback Festival, Pop Party in the Park and Katherine Jenkins performing live. The Pop Party includes N-Dubz and The Wanted whilst the Flashback Festival includes The Human League and Nick Kershaw among others. For tickets, please call 01909 512534.
And that’s about it for our round up. For a full list of things to do visit our website for a list of Nottingham events and much, much more.
