Things to do this weekend 1st-3rd February
We can’t believe it’s almost February – it seems only yesterday we were unwrapping our presents by the Christmas tree! The time between Christmas and Easter can seem a little bleak, but with our constant flow of weekend fun, you can be sure to keep the blues away!
This weekend kicks off on Friday with the much anticipated opening of the Snowdrops at Hodsock Priory. Nothing says spring like a ground of Snowdrops, so pop along and enjoy a lungful of fresh air, with a few new features including a new under-canvas Snowdrop Village which will be home to a luxury tea room, gift shop and plant sale.
If fun and laughter is what you’re after, take the little ones to see Madagascar Live, where everyone’s favourite characters, Alex, Melman, Gloria and Marty will put on a show of song and dance to relive the humour of their escapades at the National Ice Arena from Saturday.
Grease is the word this Friday at the Crowne Plaza, where a Grease Tribute Night consists of a three-course dinner, tribute act and disco. Book now!
If your children are going through a phase of enjoying science whilst blowing things up, then take them off to Green’s Windmill on Saturday to make a volcano, before seeing it erupt! This event is for children 5+ and is sure to be both educational and fun.
Treat the children to a wonderful, magical performance of Mavis Sparkle, a cheery cuckoo clock, a mischievous mop bucket, ingenious inventions and a nice cup of tea as she sets off on a star-lit adventure on Sunday 2rd February at Lakeside Arts Centre.
A cheeky little number is showing at the Nottingham Arts Theatre on the 2nd February – Den of Iniquity will surprise and delight, offering rip-roaring fun with a risqué egde. This cabaret show is for 18+ and promises vocal talent, comedy, aerial gymnastics, dance troupes, fire performers, burlesque artistes and many more.
If you’re getting married this year, head along to the wedding open day at The Riverbank Bar and Kitchen on Sunday 3rd February for an opportunity to view the Gallery dressed for a wedding, meet dedicated events team and sample some delicious canapés.
