Reflecting on these moments can be hard and difficult to deal with, and this new production at Nottingham Playhouse entitled ‘Shame’ tells the story of times like this, where in life we regret a decision we made, a missed opportunity or a bad choice.

Shame is a unique production brought to you in a hip-hop style from some of the UK’s finest b-boy performers, with spoken word and a choreographed show produced for you by Mickael “Marso” Riviere and an original music score by Jamie Woon and Royce Wood Junior. It’s a thought provoking and innovative stage show that’s well worth seeing.

The show runs from 20th – 22nd March and shows start at 8pm. For full ticket information please visit the Nottingham Playhouse website or visit the ticket office or alternatively call them on 0115 9419419.

Clumber Park Duathlon 2014

Why not don the running shoes this weekend and take part in the Clumber Park Duathlon on Saturday 22nd March? The event offers a stunning and picturesque location for you to get into practice for the new season and prepare for the summer months in true athletic fashion. The event is aimed at not only those with experience, but also first-time runners of varying ability who are starting out on the journey of keeping fit and pushing their bodies to the limit.

It’s a perfect event to taste the feeling of a big race and get in the groove as part of a keep-fit routine if you’re getting into practice for a big event later in 2014. There’s also the choice between a sprint event or the classic long distance event which takes in the beautiful scenery and backdrop of North Nottinghamshire’s Clumber Park, right in the heart of Robin Hood Country.
