Starting with Macbeth on Friday 22nd, Much Ado About Nothing on Saturday 23rd – both at Nottingham Castle, and if you’ve can’t make it on neither Friday nor Saturday there’s one more performance of Much Ado About Nothing on Sunday 24th at Newstead Abbey. So Grab a blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy a variety of exciting performances. Book your tickets online.

2. In the midst of Pokemon fever we encourage you to do something different this weekend and go on a Butterfly hunt instead. Take your little ones and discover the nature wonders of Sherwood Forest this Saturday 23rd from 10:30am till noon. Find out more here.

3. And if you’re a bit more nocturnal we’ve got just a thing… 👻
