Things to do this weekend, 23-25 March 2012
Spring is definitely in the air this week, the trees have begun to bud and the daffodils are finally in full flow. As the daylight starts to draw out, it seems to be the time of year when we all get enthusiastic about getting outdoors.
If running one mile doesn’t seem to be much of a challenge, then head to Clumber Park for the Classic Dualathon, which includes running (twice!) and cycling. To help with the pain you will have what must be one of the most picturesque routes around. Or maybe you could just watch and soak up the view?
Slowing the pace right down there is a Guided Walk around RSPB Langford Lowfields at Collingham near Newark. And if you just want to stop and chill out, head for Clumber Park Hotel and Spa for a Forest Hideaway Spa Day.
Arts and Crafts and Fairs
As far as fairs and fetes are concerned, you’ll find a Flower Power Fair at Holme Pierrepont Hall. Head to the Djanogly Art Gallery for a Craft Showcase from the talented young prospect Suet Yi Yip.
This month Nottingham Comedy Nights return at the Canalhouse, promoted by the great team behind the Notts Comedy Festival, this weekend Tony Hendricks, Josh Howie and Anthony King perform. Tickets are just £4 on the door.
Head to Newark Showground for the UK Motorhome and Caravan Spring Fair 2012. A supernatural overnight vigil called Premonition is taking place at the Galleries of Justice, one of the UK’s most haunted buildings. At Attenborough Nature Reserve you can get the chance to try out top of the range optics equipment in field conditions with expert advice on hand.
