Things to do this weekend, 23-25 September 2011
This weekend there’s plenty of intriguing and entertaining things to do around Nottinghamshire. We start with the bizarre and work our way out through the best of the events taking place.
Nottingham Mushroom Festival, Carluccio’s Nottingham – Do you love mushrooms? Yes me too and until 10 October you can try a tempting selection of seasonal mushrooms. You’ll also be able to pick up truffles to cook at home for a special treat.
Happy as Larry, Nottingham Playhouse, 23-24 September – what really makes us happy? An innovative performance by an Australian choreographer explores this theme in a funny, playful and poignant look.
Purple Flag Week, Charity Twilight Walk, Old Market Square, Nottingham – celebrate Nottingham at night with a charity walk around the city. Meet by the left lion (as usual eh?) and wear purple.
Paper Craft Workshop and Beginners Sewing Workshop, Debbie Bryan Studio, Nottingham – a couple of excellent workshops giving you the opportunity to learn more at this boutique venue in Nottingham’s Lace Market.
Guided walk around Attenborough Nature Reserve, Saturday 24 September – as autumn begins this is a great time to join Beeston Wildlife Group for a guided walk around this beautiful reserve.
It’s A Knockout Fundraiser, Highfields Nottingham, Saturday 24 September – this humorous take on the 70’s game show is all in a good cause for Nottinghamshire Hospice. Get a team together or go along to support.
Magdala Opera, Thoresby Hall Riding Stables, Sunday 25 September – all time operatic favourites performed by national and international soloists, with Tenors, Sopranos and much more.
Acker Bilk, Mansfield Palace Theatre, 25 September – the now almost legendary jazz soloist is at Mansfield’s Palace Theatre on Sunday night.
Wysall Food Fair, Wysall, Sunday 25 September – Celebrating British Food Fortnight, you’ll find a huge variety of local produce, from bread to cordials and sausages to ice cream.
Clumber 10K, Clumber Park, Sunday 25 September – billed quite rightly as one of the most picturesque courses in the country this is a very popular event with a wonderful family atmosphere.
Whatever you’re doing, have a great weekend everybody and enjoy getting out and about in the autumn fresh air.
