Things to do this weekend, 27-29 April 2012

Theatre Royal Nottm exterior night time 2009

Well you wouldn’t believe May was virtually upon us as the rain seems set in for another week. Here are my top five things to do this weekend:

All About Allen: on Sunday there’s the last of Woody Allen’s comedies in the series at the Broadway Cinema. The Purple Rose of Cairo stars Mia Farrow and Woody Allen himself.

Focus Gallery Exhibition: located on Derby Road a new exhibition opens this weekend with new paintings, ceramics and jewellery from some of the UK’s finest artists and makers.

Tribute to the V-Force at Newark Air Museum: the third of the museum’s V-Force reunions looking at the amazing Victor and Vulcan Aircraft. Includes displays and memorabilia.

Springhead Brewery’s 1st Annual Beer Festival: features over 40 quality real ales and ciders as well as food and entertainment. Beer tokens with a half-pint at £1.25

Magic Lantern Tour: Join Ezekial Bone as he takes you through the Theatre Royal and the intriguing history that has taken place at this fantastic venue.

All of these listed events have a strong indoor element to keep you nice and dry but if you don’t mind getting a little wet, head out to one of our lovely country parks and get some fresh air!

And from Twitter:

@VisitEngland: Visit @LakesideArts and see the first major exhibition of Edward Burra’s work in over 25 years! http://t.co/UrWOzJYg

@dineRestaurants: Did you know that the Arboretum in #Nottingham will be 150 years old this year? Another reason why we #lovenotts!
