Things to do this weekend, 29-30 June 2013
Finally a long week is coming to an end and the weekend is right around the corner. If you are looking for events to fill up your calendar we are always here to save the day. A full list of events can be found via our What’s On page.
Have a Go Archery
As a part of Robin Hood’s pride and heritage all of us should use a longbow on a daily basis. Alright, if not on a daily basis then we should try handling it at least once in our lives. Since not everyone has Robin’s accessories at home there will be a chance to try them out on the Saturday 29th and Sunday the 30th at the Sherwood Forest Country Park.
SOUL SISTER – Inspired By The Music, Life and Times of IKE & TINA TURNER
If you have been waiting for the next musical performance at the Theatre Royal Concert Hall then we have a treat for you. For six days from the 24th until the 29th of June the audience will be able to enjoy the musical inspired by the lives of Ike and Tina Turner. We guarantee that you’ll be humming Tina’s greatest hits all night long.
Nottingham is proud to announce it will host the Armed Forces Day National Event this year on Saturday 29 June at Victoria Embankment. A spectacular programme of events and activities is being planned to honour our Armed Forces past and present that the whole family can enjoy.
Andrew Greenwood Presents: The East Midlands Festival of Transport
30th of June at the Thoresby Park stands for The East Midlands Festival of Transport. This show gives the public and fellow motor enthusiasts the opportunity to walk in and amongst the car displays and get up close to some stunning vehicles. Apart from the breath taking machines there will be a chance to win prizes in several competitions throughout the day. It’s a must in your Sunday schedule.
Galleries of Justice Architectural Tours
The last weekend of June is the cherry on top of the Love Architecture celebration. On Saturday the 29th the Galleries of Justice are opening their doors for visitors to see a special behind the scenes tour of areas of their magnificent building that are not usually open to the public. Galleries of Justice Architectural Tours are a part of Love Architecture Festival 2013. To see other Love Architecture Festival events click here.
RSPB Weekend and Birds of Prey at Rufford
The 29th and 30th of June will be heaven for ornithology enthusiasts. Both RSPB Weekend and Birds of Prey at Rufford will kick-off on the Saturday 29th and while RSPB Weekend will take place only on Saturday, the Birds of Prey at Rufford will last for two days until Sunday the 30th. So if you miss one winged event you can fly right to another one.
The Mansion Uncovered and The Nottingham Heroes & Villains Tour
Notts is a perfect place for adventure seekers. This weekend we have two special treats for outdoors adventure collectors. First is the event called The Mansion Uncovered. It’s a walk around Clumber Park’s missing mansion. It will take you on a journey into the past when the mansion was still there to see. At the moment you can only view traces of the mansions presence since it was demolished in 1928. Nevertheless, there are plenty of other attractive spots at Clumber’s Park’s waiting for you to discover.
Second event is The Nottingham Heroes & Villains Tour. It will let you get to know our city from a whole new perspective – the villain’s perspective. Homicidal medieval Kings, the very first Vampyre, 1200-year old Saxon caves, modern Olympians, evil murderers – and of course the outlaw Robin Hood. Put on a pair of comfortable shoes and sign in for the Heroes & Villains tour around Notts.
