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.

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.heroes

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.
