Top 5 Things to do This Weekend – 15th – 17th of April


Venues across the county will be throwing their doors open for free this Sunday, as BBC Radio Nottingham’s Big Day Out arrives for 2016 – but that’s certainly not the only thing that’s happening in Nottinghamshire this weekend. We’ve plenty more for you to sink your teeth into, so check out our Top 5 below, or view the full list of what’s on here. Stay in touch by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and enjoy your weekend!

Make sure you rest up ahead of a BIG day out this Sunday courtesy of BBC Radio Nottingham. Heritage attractions across Nottinghamshire – including the National Videogame Arcade, Nottingham Castle, and The Galleries of Justice – will be throwing open their doors to the public for free, and offering special tours and events. See full listings, and more information on what’s happening here.

2. Record Store Day at the Malt Cross

We love our independent shopping, and Record Store Day is an annual feast of fun that’s sure to put you into a spin. Don’t miss this collaboration between Plates Records and The Malt Cross, as they present their alternative/unofficial record store day party, held in the gorgeous Victorian Music Hall. 

3. The ASA National Synchro Champs 2016

The ASA National Synchro Champs is the premiere synchronised swimming event in the domestic calendar, and you’re invited to see all of England’s top synchronised swimming talent in action at the state-of-the-art Speedo Swim Centre in the Harvey Hadden Sports Village.

Join Leisure Land Golf creator Doug Fishbone for a game of mini-golf like no other, on his unique mini golf course, which features 10 thoughtful holes designed by artists.

The man himself will be playing a round at 6pm and 7pm. Find more information here, or give our blog about this fantastic exhibition a read.  

5. Free Friday at Southwell Racecourse!

If the Grand National inspired you last weekend, then you have to trot along to Southwell this weekend, where you can take a flutter on the horses, and enjoy an evening of great live music.
