Mini golf that packs a political punch, TV stars in acclaimed theatre productions, and Robin Hood roaming the streets once more – it must be another weekend in Nottinghamshire! Once again, there’s all sorts to see and do across the county, so don’t be shy and head out to get involved. See full listings for the weekend here, and be sure to keep in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with all that’s going on in our fair county!

1. Toast at the Theatre Royal

Mixing humour with tense drama, this show – featuring Matthew Kelly – has been cooking up a storm at theatres across the country. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy a slice of the action, when it comes to the Theatre Royal.

Find out more here.

2. Robin Hood Town Tour with Ezekial Bone

Raise the rabble! The world’s most famous outlaw is back on the streets of Nottingham this weekend. Join Ezekial Bone’s band of Merry Men to learn about Nottingham’s fascinating past, on the Robin Hood Town Tour.

3. Bushcraft for Families at Sherwood Pines

Whether you want to take your camera, go for a walk or do a little cycling, there’s plenty to keep you busy at Sherwood Pines.

Enjoy the fresh air and stunning scenery, or enjoy a special event during which the Rangers will teach you to make dens, whittle tools and light fires! Find out more here.

4. Play Mini-Golf – With a Twist!

It’s Mini Golf, but not as we know it!

The New Art Exchange have transformed their gallery into a special, artist built mini-golf course, which is great fun to play, but also challenging and provoking. Tee off on your unique round of golf for just £2!

Find out more about the exhibition here, or take a look at The Guardian’s write up.

5. Explore Bromley House Library

Last weekend, we said a special happy birthday to Bromley House Library, who have been open for an astonishing 200 years!

Tucked away in the city centre, this is a stunning building to enjoy, and it has its fair share of celebrity fans:

Visit for yourself on a Wednesday afternoon for a tour, or this Saturday for their ‘Photography, the Holocaust, and the Visualisation of Difficult Memories‘ Workshop.

Enjoy your weekend!
