Treat Your Dad to a Father’s Day in Nottinghamshire

Father's Day-01

Father’s Day is fast approaching and this year, Nottinghamshire has done all the hard work for you with lots of days out and thoughtful gifts you can treat your Dad to – no socks allowed!

Newark Festival 

Newark festival will back for a three day extravaganza of music, food, drink and family fun. Taking place on Riverside Park overlooking Newark Castle, it’s set to be a fantastic weekend, just in time for the special day.

Father’s Day aboard Princess River Cruises

If your Dad’s Sunday’s are all about relaxing, how about a roast dinner on a leisurely 3-hour cruise down the Trent?

Father’s Day Bushtucker Challenge

If he’s up for a challenge, The Tropical Butterfly House will be daring Dads to try some chocolatey grubs!  There will also be bird an animal displays to watch on the day.

Sunday Social: Father’s Day Craft Social

For Dads with a creative streak, the Debbie Bryan shop has just the thing with a Craft and Ale workshop. Dads can tap into their artistic side over a pint of  real ale and take home a wirework art piece.

Aegon Open Men’s Tournament 

This year, Father’s Day coincides with a major tennis event in Nottingham. Take him along to the men’s tournament at the top class Nottingham Tennis Centre to see leading international players battle it out on court.

Can’t make the day and looking for a special present instead? What about tickets to a Forest Live gig?  Jake Bugg, Guy Garvey and Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott will be at Sherwood Forest in June. Or if your Dad’s a Nottinghamshire lad then we bet something from Dukki Designs will raise a few laughs!
