Father's Day 2019 in Nottinghamshire

It's not always easy to think of an original present for dad on Father's Day. You've given him enough socks, books, golfing gear and novelty gifts to last a lifetime, so this year why not whisk him away to Nottinghamshire? Over the weekend you will find plenty of events for the whole family to enjoy - below are some of our highlights but you will find plenty more inspiration on our What's On page.

1) A treat for dad at Byron's Brasserie

Take time for a meal with loved ones this Father's Day. Byron's Brasserie, at the beautiful Colwick Hall Hotel, is hosting a Father's Day Lunch featuring a variety of pretty awesome favourites, from homemade pork and chicken liver pate, to pan fried sea bass, and irresistible sticky toffee pud. Alternatively, if you’d prefer something a little different to impress dad, choose Byron's Brasserie's ‘May The Fourth Be With You’ Star Wars themed afternoon tea menu. 

Lunch is served from 12noon to 3pm, and afternoon tea from 12-6pm in the delightful Byron’s Brasserie or Grand Ballroom.

2) Legends Weekend - Father's Day at Bolsover Castle

Calling all legendary dads, superhero mums and little ones! This Father's Day weekend, you are invited to Bolsover Castle for a fun day out, bursting with activities. Learn how to become a knight or princess, enjoy fascinating falconry displays and watch tantalising tales of chivalrous battles and fearsome quests. You'll also get the chance to watch an interactive play and sharpen your swords for a Father's day to remember.

3) Make dad a happy papi at Las Iguanas 

We'd all love to whisk dad off on a five-star all inclusive holiday of a lifetime wouldn't we?! For most (us included!), this is a little out of our price range, so why not experience some sunny Latin American vibes at Las Iguanas Nottingham this Father's Day.

Every dad gets a free bottle of beer when they order a main course from the a la carte menu. We recommend enjoying the free beer with Las Iguanas' award-winning fajitas, Xinxim, or Havana Club & jerk BBQ pork ribs. Plus, kids eat free when they bring a grown up!

4) A weekend of live music at Newark Festival 

Set on the banks of the River Trent, the Newark Festival is perfect for a Father's Day getaway. Whatever dad's taste in music, he will find it amongst the impressive line-up of acts across the weekend. Friday night is party night with a performance from super-talented singer-songer, Becky Hill followed a DJ set from chart-topping duo, Sigma, while indie stars Razorlight, Lightning Seeds and The Feeling will be taking to the stage on Saturday. Spend quality time together as a family at the free family fun day which takes place on Sunday and includes music, entertainment and a fireworks display.

5) Flame grilled fun at Ye Olde Bell

All dads like to think of themselves as true pit masters and guardians of the BBQ right? Well this Father's Day, tell dad to hang up his trusty tongs and treat him to a hearty BBQ  at the lovely Ye Olde Bell Hotel and Spa, situated in the quaint village of Barnby Moor in Retford. There will also be a traditional steel brass band performing.

6) Enjoy an ale or two with dad 

Nottingham Craft Beer Week is back and we think tickets to the two-day festival taking place in Sneinton Market over the last two days of the week (Friday 14 and Saturday 15 June) would make a top Father's Day prezzie! You and dad will be able to sample beer from a huge range of international and local breweries, enjoy live music and lots more.

Other activites during Nottingham Craft Beer Week - which starts on Saturday 8 June - will take place at bars and bottle shops around the city including Bunkers HillCanalhouseCock and HoopCrafty CrowEmbankmentFox and GrapesKean’s HeadLincolnshire PoacherMalt CrossPoppy and PintSouthbank CityStratford HavenYarn and more.
