There's a noticeable chill in the air as we get into November, but don’t worry - across Nottinghamshire there’s plenty of events coming up this weekend to help you resist the lure of cosy blankets and the urge to huddle up indoors and hibernate! 

A special mention goes out to the Chateaubriand and Wine Night at Hart’s Nottingham, which promises a luxurious four-course evening meal paired with a bottle of Chateau Violette Moulis 2014. The 30th Anniversary Celebrations and Irish Night - A Celebration of all-weather racing at Southwell Racecourse also offers a wonderful night out with a three course meal, a charity raffle and a Q+A session with TV presenter Derek Thompson and Grand National winning jockey Bob Champion. Also well worth a visit is the Malt Cross Heritage Tour, a fascinating tour of the Victorian music hall and the sandstone caves below.

Have a look at some of our favourite events and things to do below or browse our What’s On calendar for much more. 

Don’t forget, if you are out and about having a great time in Nottinghamshire, you can use #lovenotts to share the love and connect with us via our TwitterFacebook or Instagram!
