What's On this weekend in Nottingham - Visit Nottinghamshie
As the nights get slowly lighter and the mornings a little brighter we’re feeling in the mood to get out and explore. Luckily, there are plenty of great events taking place across Nottinghamshire this weekend, from a fantastic music festival which will take over venues across the city to delightfully frightful evenings at the theatre and after-dark adventures on horseback. There are lots of things happening throughout the county, so have a gander at some of our favourites below or browse our What’s On calendar for more. 

If you’re feeling the pinch and looking after the pennies this weekend why not head to Lakeside Arts where you can get stuck in trying out some free Chinese arts and crafts as part of their Chinese New Year celebrations, or enjoy a free family-friendly screening of Coco at New Art Exchange. You’ll find loads more ideas for brilliant days out that won’t break the bank on our Free Days Out and Ten things to do for under £10 guides.

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!
