    Exploring the three very different exhibitions at Nottingham Contemporary

    The Nottingham Contemporary art gallery is a staple of the city’s cultural landscape. The building itself is an elegant piece of architecture, and inside plays host to a range of thought-provoking exhibitions and events throughout the year. I was delighted to be invited to experience the current offering of art work, and try the food in their cafe  - I’m a sucker for a sculpture and a snack!

    Theatre Review: Moonlight and magnolias at Nottingham Playhouse

    Having been crowned ‘Regional Theatre of the Year’ in 2019, Nottingham Playhouse have set the standard pretty high in the past couple of years. We’re delighted that their latest production Moonlight and Magnolias falls nothing short of the brilliance we’ve come to expect – a laugh-out-loud riot which doesn’t shy away from a sensitive and intelligent discourse on representation within popular culture.

    Celebrating Chinese New Year, COSMO style

    Let’s be honest, when isn’t a good time to go to a buffet? Here at the Visit Notts office, we’re always down for unlimited-food-at-one-set-price when the offer is temptingly wafted under our noses, and come rain or shine, Nottingham’s COSMO World Buffet has always been there to help us get through the January blues.

    Trying out Zero Latency's mind-blowing Engineerium VR experience

    If someone asked you, “How would you like to walk around a dark room, blindfolded with a futuristic backpack on for 15 minutes”, what would you say? No? Let me rephrase that. How would you like to explore a world where up is down and down is up, where the laws of physics are optional, where flying whales and parrot rays have replaced the birds and glowing blue orbs guide you ultimately to an ancient alien temple?
