Or the city's connection with Alfred Hitchcock? You will look at some of the literary and cultural 'footnotes' that make a connection with Nottingham. You may be surprised!

Comments from previous participants on a Gold Star Guides virtual tour:

Well, that was just wonderful. I am really enjoying the whole thing. Your delivery is superb. Very clear and engaging. My attention did not wander for a moment. Looking forward to next week.

Really very much enjoyed your talk this morning. Very well researched.

I've so enjoyed this. You really know your stuff Felicity. Fabulous - kept me hooked all the way through.

I would highly recommend Felicity of Gold Star Guides to anyone. Whatever your interest in history is, she will fascinate you with facts and tales from the past, leaving a smile on your face!
