What’s on in Nottingham? 7 events to try this week


This week, there are a lot of events in Nottingham involving tasting different types of alcohol so we’ve included these and added a Chinese tea session, comedy night, film screening, and an Indian dance lesson to balance things out.


Mon, 12th June – 7:45pm – Should I stay or should I go? – The Maze 

We love the set up for this show but we bet it’s terrifying for the performers! 12 acts compete in comedy’s answer to Britain’s Got Talent and the X-Factor. Each does 2 minutes, then audience judges vote on who to keep on and who to send off!

Celebrate National Bourbon Day… with Gin.

Weds, 14th June – 6pm – Burleighs Takover – Last Chance Saloon

For some reason, a load of venues in Nottingham have decided that this is the perfect day to do drink tastings – not that we’re complaining! We’re starting with this event at an independent venue with a focus on bourbon and bacon.

Burleighs UK Brand Ambassador, Henry Yates will be delivering a unique behind the scenes look at Burleighs with some unique fresh off the still samples that you definitely won’t have tried before as well as going through the histoy of Gin and all of the incredible Burleighs expressions.

Beer Tasting

Weds, 14th June – 7pm – Take a journey through craft beer – Purecraft 

We’re big fans of this place – the staff are always friendly and great with giving beer recommendations. And we can never resist their food menu!

Purecraft’s tasting sessions include a tour of their “Theatre of Beer”, an introduction to hops,malts, yeast and the variety of beer styles. Oh, and of course most importantly – the opportunity to taste a range of beers. We suggest giving Purecraft a quick call if you’d like more details about what type of beer you’ll be tasting.

Tip: We’ve heard Purecraft is doing a Father’s Day Tasting special so if you’re still looking for a gift, get in touch with them!

Whisky Tasting

Weds, 14th June – 6:45pm – Glenfiddich Whisky Tasting and Distillery Talk – The Bakehouse

Before we talk about this event we have to say – this place was on our radar for a while. We finally got round to ordering a Sunday Roast here the other weekend. The Verdict: Drool-worthy.

Anyway – back to the event. The Bakehouse will be hosting an evening of whisky tasting and discussion focusing on the fantastic Glenfiddich Distillery. The evening will include a history and talk about the distillery as well as plenty of Whisky to drink. They will have the original 12yr, 15yr and 18yr as well as an extra special surprise…

Film Screening

Thurs, 15th June – 8pm – Hellraiser – The Savoy

Based on Director Clive Barker’s visionary novella The Hellbound Heart, and introducing us to some of the most iconic and inventive antagonists in cinema, Hellraiser is the ultimate 80s body horror romp.

This is the cautionary tale of Frank, a self-indulgent criminal who gets more than he bargains for when he solves the Lament Configuration – an intriguing puzzle box he purchases from a Moroccan merchant – and opens a portal to Hell!

Thurs, 15th June – 7pm – Chinese Tea Meditation – August Moon Tea Studio

We’ve been to quite a few events at the August Moon Tea Studio – most recently a session where we also had treatments from Arbonne and Eve’s Temple. The studio is a calming oasis in the City centre and every time we’ve visited we’ve left feeling 100 X more relaxed than when we arrived!

This session is perfect is you want have a taste of what August Moon offers. A tea session is more relaxing and social than their formal tea ceremonies.  Using Chinese tea sets (most of which are handmade or hand painted) your host will show you authentic Chinese tea preparation. She will also share her knowledge about tea and it’s history.

The whole experience is relaxing and friendly and the teas are exclusively sourced from China by August Moon.
