We’re still recovering after eating our body weight in Easter chocolate but we think we’ll be ready in time for the cake based event later this week! Other events in Nottingham include an art exhibition preview, a play, live music in a coffee shop, and 3 academics in pub trying to explain their PhDs over a pint…



Weds 19th April – 7:30pm – The Bear – Nonsuch Studios 

We love Nottingham Playhouse and The Theatre Royal but we also love to try out smaller, less well known venues. Nonsuch is a great space in the city centre and frequently hosts intersting and unusual events. This week, Spyridon theatre company will be presenting an adaptation of “The Bear” by Anton Chekhov. “A Joke in One Act”.
