Short Film Screenings

Tues, 31st October – 7pm – We Are The Weirdos – Broadway Cinema

Looking for something a bit different to your usual horror film screening? This Halloween, The Final Girls present a selection of shorts from some of the most exciting new female voices in genre cinema.

An Opera Taster

Tues, 31st October – 7pm – Opera North – Whistle Stop Opera – The Malt Cross

Never been to the opera before and want to see what it’s all about? Not sure if opera is for you? Or maybe you love it and this would be the perfect way to spend a night in the pub. This is your chance to see Opera North do a performance which compresses the power of opera even more tightly into a half-hour packed with laughter, deceit, love and tragedy. Oh, and it’s FREE!

Let your artistic side out – with a Halloween twist!

Tues, 31st October – 7:30pm – Zombie Life Drawing – Spanky’s

This is not a traditional, quiet life drawing class. Guided by a (non-zombie) art tutor, you’ll be drawing, sketching or painting a member of the undead. But be warned, zombies have been known to attack…

We’ve heard that the special effects team have some tricks up their sleeve and that both fancy dress and crows participation are highly encouraged. If you’re looking for an unusual way to spend Halloween – this sounds perfect!

Try Out Local Producers

Thurs, 2nd November – 6pm – Nottingham Food Assembly Free Taster Event – Primary

Plus there’s a free organic sausage making and take home workshop. You don’t get that everyday…

On top of all this, the Small Food Bakery will be selling delicious suppers from 5pm for £5 until they run out. We’re big fans of this bakery so recommend you get there in time!
