Bank Holiday Weekend in Nottingham
Saturday 25 May - Monday 27 May 2019, 11am - 5pm
Step back in time at the beautiful Bolsover Castle this weekend and immerse yourself in medieval life. Arrows will fly and swords will clash as knights battle it out in a spectacular sporting contest, and budding warriors can get involved in the dramatic displays by joining in with drills, experience medieval combat in a kid’s battle. Those less inclined to active service can learn all about life at the time in the encampment, where characters from the middle ages will bring history to life, or try on a knight's armour for size.
Dot to Dot
Sunday 26 May | Various locations across the city
Proof that you don’t need to pitch a tent in the mud and pay through the nose for a pint of warm lager from a plastic cup to enjoy that festival feeling. If music is your thing, then Dot to Dot will be right up your street. Always one to get the city buzzing, this is the day to explore some of Nottingham’s legendary venues, get to know the excellent local music scene, and spend a rare Sunday dancing the night away. Headlining the day, Crystal Fighters will be spreading the summer vibes with their uplifting, sun-drenched indie pop, and with such a fantastic reputation for unearthing the hottest new talent, you’re sure to stumble across some off-the-radar amazing act you'd otherwise have missed.
A wonderful week of shows and workshops for children and their grownups kicks off on Sunday at the Wheee! International Children’s Theatre and Dance Festival. There’ll be lots of arts and craft activities to get involved with plus outdoor theatre and dance performances. Don’t miss the chance to explore the
Architects of Air's Luminarium – a spectacular, immersive art structure full of labyrinthine tunnels and cavernous domes of iridescent colour and light. These brilliantly playful structures capture the imagination of children and adults alike.
