Seven Great Things To Do In Nottingham This Weekend (4 & 5 March)

Not sure what’s happening in Nottingham this weekend? Whatever the weather decides to do, we’ve got you covered.

1. Get a taste of America

A traditional American breakfast comes in many forms and you'll be spoilt for choice at Annie's Burger Shack with savoury and sweet options. Breakfast is available on the weekends from 8am to 10:30am. You'll find things like Rocky Mountain Stuffed French Toast, thick-cut toast filled with vanilla cream cheese, homemade strawberry or blueberry compote, butter, and maple syrup, as well as Big Breakfast Burritos filled with sausage, bacon, ham, scrambled eggs, refried beans, potatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms and cheese with Tex Mex garnishes.

2. Celebrate International Women's Day

International Women's Day comes early to the National Justice Museum on Saturday 4 March with two free drop-in sessions from 11am to 3pm available in the museum. Tea Apothecary in the Project Lab explores women working with nature and Object Sharing in the free gallery where a beautiful hand-embroidered piece of work, skillfully created by Annie Parker in 1880 will be shared.

3. Visit not just one, but three free exhibitions

Nottingham Contemporary is currently showing three free exhibitions by;

Charlotte Johannesson | Carolyn Lazard: Long Take | Rosalind Nashashibi: Hooks for you to visit this weekend. 

They even have 12.30 Talks every Saturday throughout their current exhibitions at, yup, you guessed it... 12.30pm. This is a short personal response to the exhibitions given by the knowledgeable team of gallery assistants. They last 15-20 minutes and vary in topic from day to day. Some gallery assistants offer brief introductions to the exhibitions, others talk with passion on a favourite artwork, artist or theme. They are free to attend and there is no need to book, just drop in and stay as long as you like.

4. Wander round the monthly market

The first in a series of monthly markets from Hungry Ghost takes place this Saturday 4 March at Cobden Chambers, off Pelham Street. The free entry gives a great opportunity to explore independent makers and artists + tempting food and drink offerings!

5. Saturday introduction to wine tasting

A day-long food and wine indulgence - sounds like heaven right? This is a great opportunity to spend the day relaxing and learning all about wine in a really fun way. Perfect for anyone who hasn't had any previous wine-tasting experience as you’ll get to try 12 great wines. The session also includes a glass of fizz on arrival and a delicious 2-course lunch. The sessions are run throughout the year by NottsDerby Wine School at the Lace Market Hotel | Cock & Hoop.

6. Jazz it up

Check out the Saturday afternoon session at Peggy’s Skylight. Musicians perform in a more relaxed setting, acoustically, to give you the opportunity to chat, drink & dine. Entry is free - drop in from 12pm but if you want to ensure you'll have a seat, book a free ticket.

7. Cheer on the mighty Panthers

Watching Nottingham Panthers in action is well worth a visit, and this weekend's game between Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers at Motorpoint Arena on Saturday 4 March promises to be an exciting one.

Face-off at 7pm and tickets are available from Motorpoint Arena.
