Stones in His Pockets

When? Tuesday 23 July - Sunday 28 July, 7:30pm  
Where? Royal Concert Hall
What? Imagine having a whole Hollywood movie shot in Nottingham (wait, that sort of happened with Outlawed). Picture that, and then imagine it happening in a Father Ted-esque rural town in Ireland. This show follows two village locals employed as extras for the film, as they amble through filming. It’s performed only by two actors, who wear lots of different hats/wigs in order to cover the whole film. Not only does it sound like a right laugh, but the play has won numerous awards including both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy. 
How much? £16.50-£33.50

The Perfect Gin & Tonic Tasting Event

When? Tuesday 23 July, 6:30-8:30pm
Where? The Pillar Box
What? At the moment the weather is switching between being super hot and slightly chilly. But you don’t need the weather as an excuse to drink a classic G&T. This masterclass will show you how to create the best combo of the two. Hayman’s gin’s Brad and Franklin and Son’s tonic’s Jay will give advice from their respective ends of the beautiful drink making process. Maybe once and for all the best G&T can be decided upon, so get down and try lots of the good stuff.

Pete McKee Exhibition

When? Wednesday 24 July - Sunday 28 July, 10am-7pm  
Where? Rough Trade
What? Most of you lot probably only saunter down to Rough Trade to get your records and CDS. You might even go and see the odd cheeky gig now and then. But if you’re into your art, Pete McKee is putting on an exhibition of his work. His pieces are fun and thoughtful, and he’s done stuff in the past for Noel Gallagher, Clarks, and even our lad Paul Smith. He’s planning to do a talk and a book signing and all. Not only that, but he’s even hinted that he might whack out a mural somewhere. We love a grammable mural.
How much? Exhibition free, talk £5

What? Have you ever wanted to know how to make panzerotti? Or do you fancy just giving it a bash? If you haven’t heard of it, panzerotti is basically a small calzone. This class by the Deep Fried Calzone Club will teach you how to make the classic mozzarella and basil flavour. It is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, so all baby calzone lovers can rejoice. They advise arriving with an empty stomach, but our stomachs are already growling at the thought of making ‘em and scoffing ‘em.
