5 Great Things to Do in Nottingham This Week: People Person, Broadway Mystery Film and More

24 April 22

From ice hockey to books on isolation, we've got a proper varied week in Nottingham coming up...

People Person: An Evening with Candice Carty-Williams
When: Tues 26 April, 6.30pm
How much: £15 (including copy of People Person)

Following the success of Queenie, which was named British Book Awards Book of the Year and Debut Book of the Year 2020 (no big deal), Candice Carty-Williams is back with her new novel People Person, which has already won over readers across the country. You can join Candice for this very special event when she stops by Bridlesmith Gate on Tuesday.

On Agoraphobia
Five Leaves Bookshop
When: Thurs 28 April, 7pm
How much: Free to £15

Lockdown has brought agoraphobia to the forefront of social discussion - but even before COVID, the anxiety disorder affected the lives of huge numbers of people. One of these is Graham Caveney, who developed agoraphobia in his twenties. In his new book, On Agoraphobia, Graham discusses managing the condition and learning to live within the narrow limits it imposed on his life, and he’ll be launching the book at Nottingham’s very own Five Leaves Bookshop.

Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox
Rock City
When: Fri 29 April, 6.30pm
How much: £33.19

Sick of hearing the same old music? Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox is anything but samey. Taking older tunes from a wide range of genres - from pop to Britpop - and infusing them with a vintage blend of jazz and swing, this will offer your ears an experience unlike anything else. Tickets are available for the very specific price of £33.19, if you’re interested.

Broadway’s Mystery Film
Broadway Cinema
When: Fri 29 April, 8.30pm
How much: £5

Not sure what to watch? Take the decision-making out of it and drop by Broadway’s Mystery Film screening this Friday. Hand-picked by a member of the cinema’s expert team, this secret film could be anything from a stone cold classic to a forgotten gem - but whatever it is, it’s guaranteed to be well worth your time. Even better? Tickets are available for just a fiver.

EIHL Premier Sports Play Off Finals Weekend
Motorpoint Arena
When: Sat 30 April & Sun 1 May
How much: From £57.50 to £115

Nottingham is already home to one of the finest ice hockey teams in the country, but this weekend we’ll welcome one of the most important ice hockey events too - as The Premier Sports Elite League Playoff Finals Weekend takes over Motorpoint Arena. Featuring the best of the best, this is a one-of-a-kind event that you don’t want to miss - unless you don’t have £115 to spare, of course.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
