Make your very own dragon for St George's Day. And create a dragon 'illusion' - see

 Act or crew in a new historical film

See yourself on the big screen or behind the camera with one of those fluffy rabbits (booms?)? Light Films are looking for crew and cast members for their next film.

 See St George in the flesh (and Robin Hood)

On the historical performance theme, to mark St George’s Day, Nottingham City Council are bringing all kinds of St George’s Day-themed events today and tomorrow – including the eponymous hero himself on horseback, Robin Hood and Nottingham’s own dragon! 

 Have a caper in the greenhouse

Just in case you haven’t met them yet, Creative Greenhouse are nice people who support artists and creative businesses based around Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. They have various get togethers and I’m pleased to see that they have a new group in Nottingham, meeting next month (25 May, 10-11.30am) at Capers in Mapperley. The Greenhouse site is definitely worth a visit for details of opportunities and to sign up for their newsletter.

 Share your words with the Lyric Lounge

If you’re a Nottingham based performance poet or spoken word artist, the Lyric Lounge would like to hear from you. Now is the time to apply for three commission places.

 Protect your music from vagabonds

What do you get when you bring together an international reggae star and a music law specialist? A music symposium where you can ask all the questions you’ve ever wanted to ask about protecting your music from would-be vagabonds. (Or you try calling in St George instead).

 See NTU students go pop

Pop up isn’t just for kids’ books (though that’s pretty cool too). This week Nottingham Trent’s decorative arts students opened a ‘pop-up shop’ in a vacant unit in the Victoria Centre.  You can visit Made In Nottingham Trent (MINT) (on the site of the former Pier store space) to buy your very own handmade, student-designed products including jewellery and accessories, glassware, ceramics and textiles.
