British Art Show at Nottingham ContemporaryWe’re ending the working week on a wet and rainy note, but it’s now the weekend.

And with so many exciting things to do and see – it will be hard to know where to start. So we’ll try and help you out.

Nottingham is an extraordinarily creative city with great potential – most of us know it – but we need to get the message out there to prove it. There is no better way to do so, than Creative October – now well and truly under way.

Supported by Nottingham City Council, the month-long celebration covers a whole range of creative talents the city has to offer – and it’s worth giving you a reminder of just some of the events taking place during the first week.

If you want to put your own creative talents to the test, look out for events that are part of THE BIG DRAW.  The Campaign is taking place in 20 countries around the world. It aims to encourage and connect visitors to museums and gallery collections, urban and rural spaces – and the wider community – through the medium of drawing in new and enjoyable ways.  A very worthwhile mission – so look out for opportunities to join in.
