Hello and welcome to Nottingham Arts Blog, a website dedicated to the vibrant arts scene in Nottingham and occasionally beyond.

For as long as I can remember I have been a passionate supporter of the arts, whether it be large-scale productions, world class exhibitions or grassroots projects. When I am not at the theatre or an exhibition, you will often find me with my nose in a book and I count Virginia Woolf, George Orwell and Nottingham’s own D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe among my favourites.

As well as writing about events in Nottingham I also love to travel, particularly in central and eastern Europe so you may see the odd travel article popping up.

I always welcome any feedback you have so please feel free to comment on my articles. And if you would like me to review a show or would like to contribute as a guest blogger then please get in touch.
