Museum and Gallery Diary

Oh My Nottz Diary pages are going through the most bizarre changes that you can imagine.

All the events have been taken down, because ...

... nothing is ‘actually’ happening across Nottz ...

... well ‘actually’ anywhere ...

... but there are going to be lots of ‘virtual’ things happening ...

... just as soon as people can get them up and running.

We will be posting those events as soon we are made aware of them. If you are hosting a virtual event and you want a bit of extra publicity the send us a link.

City of Caves
The rumours have it that Nottingham is wriggled with caves. Deep cellars with bricked up access to passages that link, maze like, via dark, dank corridors, to every property over 150 years and even provided a secret escape route for the Duke of Wherever to get from the Castle to his plie at Wollaton Hall every time the local population saw fit to do a bit of roiting.
