The closing date for entries to the first ever Southwell & District Lions club Photographic Competition has now passed and we'd like to thank all those who entered photos.

Seventy outstanding professional singers and players will gather in Southwell over the August Bank Holiday weekend (24th to 28th August) to take part in the fourth annual Southwell Music Festival.

It's the centenary of Lions clubs worldwide this year and Southwell Lions photo competition marks the occasion, with the theme of 'anything & everything old'.

Newark will be transported 370 years back in time on 30th April and 1st May to re-fight the battles which shaped the future of England.

Plan a great day out for the whole family, from tiny tots to big kids, with plenty to do whatever the weather at the Nottinghamshire County Show at Newark Showground on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May. Advance tickets cost £10 and accompanied children under 17 years go free!
