NottsNight launches #FirstyFebruary

While many people have done exactly the right thing by partaking in Dry January, we thought that by the end of the month, folk would be bleddy well parched and ready for a beer, which is why we’re designating the second month of 2018 #FirstyFebruary. Every day, NottsNight will tweet a totally different pub for…

Nottingham Beer Festival 2017

At NottsNight we love a good beer festival. And the Nottingham (Robin Hood) Beer and Cider festival is the grand-daddy of them all. This year’s event takes place from 11th-14th October. Many argue that the best beer festivals were back in the days of the old Victoria Leisure Centre. We agree, there was certainly an…
