And Paul Smith
including the legendary Rock City (y)
What's with the Nottingham hating? Where are you from that's so much better mate? Here's a few things I think might be worth redeeming from your bumhole cleanse. Theatre - Dame Judy Dench and Ian McKellen started out as pups here. The Playhouse and Theatre Royal still put on interesting stuff most weeks. Literature - Byron, Lawrence and Silliote. Plus we're one of only 20-odd UNESCO cities of literature worldwide. We have loads of good writers here. Cricket - Trent Bridge. Nuff said. Art - Nottingham Contemporary is one of the best new galleries in the UK. Live music - We have about 50 decent venues, including the legendary Rock City. I could go on if I knew what you were into. Admittedly Nottingham Castle isn't quite up to the standards of Edinburgh's. And if you've visited here from the train station then I can see why you might get a bad impression as that part of town is under development.
Do you happen to have one logical reason for all that nonsense? :/
Nottingham is a beautiful city but the "castle" is a trade description nightmare. I don't get the hate for Nottingham or it's people. It is the origin for Boots and and Raleigh bikes. It is the home of the world's oldest professional football club who also gave Juventus their home colours. It's lace industry is known throughout the world and was used to wrap the royal baby up safely. It gave birth to Torvill and Dean and has the best ice arena in the country. It has world class white water canoeing facilities which are used as a base for British olympians. Robin Hood, Nottingham Forest, Stuart Broad, John Hurt, Rebecca Adlington....Nottinghamshire and Proud. Plus lets not forget Shane Meadows who lived in Nottingham and based many of his movies around his own personal experiences including This is England.
