Nottingham

I had the absolute pleasure of going back up and visiting my old university city, Nottingham, on Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day; myself and a few of my uni friends took a walk around the lake in Wollaton Park, searching for deer and reminiscing over our time at university together, whilst gazing at Batman’s House (Wollaton Hall).    

Afterwards we went to CafĂ© Sobar, where we grabbed a quick bite to eat (I had eggs benedict!) and finally we wondered over to Nottingham Contemporary which has an array of interesting art exhibitions. It’s an arts and educational charity and brilliantly, it has free admission to the public. The exhibition I saw was called ‘The Place Is Here’ and was a collection of work by 30 or so artists about the civil rights of the black population in the 1980s, exploring colonialism, black feminist and what ‘black art’ meant.
