    Grape harvest, Hanwell Wine Estate, Nottinghamshire

    Our grape harvest takes place in October and it’s a fantastic opportunity to involve the local community, old and young alike in vineyard life!

    We welcome volunteers to help us pick grapes and enjoy a lovely day in the great outdoors, ending with a home-made harvest supper. 

    We start to narrow down the potential picking dates at the end of September; click here to join our Grape Picking email list and be the first to hear when the date’s set. The grapes must be ripe and the weather forecast needs to be fine, as we can’t harvest in the rain.

       

    Snips and gloves are provided, but please feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Children are welcome to pick the grapes if they can safely use scissors.  When schools out, there are often other children to play with.

    A warm coat, along with sturdy shoes or boots are recommended – the vineyard can be very windy, the fields can be muddy and the grass is long in patches. All are welcome, but the uneven ground around the vines unfortunately makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our vineyard – fingers crossed for the same sunshine we enjoyed last harvest! Click here to join our Grape Picking email list.

    Taking tea in the afternoon is a tradition that has been enjoyed since the early nineteenth century when the Duchess of Bedford is credited with introducing the custom to fill the long gap between luncheon and dinner.

Afternoon tea is hosted on selected Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons between 2:30pm – 5:30pm (last table booking 4pm).

    The occasion is perfect for small gatherings as well as for birthday celebrations or club and society social meetings. If you would like to arrange afternoon tea for a group of twelve or more people, we welcome private bookings and invite you to contact us to arrange an afternoon that suits your group.

    Our selection of loose leaf teas are sourced by Stokes of Lincoln and our cakes are freshly prepared by Wendy Richardson in Orston, both of which are well renowned suppliers in Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Dementia-friendly swimming sessions now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre

     

     Weekly dementia friendly swimming sessions are now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre to help individuals and carers enjoy exercise in comfortable surroundings.

    Individuals, and families and friends who help sufferers can enjoy sessions every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm.

    There is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy the session and to help launch the class, the first six weeks are free of charge for all attendees.

    The Dementia Swimming Project is part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s and Lex Leisure’s wider health strategy with sessions designed to create a safe and friendly swimming environment.

    Robert Linthwaite, Lex Leisure’s centre manager at Cotgrave Leisure Centre, said: “Dementia swimming sessions build confidence for the individual and their carer – and in a welcoming environment that has great health benefits.

    “It’s all here to make it easy and accessible to enjoy the activity and once people visit us we are confident they will return.

    “Anybody with a memory issue can come to the dementia swimming sessions, it has immense benefits for both the carer and the swimmer.”

    The classes are led by swimmers and carers with trained staff attending poolside to offer guidance and support to enjoy a gentle exercise and social session in the pool.

    Rushcliffe Borough Council’s deputy leader, Debbie Mason, said: “Within Rushcliffe, approximately 1% of our residents are living with dementia.

    “As a council, we want to ensure they are supported with wellbeing opportunities wherever we can.

    “The benefits of swimming are well publicised both in terms of physical health and emotional wellbeing, but it has also been shown to improve the quality of life of those living with dementia.

    “This is why we are partnering with Lex Leisure to offer dementia-friendly swimming at Cotgrave Leisure Centre.”

    There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with one in six over the age of 80 now having a form of the condition.

    For more information on the Dementia Swimming Project visit www.swimming.org/dementiafriendly, contact Cotgrave Leisure Centre on 0115 989 2916 or email Cotgrave@LexLeisure.org.uk.

  • Help with the Grape Harvest at Hanwell
    08:00 -09:00
    04/10/2019-05/10/2019

     

    Grape harvest, Hanwell Wine Estate, Nottinghamshire

    Our grape harvest takes place in October and it’s a fantastic opportunity to involve the local community, old and young alike in vineyard life!

    We welcome volunteers to help us pick grapes and enjoy a lovely day in the great outdoors, ending with a home-made harvest supper. 

    We start to narrow down the potential picking dates at the end of September; click here to join our Grape Picking email list and be the first to hear when the date’s set. The grapes must be ripe and the weather forecast needs to be fine, as we can’t harvest in the rain.

       

    Snips and gloves are provided, but please feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Children are welcome to pick the grapes if they can safely use scissors.  When schools out, there are often other children to play with.

    A warm coat, along with sturdy shoes or boots are recommended – the vineyard can be very windy, the fields can be muddy and the grass is long in patches. All are welcome, but the uneven ground around the vines unfortunately makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our vineyard – fingers crossed for the same sunshine we enjoyed last harvest! Click here to join our Grape Picking email list.

    Kooroon Exhibition: 2-6pm Friday 4th and 10-6pm Saturday 5th October

    October’s Kooroon Gallery offer here at The Old Sorting House includes a section of brand new interpretations of the local mystery emblem the Belvoir Angel. Carved into headstones in churches throughout the Vale of Belvoir and its surroundings areas, the Angels have a very specific look thought to be unique to the area. This design has formed the inspiration for new textile, paper cut, applique, embroidery and folk tale art works created by these two artists.

    Vanessa Stone is possibly best known for her paper cut work but actually has a background in textiles and design. For this exhibition she has revisited her textile roots as well as experimenting with scale in paper cut, going from tiny to extremely large to interpret the Angels.

    PollyWhistle artist Jane Millum has incorporated her usual story based art dolls and applique approaches in her interpretations but also some more intricate needle work through embroidery and English paper piecing in silk.

    Both artists will be exhibiting other work too and on hand to discuss the project and talk through sketchbooks and prototypes.

    In addition Jane will be running a Belvior Angel textile sign workshop from 10 to 1pm and Vanessa a Folky Stencilled Fabric Workshop from 2pm to 5pm on the Saturday. (click on the links for more info and bookings).

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    Snips and gloves are provided, but please feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Children are welcome to pick the grapes if they can safely use scissors.  When schools out, there are often other children to play with.

    A warm coat, along with sturdy shoes or boots are recommended – the vineyard can be very windy, the fields can be muddy and the grass is long in patches. All are welcome, but the uneven ground around the vines unfortunately makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our vineyard – fingers crossed for the same sunshine we enjoyed last harvest! Click here to join our Grape Picking email list.

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    Once again we will be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting a slice of the world’s biggest coffee morning.

    Sign up in advance to bake a cake, and see if you can take the title of Great Croxton Kerrial Bake Off champion, won last year by Pete Stokes. This year, we’re adding a couple of categories to the competiton. As well as “Best Baked Cake” you’ll be able to compete for “Best Bought Cake” and, for younger entrants, “Best Cake Baked By a Baker Under 16”. Three trophies, bags of fun, loads of competitions and games, countless cakes, biscuits and other treats, and lots of coffee, tea, and other drinks. All for a very, very good cause.

    Please sign up in the pub to bring a cake (either home made or shop bought, it doesn’t matter at all) so we know how many entrants we will have. A small slice will be shared by our judges, including last year’s winner. And all the cakes will then be sold by the slice to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

    Please note: our coffee morning is on Saturday, October 5th. Other Macmillan events will be taking place a week or so either side of the designated official day of the “world’s biggest coffee morning”, Friday, September 27th. Please support as many as you can. But mostly ours!

    Kooroon Exhibition: 2-6pm Friday 4th and 10-6pm Saturday 5th October

    October’s Kooroon Gallery offer here at The Old Sorting House includes a section of brand new interpretations of the local mystery emblem the Belvoir Angel. Carved into headstones in churches throughout the Vale of Belvoir and its surroundings areas, the Angels have a very specific look thought to be unique to the area. This design has formed the inspiration for new textile, paper cut, applique, embroidery and folk tale art works created by these two artists.

    Vanessa Stone is possibly best known for her paper cut work but actually has a background in textiles and design. For this exhibition she has revisited her textile roots as well as experimenting with scale in paper cut, going from tiny to extremely large to interpret the Angels.

    PollyWhistle artist Jane Millum has incorporated her usual story based art dolls and applique approaches in her interpretations but also some more intricate needle work through embroidery and English paper piecing in silk.

    Both artists will be exhibiting other work too and on hand to discuss the project and talk through sketchbooks and prototypes.

    In addition Jane will be running a Belvior Angel textile sign workshop from 10 to 1pm and Vanessa a Folky Stencilled Fabric Workshop from 2pm to 5pm on the Saturday. (click on the links for more info and bookings).

    The Viking Challenge attracts more than 1400 riders each year from all over the UK raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. Take a look around and join us on Sunday 6th October for Viking Challenge 2019.

    How it started… 

    In 1995 the staff and parents of Redmile CofE School decided that it would be more effective to organise one big fund raising event than having lots of small ones across the school year (as is typical in many schools). A parent from Redmile came up with the idea of using the local section of the Viking Way, an ancient track-way originally linking Newark and Stamford, as a means of raising much-needed funds for the school. In the first year 98 cyclists completed the circuit, raising £580 – and so The Viking Challenge was born. However no one could have guessed then just how big it would get.

    Viking Challenge Today…

    Now celebrating its 25th year the Viking Challenge

    * attracts over 1,400 riders from all over the country
    * is one of the UK’s largest amateur off road cycle events
    * has had over £500,000 donated for the school and our charity partners since it began in 199
    * needs over 150 volunteers to run and man the event on the day
    * serves nearly 5,000 cakes, bananas and chocolate bars to keep cyclists fuelled up on the way round!

    The event is open to everyone, young and old, teams and individuals, both serious and fun cyclists – and Vikings! The combination of the serious physical challenge with our warm hospitality has proven to be a winning formula; with riders and volunteers coming back year after year.

    Taking in the fabulous Vale of Belvoir countryside riders have access to a route not usually accessible to the general public and with lots of well-stocked refueling stops along the way – our cakes are almost as famous as the challenge itself – it really is a unique cycling experience.

    Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

    Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

    The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

    The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

    Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

    Tickets are available here.

    Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

    Terms and Conditions

    Journeys are planned to take a specific route and can not go off road. Weather dependant. No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.

    Oakleas Rise played a great gig at the Geese and Fountain last year as a duo. Now a trio, as Dale Freeman joins Lesley Curtis and Stuart McLeod, the harmonies and instrumentation are even more delightful. A contemporary mix of country and folk, their self-penned songs meld perfectly with the well-chosen covers. A new CD, little white lies, was released in August 2019, and now the trio are hitting the road.

    This gig is part of “We Shall Overcome 2019” – a whole weekend of activities organised by grass roots musicians and venues to put their music to good use: raising solidarity for organisations helping those who are facing the harsh reality of austerity. The Geese and Fountain will be taking donations on the night for the Grantham Foodbank, and Oakleas Rise have kindly agreed to donate their fee for the gig to the same cause.

    Since May 2015 We Shall Overcome organisers have run more than 900 events in 150 different villages, towns and cities,raising an estimated £425,000 worth of food, cash, clothing, bedding, furniture and electrical goods for those struggling at the sharp end of austerity.

    Please bring donations – either physical items (coats, socks, food, etc) or cash – and we will look to make 2019 the year we finally end the shame of state-inflicted poverty in our communities.

      Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

      Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

      The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

      The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

      Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

      Tickets are available here.

      Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

      Terms and Conditions

      Journeys are planned to take a specific route and can not go off road. Weather dependant. No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.

      Oakleas Rise played a great gig at the Geese and Fountain last year as a duo. Now a trio, as Dale Freeman joins Lesley Curtis and Stuart McLeod, the harmonies and instrumentation are even more delightful. A contemporary mix of country and folk, their self-penned songs meld perfectly with the well-chosen covers. A new CD, little white lies, was released in August 2019, and now the trio are hitting the road.

      This gig is part of “We Shall Overcome 2019” – a whole weekend of activities organised by grass roots musicians and venues to put their music to good use: raising solidarity for organisations helping those who are facing the harsh reality of austerity. The Geese and Fountain will be taking donations on the night for the Grantham Foodbank, and Oakleas Rise have kindly agreed to donate their fee for the gig to the same cause.

      Since May 2015 We Shall Overcome organisers have run more than 900 events in 150 different villages, towns and cities,raising an estimated £425,000 worth of food, cash, clothing, bedding, furniture and electrical goods for those struggling at the sharp end of austerity.

      Please bring donations – either physical items (coats, socks, food, etc) or cash – and we will look to make 2019 the year we finally end the shame of state-inflicted poverty in our communities.

    Hatha Yoga – 9.30

     

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

Afternoon tea is hosted on selected Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoons between 2:30pm – 5:30pm (last table booking 4pm).

    The occasion is perfect for small gatherings as well as for birthday celebrations or club and society social meetings.

    Dementia-friendly swimming sessions now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre

     

     Weekly dementia friendly swimming sessions are now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre to help individuals and carers enjoy exercise in comfortable surroundings.

    Individuals, and families and friends who help sufferers can enjoy sessions every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm.

    There is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy the session and to help launch the class, the first six weeks are free of charge for all attendees.

    The Dementia Swimming Project is part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s and Lex Leisure’s wider health strategy with sessions designed to create a safe and friendly swimming environment.

    Robert Linthwaite, Lex Leisure’s centre manager at Cotgrave Leisure Centre, said: “Dementia swimming sessions build confidence for the individual and their carer – and in a welcoming environment that has great health benefits.

    “It’s all here to make it easy and accessible to enjoy the activity and once people visit us we are confident they will return.

    “Anybody with a memory issue can come to the dementia swimming sessions, it has immense benefits for both the carer and the swimmer.”

    The classes are led by swimmers and carers with trained staff attending poolside to offer guidance and support to enjoy a gentle exercise and social session in the pool.

    Rushcliffe Borough Council’s deputy leader, Debbie Mason, said: “Within Rushcliffe, approximately 1% of our residents are living with dementia.

    “As a council, we want to ensure they are supported with wellbeing opportunities wherever we can.

    “The benefits of swimming are well publicised both in terms of physical health and emotional wellbeing, but it has also been shown to improve the quality of life of those living with dementia.

    “This is why we are partnering with Lex Leisure to offer dementia-friendly swimming at Cotgrave Leisure Centre.”

    There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with one in six over the age of 80 now having a form of the condition.

    For more information on the Dementia Swimming Project visit www.swimming.org/dementiafriendly, contact Cotgrave Leisure Centre on 0115 989 2916 or email Cotgrave@LexLeisure.org.uk.

    ‘Machines’ is the name of the band formed by Don John Maxwell, Dave Mackintosh & Fletch Fletcher

    Don plays a Fender V1 bass and takes on most of the lead vocals. He has had a very active career in music over the years, always bringing in strong harmony vocals and achieving huge success in the 70s & 80s with prog rock band “Canned Rock” (4 albums) and in more recent years with “Maxwell Hammer & Smith” band.

    Dave Mackintosh, ex “DragonForce” drummer, has constantly toured the world with Dragon Force, and after 10 years, 5 albums and countless videos, has finally decided to slow down a little and get some normality back into his life. Dave also has a great vocal range which is essential for the close harmony work Machines incorporate into their show.

    “Fletch” Fletcher is on guitars and vocals. Previously working as both session man and producer, Fletch has also worked in local Hertfordshire bands during his earlier years. His passion for sound and detail on guitar, and his vocal range bring a new dimension to the band’s sound.

    Machines cover: Queen, Disturbed, Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers, Rush, Metallica, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Who to name but a few. And RUSH!!!!!!!!!! THEY didn’t mention rUSH

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    The Genny B (Generous Briton): ‘Breach’ 9.30pm

     

    It was a busy old night last time they played and I know I only caught the end, I know I really rated them, my Diary says “Sounded Amazing! Check out a video here! and decide for yourself. (This is a Facebook Live Video and not my normal HD Quality, but it gives you the Idea)

    ‘Breach’ are a four-piece rock, blues and indie covers band from Derby, comprising of two guitars, bass and drums and three vocalists. The band was formed back in 2014 by members who met through other musical projects, and quickly realised there was the potential to create something special. They play all over the midlands, but this will be their first time in Melton Mowbray. Including artists in their sets such as ZZ Top, Nirvana, The Undertones, Muse, Cream and Radiohead to name a few, you can expect to hear both classic rock greats and modern indie anthems at their gigs. With hits from the last 60 years from their extensive and ever- expanding repertoire there is always something for everyone. They genuinely love what they do, and it always shows.. Their aim is simple… Put on a great show to ensure that the atmosphere will be electric, and the crowd will be chanting for more everytime…

    The Noels Arms: ‘Thin White Dukes’ (David Bowie Tribute) 9.30pm

    Frontman and local legend Paul Schamp (Scampi) and friends return with their tribute to David Bowie throughout the eras. We’re big Bowie fans here at The Noel’s, and so we’re a tough crowd to please when it comes to Bowie covers. His timeless tunes are in safe hands with this band though, whose high quality musicianship really do them justice. We can’t wait

    Melton’s David Bowie Tribute Band, The Thin White Dukes make a triumphant return to The Noels Arms. They  are led by the Mercurial Scampi on vocals, alongside Ken Murray (Guitar) and Neil Eaves (Keyboards and Guitar), the band return to the live scene with two new members in Adam Giblett (Drums) and Keith Brooks (Bass). You may have spotted that many of the band also play in Sticky Fingers, the Rolling Stones tribute band and the Thin White Dukes bring that same love for reproducing classic music yet retaining the spontaneity and joy that live music brings.

    The Thin White Dukes play numerous anthems taken from Bowie’s extensive catalogue of songs and you can expect to hear classics such as Ziggy stardust, Heroes, Rebel Rebel, Let’s Dance, Space Oddity and Life on Mars. Previous outings for the band have been celebrated successes and you’re guaranteed a night of fun, singing and dancing to celebrate the wonderful legacy and music of David Bowie.

    The Video below clearly shows Scampi and the Guys performing at the Noels, but all isn’t as it seems. This Video that has been watched 1800+ Times !!! Was taken at “Jamurary” The Noel’s Arms Jam Night. The new project was coming into fruition so they only performed a few numbers as a teaser of which, this is one of them! See the full Gamut of Bowie Material tonight in their first full gig, with a new Rhythm Section (Drummer and Bass Player)

    Neil asked if I use this video that there should be a disclaimer, so here Goes: Its Facebook Live so not the best quality, because of this its Portrait so the wrong orientation. It features two members who no longer play for the Duke’s. So why use it? Listening to it as I type these words, it raises the hairs on the back of my neck and completely and utterly captures the Bowie performance. This is what it would be like in the 70’s if Bowie played your local! Why not complete that mental picture and come on down in your flares you Rebel Rebel.

    Hopefully we can recapture this beauty in Glorious FULL HD. Neil?

    The Black Swan: ‘Mamma Don’t Allow’ 9pm

    ‘Mama Don’t Allow’ are a four piece band Comprising of Boogie piano, Stand-up Bass, Drums, Guitar and Vocal Playing Good time Rhythm and Blues and Rock n Roll Jump Jive By such artists as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis to Freddie King, Lowell Fulson, Elmore James etc Video pics ;This months Gigs can be found on Facebook under Mama Don’t Allow

    The Grapes: ‘Georgia Lilly’ 10pm

    All I have is from Georgia’s Facebook About:

    About:

    I am a female vocalist available for private parties, weddings and corporate functions.
    I cover classic songs through the years from the 60’s to now.

     

    Doesn’t tell you much does it? Such a talented singer yet not a lot to go on. The Video below is from November 2017. It wasn’t even Georgia’s Gig, she stood in for another singer that night short notice. I know the quality of the video isn’t much, but the quality of the performance is what you need to see! Most of the 1.5K views where racked up within 24hrs. Phenomenal.

     

    The Half Moon: Tiny Tony and Karaoke

    ‘Machines’ is the name of the band formed by Don John Maxwell, Dave Mackintosh & Fletch Fletcher

    Don plays a Fender V1 bass and takes on most of the lead vocals. He has had a very active career in music over the years, always bringing in strong harmony vocals and achieving huge success in the 70s & 80s with prog rock band “Canned Rock” (4 albums) and in more recent years with “Maxwell Hammer & Smith” band.

    Dave Mackintosh, ex “DragonForce” drummer, has constantly toured the world with Dragon Force, and after 10 years, 5 albums and countless videos, has finally decided to slow down a little and get some normality back into his life. Dave also has a great vocal range which is essential for the close harmony work Machines incorporate into their show.

    “Fletch” Fletcher is on guitars and vocals. Previously working as both session man and producer, Fletch has also worked in local Hertfordshire bands during his earlier years. His passion for sound and detail on guitar, and his vocal range bring a new dimension to the band’s sound.

    Machines cover: Queen, Disturbed, Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers, Rush, Metallica, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Who to name but a few. And RUSH!!!!!!!!!! THEY didn’t mention rUSH

    Here’s a little 2112 by Rush, now, Any band that can do a little ‘Temples of Syrinx’ is worth a look in my book.

      Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

      Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

      Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

      The Genny B (Generous Briton): ‘Breach’ 9.30pm

       

      It was a busy old night last time they played and I know I only caught the end, I know I really rated them, my Diary says “Sounded Amazing! Check out a video here! and decide for yourself. (This is a Facebook Live Video and not my normal HD Quality, but it gives you the Idea)

      ‘Breach’ are a four-piece rock, blues and indie covers band from Derby, comprising of two guitars, bass and drums and three vocalists. The band was formed back in 2014 by members who met through other musical projects, and quickly realised there was the potential to create something special. They play all over the midlands, but this will be their first time in Melton Mowbray. Including artists in their sets such as ZZ Top, Nirvana, The Undertones, Muse, Cream and Radiohead to name a few, you can expect to hear both classic rock greats and modern indie anthems at their gigs. With hits from the last 60 years from their extensive and ever- expanding repertoire there is always something for everyone. They genuinely love what they do, and it always shows.. Their aim is simple… Put on a great show to ensure that the atmosphere will be electric, and the crowd will be chanting for more everytime…

      The Noels Arms: ‘Thin White Dukes’ (David Bowie Tribute) 9.30pm

      Frontman and local legend Paul Schamp (Scampi) and friends return with their tribute to David Bowie throughout the eras. We’re big Bowie fans here at The Noel’s, and so we’re a tough crowd to please when it comes to Bowie covers. His timeless tunes are in safe hands with this band though, whose high quality musicianship really do them justice. We can’t wait

      Melton’s David Bowie Tribute Band, The Thin White Dukes make a triumphant return to The Noels Arms. They  are led by the Mercurial Scampi on vocals, alongside Ken Murray (Guitar) and Neil Eaves (Keyboards and Guitar), the band return to the live scene with two new members in Adam Giblett (Drums) and Keith Brooks (Bass). You may have spotted that many of the band also play in Sticky Fingers, the Rolling Stones tribute band and the Thin White Dukes bring that same love for reproducing classic music yet retaining the spontaneity and joy that live music brings.

      The Thin White Dukes play numerous anthems taken from Bowie’s extensive catalogue of songs and you can expect to hear classics such as Ziggy stardust, Heroes, Rebel Rebel, Let’s Dance, Space Oddity and Life on Mars. Previous outings for the band have been celebrated successes and you’re guaranteed a night of fun, singing and dancing to celebrate the wonderful legacy and music of David Bowie.

      The Video below clearly shows Scampi and the Guys performing at the Noels, but all isn’t as it seems. This Video that has been watched 1800+ Times !!! Was taken at “Jamurary” The Noel’s Arms Jam Night. The new project was coming into fruition so they only performed a few numbers as a teaser of which, this is one of them! See the full Gamut of Bowie Material tonight in their first full gig, with a new Rhythm Section (Drummer and Bass Player)

      Neil asked if I use this video that there should be a disclaimer, so here Goes: Its Facebook Live so not the best quality, because of this its Portrait so the wrong orientation. It features two members who no longer play for the Duke’s. So why use it? Listening to it as I type these words, it raises the hairs on the back of my neck and completely and utterly captures the Bowie performance. This is what it would be like in the 70’s if Bowie played your local! Why not complete that mental picture and come on down in your flares you Rebel Rebel.

      Hopefully we can recapture this beauty in Glorious FULL HD. Neil?

      The Black Swan: ‘Mamma Don’t Allow’ 9pm

      ‘Mama Don’t Allow’ are a four piece band Comprising of Boogie piano, Stand-up Bass, Drums, Guitar and Vocal Playing Good time Rhythm and Blues and Rock n Roll Jump Jive By such artists as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis to Freddie King, Lowell Fulson, Elmore James etc Video pics ;This months Gigs can be found on Facebook under Mama Don’t Allow

      The Grapes: ‘Georgia Lilly’ 10pm

      All I have is from Georgia’s Facebook About:

      About:

      I am a female vocalist available for private parties, weddings and corporate functions.
      I cover classic songs through the years from the 60’s to now.

       

      Doesn’t tell you much does it? Such a talented singer yet not a lot to go on. The Video below is from November 2017. It wasn’t even Georgia’s Gig, she stood in for another singer that night short notice. I know the quality of the video isn’t much, but the quality of the performance is what you need to see! Most of the 1.5K views where racked up within 24hrs. Phenomenal.

       

      The Half Moon: Tiny Tony and Karaoke

      ‘Machines’ is the name of the band formed by Don John Maxwell, Dave Mackintosh & Fletch Fletcher

      Don plays a Fender V1 bass and takes on most of the lead vocals. He has had a very active career in music over the years, always bringing in strong harmony vocals and achieving huge success in the 70s & 80s with prog rock band “Canned Rock” (4 albums) and in more recent years with “Maxwell Hammer & Smith” band.

      Dave Mackintosh, ex “DragonForce” drummer, has constantly toured the world with Dragon Force, and after 10 years, 5 albums and countless videos, has finally decided to slow down a little and get some normality back into his life. Dave also has a great vocal range which is essential for the close harmony work Machines incorporate into their show.

      “Fletch” Fletcher is on guitars and vocals. Previously working as both session man and producer, Fletch has also worked in local Hertfordshire bands during his earlier years. His passion for sound and detail on guitar, and his vocal range bring a new dimension to the band’s sound.

      Machines cover: Queen, Disturbed, Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers, Rush, Metallica, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Who to name but a few. And RUSH!!!!!!!!!! THEY didn’t mention rUSH

      Here’s a little 2112 by Rush, now, Any band that can do a little ‘Temples of Syrinx’ is worth a look in my book.

    £10.00 – £70.00

    This ticket entitles you to a tour of the Capability Brown landscape. Please call to ensure there is space available and to check the weather before travel. Ticket valid for 6 months.

    Tours are available as:

    • Tour with Castle entry ground floor only
    • Tour with full Castle free flow and access to the formal gardens
    • Tour with guided tour of the Castle and formal gardens

    Terms and Conditions

    No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre-booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. Please, no animals on the bus.

    Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

    Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

    The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

    The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

    Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

    Tickets are available here.

    Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

    Terms and Conditions

    Journeys are planned to take a specific route and can not go off road. Weather dependant. No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.

      Capability Brown Garden Bus Tour

      Buy Tickets

      £10.00 – £70.00

      This ticket entitles you to a tour of the Capability Brown landscape. Please call to ensure there is space available and to check the weather before travel. Ticket valid for 6 months.

      Tours are available as:

      • Tour with Castle entry ground floor only
      • Tour with full Castle free flow and access to the formal gardens
      • Tour with guided tour of the Castle and formal gardens

      Terms and Conditions

      No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre-booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. Please, no animals on the bus.

      Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

      Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

      The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

      The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

      Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

      Tickets are available here.

      Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

      Terms and Conditions

      Journeys are planned to take a specific route and can not go off road. Weather dependant. No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    Dementia-friendly swimming sessions now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre

     

     Weekly dementia friendly swimming sessions are now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre to help individuals and carers enjoy exercise in comfortable surroundings.

    Individuals, and families and friends who help sufferers can enjoy sessions every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm.

    There is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy the session and to help launch the class, the first six weeks are free of charge for all attendees.

    The Dementia Swimming Project is part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s and Lex Leisure’s wider health strategy with sessions designed to create a safe and friendly swimming environment.

    Robert Linthwaite, Lex Leisure’s centre manager at Cotgrave Leisure Centre, said: “Dementia swimming sessions build confidence for the individual and their carer – and in a welcoming environment that has great health benefits.

    “It’s all here to make it easy and accessible to enjoy the activity and once people visit us we are confident they will return.

    “Anybody with a memory issue can come to the dementia swimming sessions, it has immense benefits for both the carer and the swimmer.”

    The classes are led by swimmers and carers with trained staff attending poolside to offer guidance and support to enjoy a gentle exercise and social session in the pool.

    Rushcliffe Borough Council’s deputy leader, Debbie Mason, said: “Within Rushcliffe, approximately 1% of our residents are living with dementia.

    “As a council, we want to ensure they are supported with wellbeing opportunities wherever we can.

    “The benefits of swimming are well publicised both in terms of physical health and emotional wellbeing, but it has also been shown to improve the quality of life of those living with dementia.

    “This is why we are partnering with Lex Leisure to offer dementia-friendly swimming at Cotgrave Leisure Centre.”

    There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with one in six over the age of 80 now having a form of the condition.

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    Melton Mowbray Library: Diddy Signers Melton Mowbray (Makaton Signing session with a Pirate Theme) 10.30am

    Diddy Signers Melton Mowbray session

    Friday 18th October
    10.30-11.15am
    Melton Mowbray Library

    Pirate theme

    Learning Makaton signing through songs, stories and games/activities to aid communication with babies and children.

    Family session aimed at under 7s and their adult/s. Older siblings welcome.

    £1 per child – no need to book, just turn up and pay on the day.

    Makaton Friendly – all signs used will be compatible with the Makaton system.

    The classes are a fun way to promote the language and learning development of your little one. They will follow a familiar structure whilst introducing key words, new songs and activities each time.

    Beginning with a ‘hello’ song so that the children and adults learn each other’s names, which in turn helps to build friendships within the class. After this, a set of key words will be introduced, following the theme of the week.

    The rest of the class will involve fun activities as a way of embedding new signs and practising ones already learnt, listening to stories that the children can sign along with and lots and lots of songs.

    All the classes will include sensory props as part of the songs and activities, as all children learn in different ways and need to experience different visuals, sounds, textures and environments to understand new concepts.

    At the end of the class you will be given handouts with the signs for the key words on so that you can continue the learning at home by using them as part of everyday conversation.

    Oak facts:

    When you search for Oak in your seven year plus archive of word files (One per week!), My Mac computer seem to prefer “Oakham” which pops up a lot or a band of a similar name Oak, but from Nottinham, Or lastly Comedian Duncan Oakley.

    Top Guys are Oak! Tarn Oxly Guitarist runs a Gig Guide like mine but for Lincoln.

    In the Christmas holidays Xmas Holiday Top Videos charts Oak came in at the 2nd top most of views via this website in 2018 and over 1.2k actual views. Take a look below, they really smash ‘Purple Rain’ by Prince.

     

    ‘Oak’ are a classic three-piece band and have been established for over 15 years with a change in guitarist just over 2 years ago. Playing songs from 60s to modern day. Classic rock and party number like the Time Warp and are very much looking forward to our visit to the Noel’s

    £10.00 – £70.00

    This ticket entitles you to a tour of the Capability Brown landscape. Please call to ensure there is space available and to check the weather before travel. Ticket valid for 6 months.

    Tours are available as:

    • Tour with Castle entry ground floor only
    • Tour with full Castle free flow and access to the formal gardens
    • Tour with guided tour of the Castle and formal gardens

    Terms and Conditions

    No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre-booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. Please, no animals on the bus.

    Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

    Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

    The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

    The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

    Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

    Tickets are available here.

    Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

    Terms and Conditions

    Journeys are planned to take a specific route and can not go off road. Weather dependant. No unaccompanied children. No refunds given to pre booking but journeys can be changed. Booking valid for 6 months from the date of purchase.

    The Noels Arms: ‘Mia and The Moon’ 4pm

    Dubbed “Mesmerising” by Mel B of the Spice Girls, “Visually and Artistically Beautiful” by Rush, and “Fresh New Talent” by Vintage TV, this is the story of two sisters who began singing together as toddlers at National Bluegrass Festivals alongside musical parents – their father performed with Dolly Parton while mother, Kathy wrote the song Kaleidoscopes – which became a song of much importance further down the line… Mary‐Anne’s own songs ‘Solitary Confinement’ and ‘Scenario’ were remixed by Dutch Producer; Marco V in 2009, reaching the top ten dance chart through Radio 1 air-play, while Laura performed worldwide onboard Luxury Cruise Ships, yachts, for hotels and was a guest vocalist at the 2011 New Orleans Jazz Festival. Combining early folk festival influences with the urban, contemporary styles of today, ‘Mia and the Moon’ officially launched in 2012 and have honed a distinctive, gospel sound, reaching out to people of all ages with timeless musical style.

    Through performances on XFactor (The sisters made it all the way to the Judges Houses Stage), ITV, BBC Introducing, Radio 1, Ministry of Sound, National Retail Awards (alongside Myleene Klass), Caffe Nero and a National Acoustic Tour, Mia and the Moon are avid ambassadors for animal rights and have helped raise thousands of pounds for the charities including the ‘International Animal Rescue, RSPCA, PDSA, Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Wildlife Trust. The original prints from the ‘Fall Awake’ sleeve artwork were auctioned during the album launch party with all proceeds donated to Donkey Charity ‘Spana’ this year, and in publicizing these efforts, Laura and Mary-Anne hope to inspire their friends and fans to support animal charities and organisations. (Mailing List: http://eepurl.com/xJSg9).

    Here’s a favourite of mine, simply spellbinding. ‘Midnight In London’

      Explore Capability Brown’s spectacular long ‘lost landscape’ design for Belvoir Castle.

      Brown’s original landscape designs lay largely forgotten in the Castle’s archives for almost 200 years, thought to have been lost in the 1816 fire that destroyed almost half of the Castle. The plans were only rediscovered by chance back in 2014. A subsequent two-year restoration programme, led by the 11th Duchess, has recreated large parts of the landscape as it was conceived by Brown.

      The 4th Duke of Rutland commissioned Brown to produce a plan for the Belvoir Estate, but at the time of Brown’s death in 1783 the scheme remained mostly unfulfilled. A certain amount of it was implemented in the 19th Century by Elizabeth, the 5th Duchess, but the majority of Brown’s extensive vision has only recently been realised by the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

      The guided journey around the gardens is in the comfort of our new electric bus. Narrated by Emma, The Duchess of Rutland, the journey starts at the Castle and continues taking in the parkland’s flora and fauna, as well as exploring new areas and previously unseen woodland and lake views.

      Journeys take from one to two hours depending on the trip taken.

      Tickets are available here.

      Picnic tours are also available – please email reception@belvoircastle.com for more details.

      The Noels Arms: ‘Mia and The Moon’ 4pm

      Dubbed “Mesmerising” by Mel B of the Spice Girls, “Visually and Artistically Beautiful” by Rush, and “Fresh New Talent” by Vintage TV, this is the story of two sisters who began singing together as toddlers at National Bluegrass Festivals alongside musical parents – their father performed with Dolly Parton while mother, Kathy wrote the song Kaleidoscopes – which became a song of much importance further down the line… Mary‐Anne’s own songs ‘Solitary Confinement’ and ‘Scenario’ were remixed by Dutch Producer; Marco V in 2009, reaching the top ten dance chart through Radio 1 air-play, while Laura performed worldwide onboard Luxury Cruise Ships, yachts, for hotels and was a guest vocalist at the 2011 New Orleans Jazz Festival. Combining early folk festival influences with the urban, contemporary styles of today, ‘Mia and the Moon’ officially launched in 2012 and have honed a distinctive, gospel sound, reaching out to people of all ages with timeless musical style.

      Through performances on XFactor (The sisters made it all the way to the Judges Houses Stage), ITV, BBC Introducing, Radio 1, Ministry of Sound, National Retail Awards (alongside Myleene Klass), Caffe Nero and a National Acoustic Tour, Mia and the Moon are avid ambassadors for animal rights and have helped raise thousands of pounds for the charities including the ‘International Animal Rescue, RSPCA, PDSA, Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Wildlife Trust. The original prints from the ‘Fall Awake’ sleeve artwork were auctioned during the album launch party with all proceeds donated to Donkey Charity ‘Spana’ this year, and in publicizing these efforts, Laura and Mary-Anne hope to inspire their friends and fans to support animal charities and organisations.
