Cromford Mills is to host 101 Legendary Whiskies, a book talk and whisky tasting evening with author and whisky aficionado Ian Buxton on Thursday from, 7pm-8.30pm.

Join Ian for an evening of whisky, wit and wisdom.

Explore lost, luxurious, living and legendary whiskies – extraordinarily hard to find, absurdly expensive, ridiculously rare and even a few household names, all with their own unique stories. The talk will be accompanied by several whisky tastings. Ian will also be signing copies of his books following the talk.

Ian Buxton has been marketing director of a world-famous single malt, consultant to more distilleries than most folks have had drams, built several award winning visitor centres, written a variety of articles and books, and – apparently without noticing – bought a derelict distillery.

101 Legendary Whiskies will take place in the Gothic Warehouse at Cromford Mills. Tickets cost £20 (includes whisky tasting).

Drivers’ tickets are available for those who are driving and cost just £10 (excludes whisky tasting).

Advance booking is essential as places are limited. To book, please phone Cromford Mills on 01629 823256 or email events@arkwrightsociety.org.uk

n Tickets have now gone on sale to see Matthew Kelly starring in Richard Bean’s play Toast when it comes to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal next year.

Snapdragon Productions presents this touring version of the play, starring Olivier Award winner Matthew Kelly, which can be seen at the venue from April 4-9. 

Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else.

But this shift is going to be different.

Because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages...   

From the writer of the international hit One Man, Two Guv’ nors, Richard Bean’s

brilliantly observed drama stars Matthew Kelly.

After receiving huge critical acclaim in London in 2014 and prior to a New York engagement, where is will be opening the prestigious Brits off Broadway festival,

this funny and moving play now comes to Nottingham for one week only.
