Home ed family bowling meetup, city centre, once a month

Date: a Wednesday afternoon, once a month in term time.

Area: Nottingham City Centre, near Lace Market tram stop.

Age range: Mixed, including some parents!

This is a mixed ages social event. Some parents bowl along with their young people but others sit and chat whilst keeping an eye on their young people. The emphasis is on having fun and meeting other families. It’s a great activity for new people to start with.

The bowling alley can be a noisy place and has coin operated games machines with flashing lights and loud noises, which can be distracting or upsetting for some.

Booking: Book in advance. To get times, dates and price options, email the organiser. Price depends on how many games you book for.

Email: bowling at non-school-nottingham dot org dot uk.

Children’s Tap Jam, Netherfield, Wednesday 4 May

Dance participation event mainly for children, with live music, at Loco Youth Centre in Netherfield, Nottingham, on Wednesday 4 May 2016, free. Tap shoes available to borrow. Dance, or watch and listen.

Flyer for the children's tap jam. For text, see blog.
(click on flyer pic for bigger view, or see below for transcript of text.)

5pm till 6pm. Maybe arrive slightly early if you need to find yourself some tap shoes.

This is actually the last in a series, but you don’t need to have been to the previous ones to come to this – beginners still welcome.

Parents & carers are welcome to join in.

Here’s a page about it. (The page says 5pm till 5.45, so please note that for this final one it’s a slightly extended format, 5 till 6.)

Venue: Loco Youth Centre, 139A Victoria Road, Netherfield, Nottingham, NG4 2PD.

Tip from someone who’s been there: “From Colwick Loop Road, go over the old railway line and it’s the next building on the right”.

Youth Centre home page including a map.

Nearest bus stop: seems to be “Victoria Road” on the red route 44, about 500m from the Youth Centre. If anyone knows different, please comment.

Here’s a photo of the Youth Centre (possibly an old one, so it might not look exactly like this now).

As with the all-ages Tap Jam last weekend (much enjoyed by those who went!), this isn’t a home ed event as such, just a cool thing which some of us will probably go to 🙂
