Odeon Events Group
February saw us entertained by the Royal Ballet with a Carlos Acosta production of "Don Quixote". As published in the National Press as a RomCom it staged magnificent dancing to the music of Ludwig Minkus. The story had been adapted from the original and seemed to concentrate more on the young lovers than Don Quixote himself but humorous as well! The colourful costumes of the Spanish matadors, gypsies and main characters made up for the production of "Carmen" last year which was very drab. As usual the back stage interviews gave the evening a learning and understanding of what went into the production.
Tuesday 30th April Faust ( opera by Verdi )
Tuesday 11th June Romeo and Juliet ( ballet )
Saturday 27th July Andre Rieu ( concert )

Local History Group
Who knew that Mansfield has its own Fire Museum? The Local History Group went on a visit to find out. The museum is situated behind the present-day fire station on Rosemary Street. It portrays the history of firefighting from early days (1666- the Great Fire of London) to current times. Nottinghamshire has 23 fire stations. The earliest one in Tuxford dates from the 1500s and is still in use today. Guides, Paul and Marlene, showed us round in two groups, enabling us to see the memorabilia, uniforms, helmets and equipment in the British and overseas rooms before bringing us back together in the main area containing the fire engines. And what engines they were, mostly horse-drawn and human-powered, including the private fire engines from the Welbeck, Thoresby and Hardwick estates, and all a shiny red! As we ended our visit with refreshments, it was hard to believe that this hidden gem is run by just four volunteers. They have a free Open Day on Sunday 28th April in conjunction with Radio Nottingham’s Big Day Out. A treat for all ages
Eleven strollers had a nice walk around Brierley Park on a fine, but slightly chilly day,then enjoyed refreshments in the visitors centre. The next meeting is on Monday 22nd April at Pleasley Pit car park, Pit Lane, Pleasley,G19 7PH
The National Trust Group
The National Trust’s Group met for the first time this year on April 1st.We had a most enjoyable day at Gunby Hall in Lincolnshire. The weather was favoured us with a warm spring day so we were able to appreciate a lovely home and very pleasant grounds which included lots of flowers and the promise of bountiful fruits. The next visit is on May 17th to Goddards House in York. This was the previous home of Terry’s Chocolate Family.
