Stars from big to rising are in the city over the next seven days...


Matt Maltese @ Metronome
When: Monday 26 September, 7pm
Where: Metronome
How much: £14

One of the UK’s most exciting indie musicians graces the Metronome stage this week, continuing the venue’s run of attracting top quality talents to Huntingdon Street. In the first gig of his world tour, Matt Maltese will bring his unique sound to Nottingham before jetting off to France, the United States, Canada and more. 


Young Creatives Awards Showcase
When: Thursday 29 September, 7pm
Where: Metronome
How much: Free

After hosting BBC Introducing last week, Metronome is also establishing itself as a hub for spotlighting the next big talents - this time with the Young Creative Awards Showcase. Headlined by the incredible Rob Green, and also featuring Ellie Stainsby, Oscar Marshall and Jack Chapman, this will give audiences a vibrant snapshot of the issues occupying the minds of our city’s young creatives. 


An Evening with Stuart Pearce
When: Friday 30 September, 8pm
Where: Royal Concert Hall
How much: £17.50 - £92.50

We feel like this guy needs no introduction - he’s probably Nottingham Forest’s finest ever player, after all. He’s also a former England U21s manager and Premier League coach, making him one of the most in-the-know minds in the world of football. Now’s your chance to hear from him, in person, right here in the city where he became a legend.


Marine Store Dealer/Bloodworms/Scratchcard
When: Saturday 1 October, 8.15pm
Where: The Old Bus Depot
How much: £5

It’s not often you get the chance to see one band for just a fiver, never mind three - but the gang at The Old Bus Depot are making it happen. In brand new superduo Scratchcard, the goth post-punk-influenced Bloodworms and the delightfully singular Marine Store Dealer, this promises to be a unique night full of unique artists. And, again, all for just a fiver.


Not Taking it Lying Down
When: Saturday 1 October, 1pm
Where: Old Market Square
How much: Free

Are you angry about the rising cost of living? Do you want your voice to be heard? You’re not the only one - in fact, hundreds of like-minded people will be taking over Old Market Square to demand more from those in power, so that we can afford to power our homes.


Michael Palin: 'From North Korea Into Iraq'
When: Sunday 2 October, 7.30pm
Where: Theatre Royal
How much: £35

Another legend who needs no introduction is Michael Palin - the actor, comedian, writer, television presenter and explorer extraordinaire. Never afraid of a challenge, Palin has travelled to all corners of the globe - and, for one night only, he lifts the lid on what it was like to journey through two countries that have had their fair share of challenges in modern history.
