It's music, more music and, um, some cheese on offer in our city this week...


Let the Sunset
When: Monday 21 November, 6.30pm
Where: The Loft
How much: Free

Nottingham’s newest student-led event is all about music (and more) with a purpose. Kicking off in support of the International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Let the Sunset will see a mostly female line-up, which includes Tracy Luv and Megs, take to the stage for chilled out tunes to raise money for Nottingham Women’s Centre.


"Theatre of Borsch" - Charity Gala Six Course Dinner
When: Tues 22 November, 7pm
Where: Strelley Hall
How much: £75

Fancy some high end Ukrainian snap? Fancy donating a bit of cash to a good cause? This charity dinner sees famous Ukrainian chef, Yevhen Klopotenko, who won Ukraine’s MasterChef in 2015, visiting Notts to cook up a 6-course storm. There’s live music from a Ukrainian folk ensemble and a charity auction too. As you might expect all the money raised goes to humanitarian aid charities working in Ukraine.


Let's Beer - Beer and Cheese Tasting
When: Thursday 24 November, 7pm
Where: Cock & Hoop
How much: £25

David Bowie’s lesser-known banger, Let’s Beer is also a night of top quality drink and cheese tasting, promising a proper treat for the senses. With each guest getting to sample a range of beers matched with carefully selected artisan cheeses, you’ll feel proper fancy - and proper full - by the end of the night.


BBC Introducing in the East Midlands
When: Thursday 24 November, 7pm
Where: Metronome
How much: Free

It’s back again - BBC Introducing are bringing the finest acts from Nottingham and beyond to Metronome for a set of guaranteed future classics. Across a night that begins with Girlband and closes with Gemma Danielle, you’ll get the chance to see the next wave of quality local talent before anyone else. Even better? You’ll get to do so for free!


Jake Bugg
When: Saturday 26 November, 6pm
Where: Motorpoint Arena
How much: £33.44

You might have heard of this lad. Clifton’s finest, Jake Bugg has topped charts, toured the world and created countless absolute belters in the ten years since his lauded debut album. Now he’s returning to his city to perform songs like Lightning Bolt and Two Fingers for you lovely lot. Grab your tickets, show your support and get loud - Bugg is back.


Sisters in Dub
When: Saturday 26 November, 9pm
Where: The Angel Microbrewery
How much: £5-10

Rounding out a very musical week are Sisters in Dub, an all-female Reggae collective made up of Danniella Dee, Cherelle Harding, & DJ Kat. Breaking new ground in a largely male-dominated area of music, these lot are bound to get you on your feet, with their consuming, energetic sound rivalling some of the best in the business.
