Exam season is officially over and Lingo Magazine’s guide to what’s on in Nottingham is back. This month, we’ve got ice hockey, Chinese New Year celebrations and Refresher Week lined up for you.

Chinese New Year: Brush Painting Workshop – 1 February

Chinese New Year: Tea Ceremony and Guzheng – 5 February


Lakeside Arts is also putting on a tea ceremony to celebrate Chinese New Year so you can discover this beautiful tradition.


Canalhouse Comedy Night – 8 February and 22 February


Head down to the Canalhouse at 7pm on either of these Wednesdays for a night of comedy. These nights tend to sell out so book your tickets in advance here.


Nottingham Vintage Kilo Sale – 18 February

Bisexual Men Exist, Veneet Mehta on being a bisexual man – 19 February

Gig at Percy Picklebackers - 21 February

Catch Lingo's very own Abigail Hannah performing in the city centre! With headliner Paris Paloma, it's sure to be a night filled with acoustic indie and pop tunes. So if you're a fan of this and supporting upcoming artists, get your tickets here.

Being a bilingual family (French mother and British father,) living in France I thought your article was extremely interesting . Have you research on bilingualism ? It seems that when the mother is British and the father French and they both live in France their children seem to be more bilingual than when the mother is French and the father is British . This is what we called mother tongue , isn't it ?
