‘Ruddington Rhythm’ Music Night @ The Cottage Hotel
Nov 21 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Ruddington Rhythm is a free, fun and friendly music night, on the 3rd Thursday of every month, at Ruddington’s Cottage Hotel.

It’s organised by singer and guitarist Ron McSweeney. The mixture of performers comes with a mixture of styles: pop, folk, country, easy listening, Americana, blues, and a mixture of instruments: guitars, fiddles, accordions, ukuleles…

It’s all very friendly and welcoming to new audience members and performers alike and it’s free to attend, apart from asking you to buy a drink – perhaps the odd glass of wine, or a pint or two? (If you fancy treating yourself then remember that NCT’s Green 10 bus stops right outside!) There’s also a raffle each month, if you’re feeling lucky?

‘Ruddington Rhythm’ runs from 8.00pm until 11.00pm.

Ruddington Comedy Club – FULLY BOOKED! @ The Cottage Hotel
Nov 22 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Ruddington Comedy Club is a new and fun night at The Cottage Hotel – which is planned to become a regular fixture now it’s evident there is sufficient demand for it!

The Ruddington venue is working in association with Funhouse Comedy to bring top notch comedians to the popular out-of-town venue – meaning no struggling to find a parking space for visitors and an event villagers can walk to.

*** This first ‘Ruddington Comedy Club’ night is already completely SOLD OUT although you can ask to be put on a waiting list for any returns. ***

However, because there has been so much interest following the RUDDINGTON.info promotion, Sue confirms there will definitely now be another one at The Cottage Hotel which has already been organised for Friday 28th February 2020.  You can register your interest straight away but, to avoid any potential confusion, seats for it will not go on sale until Friday 22nd November.

Info about the debut event…

There will be three comedy acts plus a compère. On the bill for this debut Ruddington Comedy Club show will be Tanyalee Davis (from Live at The Apollo & The John Bishop Show) and Howard Read (as seen on The Royal Variety Performance) plus stand-up and magic from Alan Hudson (as seen on Penn & Teller Fool Us). The host is event organiser and Nottingham comedy stalwart Spiky Mike.

Freshly prepared hot food will be available and doors open at 7pm to allow time for those who want to eat to do so. The show then starts at 8:15pm. If you fancy treating yourself to a few drinks too, remember that NCT’s Green 10 bus stops right outside The Cottage Hotel!

Police Beat Surgery @ Ruddington Library
Nov 30 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

One of the local beat team will be attending from 09.30am to 10.30am. Further surgeries will be held on various other days and times in the future and will be advertised a few days before the event.

At other times if you see an officer Rushcliffe Police on patrol in the village, unless actively responding to an incident, they will be very happy to stop and chat about policing matters.

However, please do not wait for the surgery to report any crimes as they should be rung through on 101 to the force control room as soon as you realise an offence has been committed – or dial 999 if a crime is in progress.

Dec 1 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Tea, Coffee & home made Cakes are served from 9am to 3pm in the Education Room, which is next to the lake in Rushcliffe Country Park. It’s a fortnightly fundraiser by The Friends of Rushcliffe Country Park.

Organisers say: “The volunteer bakers and servers are happy to serve you. Being such a popular cafe we would welcome any cake bakers, expenses paid, or any help with serving on cafe open days.”

You can catch NCT’s Green 10C service all the way to our Country Park on Sundays.

The Friends’ Cafe

 

New Style Café Church @ St Peter's Church
Dec 1 @ 9:30 am – 10:50 am

On the first Sunday of every month a New Style Café Church takes place at St Peter’s Church from 9.30am until 10.50am. For those wishing to stay longer, this is followed by Holy Communion.

Organiser Debbie King told us: “We aim to provide something for everyone, from pre-school, through schools, teens, students, families, parents, grandparents, all ages and backgrounds! For those wanting activity on a Sunday morning, there is drama, music, art, crafts, and discussion groups. Also, a quieter area for reflection, space to think, pray, even prayed for.”

If you’re alone, lonely, or at a loose end on a Sunday morning, you’re encouraged to go along and join in – and so perhaps discover others in a similar position. “If new to the village – come to meet people from the local community, find out about our church community in the village and the things we do. If a busy professional or someone curious with questions – check us out, join a discussion!”

Central to the Café Church idea is a short talk on a Bible related topic incorporating film clips or sketches, a time of discussion and questions. “Find out how God and the Bible can help us in our everyday life – not just a topic that’s far out there, not relevant to us – discover that God is someone whom we can meet, and the Bible, a book we can learn from, even integrate into our lives” says Debbie.

All this, alongside coffee, Danish pastries and some good company will hopefully tempt you along to the informal atmosphere of this monthly Café Church at St Peter’s.

Ruddington Village Market @ White Horse Inn, Marquee, Courtyard & Car Park
Dec 7 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

Ruddington’s Village Market takes place on the first Saturday of each month at The White Horse Inn. It’s an initiative jointly run by the pub alongside volunteers from The Ruddington Village Centre Partnership.

Each month around two dozen stalls are set up in and around the popular Church Street pub – offering a variety of goods, produce, plants, confectionery, quality crafts and provisions to take away. These are run by both existing village retailers and popular market traders from across the region. The selection of stalls changes each month, so there are always some surprises. There’s also a stand from a chosen local charity plus refreshments and occasional live performances by local musicians and singers.

To find out who’ll be at the market THIS month please click >>HERE<<.

Since it was launched in February 2019, Ruddington Village Market has generally been well supported each month, even in the rain, however organisers hope residents and visitors alike will keep on coming and spreading the word, to enable it to continue to grow and thrive, and so remain a permanent fixture. Read more >>HERE<<.

Whilst you’re in Ruddington do make sure to browse around our many independent village centre shops, cafés and pubs, too – AND check out all the deals and discounts available with your FREE “Ruddy Good Loyalty Card” >>HERE<<.

The Old Bakehouse Tearoom just around the corner from the market on Church Street is one of those retailers offering anyone who shows their Ruddington Loyalty Card a different special deal each month. Lesley and her team would love to welcome you!

Please tell all your friends to come along on the first Saturday of every month (except January) between 9am and 12.30pm. You and they can leave your cars at home because Nottingham City Transport‘s Navy 3 and Green 10 buses, both stop right outside The White Horse.
