Mathew Horne's Nottingham – In Pictures


The Nottingham-born actor spent his early years in vintage shops and ancient pubs, and still visits regularly for Campari cocktails and live music. From a castle-turned-art gallery to the very best arthouse cinema in town, he reveals his favourite haunts in 'the Rose of the Midlands'.



Rock City, Rescue Rooms and Stealth

These three gig venues, which are all connected to each other, have a lot of music heritage. All the big bands play here. I’ve seen David Bowie, Radiohead and the Chemical Brothers at Rock City and I still go now; I’m seeing Foals play next month. Inside Rescue Rooms, there are walls of vinyl and books and exposed bulbs hanging from the ceiling. I spent a lot of time there as a teenager. We used to go down every Thursday night and see how many girls we could kiss. Every May, there’s a great music festival that takes place across all three venues – the Dot to Dot festival. There’s a great atmosphere – I’ll definitely be there.
