That’s surely the recipe for fun days out this weekend and, as usual, the Mansfield and Ashfield area, along with the rest of Nottinghamshire, is bursting at the seams with things to do and places to go.

In Ashfield, excitement is mounting ahead of the opening of Kirkby’s new leisure centre by professional footballer Tom Huddlestone.

And in Mansfield, the town’s summer festival is ready to explode into life, while the Robin Hood Festival steps up another gear this weekend.

Add family fun at the cricket, at Sherwood Pines, Southwell Minster and Mansfield Museum, and there couldn’t be much more packed into our weekly guide.

Just one piece of advice – before you visit the venues, please check their individual websites for admission prices and opening times.

Have a great weekend!
