#RunAndTalk is designed to improve mental health wellbeing through running and breaking the stigma associated with mental health. During the week of 2 to 8 February 2019 we're encouraging people to run a mile or further and chat with friends, family or other runners.

Enjoy an evening of stargazing at Sherwood Forest!
Learn about the night sky in general, particularly naked eye celestial delights such as the planets, aurora, meteors and stars.
Nigel Cunnington will provide his in-depth knowledge of all things radio astronomy, and will have a fabulous display of meteorites for visitors to look at and hold, each having its own story to tell. We also hope to listen to meteors in real-time using an antenna and computer software.
The evening will include a talk about the Moon, and if we’re lucky enough to have a clear night, will include viewing it with telescopes provided by Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society.
£8 per person, or £6.40 for RSPB Members. Not suitable for children under 8 years.
Newark Palace Theatre on Saturday 16 February at 2.30pm
Snow White and Rose Red, sisters, twins, and best friends have lived in the forest since they were babes in the wood.
Not as worldly wise as their mother would have liked, they are nonetheless kind, caring and sometimes a little over-enthusiastic in their deeds! When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear, a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping into?
All questions will be untangled in this new show from the Woods of Widdershins, using puppets, storytelling, original music and a fantastical fairytale forest. Suitable for age 4+
