Chinese dinosaur display wins


heritage award


A world-exclusive exhibition that brought Chinese dinosaurs to the region has won a top award. The Dinosaurs of China


exhibition, developed by Nottingham City Council Museums Service and the University of Nottingham, received the Judges’ Special Award at the Regional Heritage Awards 2019. In 2017, more than 130,000


people visited the four-month display to see the rare skeletons and fossils never-before seen outside of Asia, which came about from pioneering research by Dr Wang Qi, an assistant professor in Architecture at the university. Dinosaurs of China brought to


life the story of how dinosaurs evolved into the birds that live


‘The development of the exhibition took a massive amount of work’


alongside us today, adopting a new narrative-led approach to the design of a museum, informed by Dr Wang Qi’s research, instead of a traditionally chronological layout. Based on Dr Wang Qi’s work,


Nottingham’s Museum Service focused on curating the exhibition to make it accessible and engaging to the general public. The exhibition drew visitors from


Europe and beyond, with 75 schools visiting and taking part in activities designed to inspire an interest in science and scientific research. The accompanying engagement


programme saw 28,000 people take part.


Cllr Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder


for Leisure and Localities, said: “This was an amazing exhibition which brought many skeletons and fossils to the UK and Europe for the first time. “The centrepiece of the


exhibition was the magnificent Mamenchisaurus, which was the tallest skeleton ever displayed in the UK. “The development of the


exhibition took a massive amount of work and collaboration which was rewarded with large numbers of visitors who came to see this exhibition in Nottingham.” Jason Feehily, Director of


Knowledge Exchange Asia at the


University of Nottingham, said: “The Dinosaurs of China is a wonderful example of collaborative working with Nottingham City Museums Service, Lakeside Arts, the Asia Business Centre, Nottingham Confucius Institute and our China partners the Beijing Institute of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Palaeoanthropology; and the Long Hao Institute of Geology and Palaeontology. “It is a success story for our city,


raising Nottingham’s profile and enhancing the local tourism economy.” The Regional Heritage Awards


celebrate the extraordinary and excellent work that is taking place in heritage organisations throughout the East Midlands.


North Notts town gets free business wifi


A north Nottinghamshire town is supporting its businesses with free wifi thanks to an innovative initiative from the North Notts BID. Tuxford now offers free


John Mitchell, of Sally Mitchell Fine Art in Tuxford, makes use of the newly-installed wifi


connectivity for visitors to the centre of the town, allowing them to keep up-to-date with the latest offers and events without using their mobile data. It is the fourth place in the BID


area to take up the initiative, which was prompted by a 2017 feasibility


study which identified free wifi across town centres as a high priority for visitors, businesses, and the local community. Since then, Retford, Worksop


and Harworth have all had the service rolled out, with Tuxford becoming the latest to take advantage of the BID’s technology-led approach. Sally Gillborn, Chief Executive of


North Notts BID, said: “We are delighted to be able to roll out this


service for the people and businesses of Tuxford. “The town is a great destination


for tourists thanks to its variety of independent shops and attractions such as Tuxford Windmill and Sally Mitchell Fine Art, so being able to offer free internet connectivity across the town centre will really enhance the experience of visitors and residents alike as well as supporting an increase in numbers.”
