Tanks A Lot
It's the Armed Forces weekend this Saturday and Sunday. This year is going to be slightly different as it is taking place at the castle and in the Old Market Square, rather than at Wollaton Park, where it is usually held. The park is presently closed due to the filming of the new Batman movie. Yes Wollaton Hall is standing in as Bruce Wayne's house! It's a well known secret in Nottingham at the moment. What is not known is whether any of the stars are coming here too, or whether it's just going to be external shots, and all the interiors are done in Hollywood.
I was still surprised though to see a tank parked close to the statue of Robin Hood at lunchtime. There weren't any soldiers about guarding it. But then, how many people actually know how to drive a tank? And anyway, it wouldn't be too difficult to chase it, but maybe it would to stop it.
