I have been following @NottsTweetUp on twitter for months, intrigued as to what it was all about and whether I should head along. I haven't been running my twitter account for very long and my following is far smaller than my blog, so I wasn't sure if it was something I could get involved with….

Open Friday to Sunday every week, it showcases amazing independent street food brands and alcoholic beverages, and seats 150 punters.  I admit that I'm usually drawn to the resident stand,…
