Reliably informed

Stuck for something to do in the next seven days? We aim to have you covered with an event a day for the next week, all across the region. This time around we have captivating live music, award-winning comedy, political cinema and a couple of theatrical Orwellian treats.

Monday 29th February
MUSIC Louis Barabbas @ Heaton Perk, Newcastle
Considering this day comes around once every four years, we think it should be spent doing something wonderful. We highly recommend Mancunian extrovert Louis Barabbas’ show at Heaton Perk, as it’ll be filled with literate and lyrical joy, romping melodies and a live performance you’ll never forget.

Tuesday 1st March
COMEDY Iain Sterling @ The Stand, Newcastle
The triple BAFTA nominated Scot’s new show is about post-referendum Scotland and the time he annoyed the armed forces. Satirical and hilarious!

Wednesday 2nd March
STAGE Stowaway @ ARC, Stockton
A story about a man from India who finds himself far from home and adrift from everything he knows; an extraordinary journey in search of an impossible future.

Thursday 3rd March
STAGE Animal Farm @ Northern Stage, Newcastle
George Orwell’s allegorical novel gets a stage production courtesy of NORTH 2016. Tired of living the hard life under human rule, the starving animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master and drive him off the land.

Friday 4th March
FILM Between Times @ Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle
Part of AV Festival. Between Times by filmmaker Marc Karlin looks at the fate of the British Left in the wake of Thatcherism. Followed by a Q&A session with the Marc Karlin Archive and AV Festival director Rebecca Shatwell.

Saturday 5th March
MUSIC The Shooting Of @ Pop Recs Ltd, Sunderland
A lovely lunchtime option, as this month’s cover star The Shooting Of gives his album a proper airing with an afternoon in-store performance. Expect a dexterous performance of sublime pop noir.

Sunday 6th March
STAGE 1984 @ Empty Shop HQ, Durham
Another Orwellian treat for the North East, this time in the form of 1984, the original tale of Big Brother and a paranoid society where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory.
