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 top comedy, a smattering of film and lovely music!

Monday 28th March
FILM Daniel Kitson @ Gala Theatre, Durham
Screening of the comedian’s show It’s Always Right Now, Until It’s Later, performed at Edinburgh Fringe and on tour across the UK. The screening includes a Q&A with Daniel himself.

Tuesday 29th March
COMEDY Angela Barnes @ The Angel, Topcliffe
Witty, award-winning comic who’s appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show. Plus support from Phil Jerrod, who entertains with his stream-of-consciousness style material.

Wednesday 30th March
ART Leonardo: Thinking Through Drawing @ Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle
Richard Talbot, Head of Fine Art at Newcastle University, discusses how Leonardo da Vinci thought through drawn line. A talk celebrating the ingenious and imaginative ways in which ideas, materials, space and structure can be both explored and evoked on the flat plane of the paper’s surface.

Thursday 31st March
FILM Vision To Vision @ Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle
Two short films made by participants of The Factory, considering ideas of perception, from our physical and emotional experience of ‘time’ to questions about how we frame and manipulate reality through social media.

Friday 1st April
MUSIC Barry Hyde @ The Watch House, Sunderland
Having recently announced that his debut album will be released in June, the former Futureheads frontman performs his dramatic piano vignettes. Support comes from another of Sunderland’s favourite sons, Paul Liddell, whose guitar looping genius is quite the spectacle.

Saturday 2nd April
MUSIC Hazels @ The Cluny 2, Newcastle
The Durham indie rockers celebrate the release of their new single, The Cure, with a gig featuring noise popsters Them Things and Durham’s rockers The Castells.

Sunday 3rd April
COMEDY Lee Kyle @ The Stand, Newcastle
Following on from his Ultimate Worrier show, Lee Kyle’s new (and hilariously absurdly titled) show focuses on frustration, acceptance, shyness and not being stupid.
