Tuesday 13th September
COMEDY Long Live Comedy @ Dog & Parrot, Newcastle
Newcastle’s new act and new material comedy night is over a decade old and has hosted some of the best comics the region has ever produced. This week sees Kate Fox, Jonathan George, Neil Harris, Rahul Kohli, Scott Liversidge, Steven Seagull and your compere Si Beckwith bring the laughs. There’s a chance at least one or two of these is a future star, so always worth a visit.
Wednesday 14th September
STAGE Return To Sue Burbia @ Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle
A wonderfully inventive blend of comedy, art and theatre is making its way to Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle on Wednesday, as we’re given the chance to meet Sue Burbia and her life in domesticity; following her through a dream-like multimedia experience. Brought to life by the immensely original and utterly talented Liberty Hodes this will be a show like no other.
Thursday 15th September
STAGE Anti-Slam @ Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle
We wouldn’t normally recommend the same venue twice in one week, but Thursday is something very original indeed. Usually if you head off to a poetry night you’d be hoping to hear some beautiful imagery and thought-provoking verses. Not at the Anti-Slam, the name of the game is to produce the most cringe-worthy, hilariously bad, embarrassing pseudo-poetry imaginable, all in the effort to be crowned Anti-Slam champion.
Friday 16th September
STAGE Where do all the Dead Pigeons Go @ Northern Stage, Newcastle
It is a show that has already toured the Edinburgh Fringe and mini rave reviews are springing up on social media. We’ve been told to expect to laugh and cry while enjoying a mixture of acting and projections of original cartoons. A Friday night like no other is most definitely in store.
Saturday 17th September
MUSIC T-shirt Weather @ Empty Shop, Durham
Pop punk funsters T-Shirt Weather are a must-see for any passionate Durhamite, as they continue to bask in the angst-ridden glory of their latest LP Pig Beach. With support from Tough Tits and The Fairweather Band, Empty Shop is the place to be this weekend.
Sunday 18th September
FILM Andrei Rublev @ Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle
Regarded as one of Andrei Tarkovsky’s finest films, Andrei Rublev charts the life of the great icon painter through a turbulent period of 15th-century Russian history which was marked by endless fighting between rival Princes and Tatar invasions.
