Monday 3rd April
COMEDY Stand Spotlight – New Beginnings @ The Stand, Newcastle
The Stand Spotlight shows are always a hoot and raise money for a very good cause each time. This time around, the talented acts which include Stanley Brooks, Neil Harris, Julie Grady Thomas, Sean Turner and more will be doing bespoke sets all on the theme of “new beginnings.”

Tuesday 4th April

Wednesday 5th April
COMEDY Russell Kane @ ARC, Stockton
Midweek brings more laughs as regular TV face Russell Kane brings his new show to ARC, which will be filled with stories, silliness and the usual bundle of energy.

Thursday 6th April
MUSIC Stormzy @ O2 Academy
A show that’s gone from ‘hot ticket’ to ‘generation-defining moment’ in the blink of an eye, check out Mark Corcoran-Lettice’s full preview here.

Friday 7th April

Launching ahead of a lengthy run, this new play from acclaimed-writer Patrick Marber centres on a football team, and has a spectacularly talented cast which includes Stephen Tompkinson.

Saturday 8th April

With a new single out, the dreamy melodies of the local favourites will be a real treat for this Sunderland audience, and you can also read more in Nad Khan’s interview with the band here.

Sunday 9th April
EVENTS City Guides Heritage Walk @ Jesmond Cemetery, Newcastle
Something a bit different for your Sunday, with a walk and an explore. It’s early afternoon too, so you can always go for a late Sunday dinner after.

And for something a little different…
We premiered the new video from dark duo The Blacksheep Frederick Dickens last week, and if you’ve not seen the video yet, here it is, as it’s a cracker for a song that is filled with their tortured brilliance.
