10 Things To Do This Week
We sift through the listings so you don’t have to…
1) Jack Aged 5 ½ @ Nottingham New Theatre
Monday & Tuesday, 7pm, £3
Poignant yet amusing new writing at the Nottingham New Theatre. Spoiler- there is a light sabre fight…
2) Sinfonia Winter Concert @ The Great Hall, Trent Building
Sunday, 7.30pm, £4
MUSSOCs student run orchestra will be performing works including Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony, Peer Gynt Suite no.1 and Hebrides Overture. This is their first concert this year and will be broadcast on URN. Refreshments at the interval will be provided by Cakesoc!
3) Jerusalem @ Nottingham New Theatre
Wednesday-Saturday, 7.30pm (2.30pm Sat Mat), £5
Dubbed as This is England meets Trainspotting meets Skins. They’ve brought the woods indoors, and most importantly, a smashed up caravan. The Tab likes the sound of that.
4) Mumford and Sons @ Capital FM Arena
Saturday, 7.30pm, £29.50
Still with some limited availability, anyone without a ticket to this already should have the Capital FM Arena number on speed dial! The Tab hears there are going to be some pretty awesome support acts too, especially looking forwards to Dawes as their second album ‘Nothing is Wrong’ received 5 stars from The Independent.
5) Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood @ Nottingham Playhouse
Every day, 7.30pm (2.30pm matinees Mon-Thurs), £19
Nottingham’s favourite outlaw (no, not Kweko Adeboli) stars in the ultimate Nottingham pantomime. If you like men in dresses and cringeworthy jokes (and maybe the odd one you actually find funny) get in the festive mood at the Nottingham Playhouse.
6) Carnival @ Djanogly Recital Hall
Saturday, 8pm, £5
Opsoc will be performing former student Ed Denham’s debut opera, Carnival, this week. With a warning of ‘some adult themes’, this will not be any ordinary opera!
7) Christmas Vintage Fair @ Albert Hall
Saturday, 12-5pm, £1
Vintage lovers head to the Albert Hall this weekend where you can lust after some of the finest vintage finds. There will be over 50 stalls and a vintage beauty salon. Definitely worth a visit for a treat following the deadline blues!
8) Coro Sorelle & Man Choir @ St Barnabas Cathedral
Monday, 7.30pm, £4
As Christmas draws ever nearer the UoN Music Society go into overdrive. This week there are two carol concerts on offer-
9) Viva Voce and Revival Gospel Choir @ St Barnabas Cathedral
10) Daniel Sloss @ Just The Tonic
Monday, 8pm, £10
Scotland’s award winning comedy brings his show, geniously entitled The Show, to The Forum’s comedy night. He claims to be half-man-half-xbox, and we recommend you join the crowds that have seen 4 consecutive sold out Edinburgh Fringe runs.
