10 Things To Do This Week
As eclectic as ever. A comedy rap battle, a vintage fair, opera and much much more.
1) MUSSOC sinfonia @ The Great Hall, Trent Building
Sunday, 7.30pm, £5
The student run orchestra of the music society will perform with Viva Voce choir and pianist Rob Upton in their final concert of the year, taking on works by composers including Beethoven, Elgar and Nielsen.
2) Jack Whitehall vs. Mark Grist @ Mooch
Friday, 7.30pm, £5
The worlds most unlikely event, a rap battle between plum-voiced fop Jack Whitehall and spoken word legend Mark Grist, at the Theatre of Dreams (Mooch). It’s for charity and the cast of C4’s Fresh Meat will be behind the bar. You honestly couldn’t make it up.
3) Jekyll and Hyde @ Nottingham Arts Theatre
Wednesday- Saturday, 7.30pm (with Saturday matinee), £10-7
Musicality are moving away from the happy clappy associations of musical theatre and will be performing a darker show this week. As revealed in The Tab’s interview, the audience should expect blood, evil alter egos and some scenes of a sexual nature. Following the amazing Wild West End, The Tab are sure that this will be a sell out.
4) Red @ Nottingham New Theatre
Wednesday- Saturday, 7.30pm (with Friday matinee), £5
The NNT’s first ever male two-hander tells the tale of legendary New York artist Mark Rothko. High quality expected.
5) Varsity Darts @ Rock City
Tuesday, 7pm, £5-10
You know a rivalry is serious when the darts gets involved. Stepping up to the oche will be some of the finest elite athletes Trent and Uni have to offer. One not to be missed, check out our preview here.
6) Media Bar Crawl @ Oceana + others
Monday, 9.30pm, £6
Impact, Nuts, URN and Mooch (media?) take off round a selection of bars, ending in Oceana in what is being billed as a bizarre battle for ‘media domination’.
7) Trouble in Tahiti @ Djanogly Recital Hall
Saturday, 7.30pm, £5-7
The Opera Society are putting on a performance of Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti this week. With only a very small cast, including Wild West End star Greg Link, this promises to be a performance of quality not quantity.
8) DJ Premier & Statik Selektah @ Nottingham Contemporary
Sunday, £16.50, 7.30pm
World famous duo takeover the Nottingham Contemporary for one night only.
9) The Nottingham Vintage Fair @ Albert Hall
Nottingham is famed for it’s variety of vintage shops, and so when the vintage fair comes to town you know it’s worth a look. With over 50 stalls, tea room and salon, it will make for a perfect girly day out.
10) A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ Nottingham Playhouse
Tuesday-Saturday, 7.45pm (Weds & Thurs Matinees), £15
