10 Things To Do This Week
We’ve outdone ourselves this time. A zombie apocalypse, opera, A Clockwork Orange, Rebel bingo and choirs…
1) Osama The Hero @ NNT UNCUT
Monday, 7.30pm, £3
A provocative title for a provocative play, performed in a provocative location. What’s not to love about another great offering from the Nottingham New Theatre UNCUT season.
2) Alice’s Psychedelic Tea Party @ BZR
Monday, 10pm, £4
With all proceeds going to charity and BZR’s infamous triples for singles this ticks every box for guilt free post-hand-in indulgence.
3) Great Gatsby Vs Prohibition @ Bodega and Coco Tang (respectively)
Representing the roaring twenties, these events will go head to head to replicate the speakeasy atmosphere of the 1920s. With slappers- I mean flappers- aplenty both evenings will exude luxury and glamour to even the poorest of student. No wannabe Al Capone’s though, please.
4) Choir Concerts @ Djanogly Recital Hall
Tuesday and Wednesday
In the final week of term MUSSOC have gone into vocal overdrive with three concerts on offer this week. The first will be the aptly named Man Choir, offering all things manly and barbershop. This concert is a part of the Lunch Time Concert series that the department ofter twice weekly at 1.15pm. Following this is the premier choir of the university Viva Voce, fresh from performing for the new VC. This concert will begin at 7.30pm. Lastly, on Wednesday Coro Sorelle will perform Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater.
5) A Clockwork Orange @ NNT
Tuesday-Friday, 7.30pm, £5
Fancy a little mid-week ultra-violence? Set to be a fantastic end-of term finale from the Nottingham New Theatre.
6) Rebel Bingo @ Rescue Rooms
Wednesday, 8pm, Only £8 tickets remaining.
We at The Tab love a good board game, but this takes a friendly bit of gambling that your grandma would usually partake in to a whole new filthy dirty level. Seeing is believing in this instance, we certainly don’t know what to expect…
7) Bastille @ Rock City
Thursday, 7pm, SOLD OUT
The slightest of upgrades from Mooch, Bastille are back! Support comes from Tab favourites To Kill A King.
8) Detonate @ Stealth
Friday, 10pm, £12
Fancy a big end of term blow-out? Here’s your number 1 option.
9) Opera North @ The Theatre Royal Nottingham
With four operas on offer, Opera Norths latest visit has the breadth to tickle anyone’s fancy. From a classic of Dido and Aeneas through to the epic on offer by Verdi.With student tickets at £10 if you are curious about the joys of opera it’s definitely worth a punt.
10) 2.8 Hours Later @ Nottingham City Centre
Wednesday-Saturday, 7pm, £28
This is a warning more than anything else. Zombies are about to take over everything… An absolutely bizarre but wonderfully unique event. We’re not 100% sure what it is, but it sounds fun.
