10 Things To Do This Week

Varsity Rugby, Mayfest, a Grease Singalong, Alt-J and much much more…

1) Varsity Rugby @ Meadow Lane

Rugby U Varsity

Monday, 5.15pm

A personal highlight of Amy’s annual calender. Monday brings together some of the most talented men and women in our university and pits them against the pink army Trent. Whoever decided to make men, with thighs the size of my waist, play in pink had a warped sense of humour.


2) Frankenstein @ NNT
Wednesday-Saturday, 7.30pm (2.30pm Sat Mat), £5

A unique and new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein premieres this week at the Nottingham New Theatre. A few of you will be able to justify this as revision.


3) £1 Jaeger Bomb Epic @ Market Bar

Thursday, 10pm

We had to draw your attention to this. £1. The cultural halo has slipped, it’s going to get messy.


4) Alt-J @ Rock City

Alt-J: Planking their way to critical acclaim

Alt-J: Planking their way to critical acclaim

Monday, 7.30pm, SOLD OUT

Mercury Prize Winners Alt-J come to Nottingham in one of the most hotly anticipated Rock City gigs of the year. We’re very jealous of those lucky ticket holders.


5) May Fest @ UoN

Saturday, 11am-5.30pm, FREE

Back on the cultural hype for the annual May Fest. It really does what it says on the tin. It’s in May and it is a festival of arts. Check out the link on the Facebook group to see what tickles your pickle.


6) Indian Takeaway with Hardeep Singh Kohli @ Lakeside Arts


Thursday, 8pm, £12

A Novel idea from TV personality Hardeep Kohli Singh. He orders an Indian takeaway, then cooks his own curry live to try and beat it. There’s tasting at the end for a lucky few, and presumably a few anecdotes along the way.


7) The Skints @ Rescue Rooms

Saturday, 6.30pm, £11

Marcia and her boys return to Nottingham to play Rescue Rooms. They are going from strength to strength and are worth checking out.


8) Singalong Grease @ Theatre Royal Concert Hall


Saturday, 7.30pm, £15.50

Sing away those pre-exam blues with this special singalong screening of Grease. Fancy dress is encouraged and audience participation expected…


9) BBC Philharmonic @ Theatre Royal Concert Hall

Wednesday, 7.30pm, £10

Presenting an evening of Grieg and Sibelius, the BBC Phil will provide some beautiful and intense music. Sib 4 is not for the faint hearted…


10) Tom Stade @ Glee Club

Thursday, 6.45pm, £10

The hilarious Tom Stade returns once again to the Glee Club, to delight and offend his otherwise adoring audience.
