There's something happening this weekend, we're pretty sure... But before then, there's loads of great stuff to check out!
Home Alone in Concert
When: Monday 19 December, 7pm
Where: Royal Concert Hall
How Much: £32 - £68
It’s the week of Christmas so you’ll have to forgive us for slipping in a festive film. Join a full live orchestra at the Royal Concert Hall as they play alongside the iconic 1990 movie Home Alone, bringing the soundtrack to life in a way you’ve never experienced before. Originally nominated for best original score upon its initial release, you’re not going to want to miss the magic.
Shantay You Sleigh
When: Tuesday 20 December, 7.30pm
Where: Rock City
How Much: £25
Equally festive, you can celebrate the season with drag this Tuesday at Rock City. Brought to you by Klub Kids and hosted by the talented Lawrence Chaney, most well known from RuPaul’s Drag Race, this one promises to be a full Christmas production packed with stars from the UK show.
When: Wednesday 21 December, 7pm
Where: The Bodega
How Much: £10
You’d think it was just for Christmas, but The Clause is this band’s name all year round. A four-piece from Birmingham, these lot bring together all the swagger of the sixties and combine it with the groove of the eighties and the riotous nature of the nineties. A little bit of indie, a little bit of blues, they have it all, and they’re on at The Bodega this Wednesday.
Christmas Comedy Special
When: Thursday 22 December and Friday 23 December
Where: The Glee Club
How Much: £12.50 - £15
It’s officially the last week Glee are running their Christmas Comedy Special show, in which you can enjoy a festive meal alongside a night with some of the best comedians around. This week join Mickey D, Robert White and Bethany Black for a night of all-round fun.
When: Saturday 24 December, 8pm
Where: Nottingham Playhouse
How Much: £23.50
And last but not least, if you didn’t get time to catch the panto in time for Christmas, then fear not - because Nottingham Playhouse are releasing a special Christmas Eve edition of Dick Whittington to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. Purchase now and you’ll get hold of a link to the show, just in time for the viewing.
We have a favour to ask
LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
