Viggo Venn: British Comedian
When: Saturday 20 January
Where: Nottingham Playhouse
How much: £22

Winner of Britain's Got Talent, comedian and clown Viggo Venn is on tour and coming to Nottingham Playhouse for a night of fun! Catch “World-class physical comedy" and "one of the most memorable characters since Mr Bean” according to BGT judge Bruno Tonioli, and expect gags, his winning hi-vis strip routine, a whole lot of fooling around on a tour that has been his “dream for so long”.


Nottingham Ceilidh Club
When: Friday 19 January 7.45pm - 11pm (dancing starts at 8pm)
Where: Boat & Horses Pub, Beeston
How much: £5

Celebrate Burns Night early with a Ceilidh in Beeston! Schuggies-Ceilidhs return to Nottingham to bring everyone together for a Scottish dance bonanza. If you love dancing but find the thought of hitting the d-floor daunting, Ceilidh is the perfectly imperfect one for you. Fun, laughter, dancing out of time with the music, probably having sore feet afterwards. It's not technical and half the fun is making mistakes.
