This weekend

Fri 6 - Sun 8 March

DANCE: Giselle, Ballet Theatre UK, Key Theatre Peterborough, 6 March and Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds, 25 – 26 March

Ballet Theatre UK are bringing this dark and romantic ballet to both Peterborough and Bury St Edmunds this month. Join poor Giselle as she dies of heartache over naughty old Albrecht.

THEATRE: Room on the Broom, Cambridge Arts Theatre, 4 – 7 March 2020

Another classic from kids book extraordinaries, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. During this show you’re invited to join the witch and her cat on her broom on an adventure including multiple hitch-hikers and a dragon. At one hour max with no interval it’s a good one for the littlies, who can’t sit still for long.

DANCE: Russian State Ballet of Siberia, Ipswich Regent, 5 – 7 March 

Russian Siberian ballet swan lake

Can’t decide whether you like The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty or Swan Lake the best? You can see all three this month in Ipswich because the Russians are in residence performing all three back to back.

COMEDY: Ed Byrne, If I’m Honest…, Corn Exchange, Cambridge, 7 March

Ed Byrne is one of the most successful comedians performing in the UK, regularly appearing on TV shows like Mock The Week, Live at The Apollo, and QI, and touring to sold-out theatres. Originally from Ireland, he now lives in Essex with his wife and two children, but comes to Cambridge’s Corn Exchange with his new observational comedy show, If I’m Honest when he’ll be taking a long hard look at himself to work out if he has ANY traits that are worth passing on to his children!

COMEDY: Sarah Keyworth: Pacific, The Junction, Cambridge, 8 March

Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Newcomer and winner of the Herald Angel Award returns with a brand-new hour of comedy about the little things, the smallest details, the fixed and distinct aspects that make up what we definitively are, how we expressly think and who we unambiguously love.

SPORT: Cambridge Half Marathon, 8 March 

So, it’s a bit late to apply to do the half marathon, but it’s definitely worth joining the crowds on the 8 March to cheer on Cambridge’s runners. There’s an amazing vibe and I always feel like I’ve done my exercise for the day just watching the runners in action!

 

FURTHER AFIELD 

THEATRE: Time Machine, London Library, London, until 5 April

The Creation Theatre crew are heading to the Big Smoke! In this moving (literally) production, small audiences will be led through the vast London Library as Time Machine, which explores themes of neuroscience, big data, genomics and global connectedness, unfolds. Knowing Creation, it’s bound to be brilliant.

 

EXHIBITION: Herstory, Maddox Gallery, London, 2 – 24 Mar

To mark International Women’s Day, this new exhibition aims to redefine the conversation around women in art and raise awareness for brilliant female artists that champion women in their work. Artists exhibiting include Coco Davez, Sophia Tea and Lauren Baker.
