Things to do this weekend
Fri 15 - Sun 17 March 19
THEATRE: The Remains Of The Day, Royal & Derngate, now until Sat 16 Mar
A deeply atmospheric drama about time and memory, loneliness and longing, The Remains of the Day depicts the morally-compromised truth behind a world of manicured gardens, formal dinners and grand houses. As the fires rage through England during and after the Second World War, we get an intimate glimpse into one man’s half-lived life, realised too late.
FOOD: Showcase Menus at Paris House, throughout Mar
Award-winning chef, Phil Fanning, has announced the launch of a series of Showcase Menus to celebrate 5 years ownership of Bedfordshire’s fine dining restaurant Paris House in Woburn. March is the month of the Fish & Shellfish Showcase. Paris House may be about as far as one can get from the sea, but this is a tiny island, and they have wonderful seafood suppliers, so serve fabulous fresh fish. This menu will be 5 delicious courses celebrating the very best of the sea.
