Something for the weekend…
The Dreamboys, Lighthouse Theatre Kettering, Thurs 19 May
The Dreamboys are back and bigger than ever (fnarr fnarr)! And apparently, without a shadow of a doubt, these hot pops are the UK’s top Male Strip Show, perfect for date night (joke). With special guest appearances on some of the UK’s biggest TV shows such as The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Celebrity Big Brother, Loose Women, This Morning, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and The Only Way Is Essex, plus massive sold out Worldwide Tours, it’s no wonder The Dreamboys have earned themselves the title of the only Male Strip Group in history to have celebrity status (hmmmm, some people have clearly never been to the Working Men’s Club scene in the north).
Felt Making, Bay Tree Cottage, Thurs 19 May
Learn about traditional and modern felt making techniques to create felted hats, bags, slippers and animals. You’ll be able to create great presents for your friends and family, much like the peg bag I once made my Mum, not realising it needed to be a bit more waterproof *sob!
Anne Reid- I Love to Sing!, The Corby Cube, Fri 20 May
Anne Reid is one of Britain’s most-loved and respected actors and star of the very popular Last Tango In Halifax, Ladies Of Letters, Dinnerladies and The Mother. Get ready for an evening of songs, stories, music and memories, including anecdotes about filming with Daniel Craig, performing Shakespeare at Buckingham Palace and making Last Tango In Halifax.
Pinocchio, Lighthouse Theatre Kettering, Fri 20 May
See the Ballet Theatre UK tell the tale of a wooden puppet carved from pine, with but one only wish…to become a real boy. Set to a stunning classical score this original production will delight ballet audiences and families alike and promises to carve a new love for Pinocchio through the magic of classical dance (Pinochio was always one of my faves all truth be told; but he didn’t look like this in the animation : /
Race, Rock ’n’ Ride, Santa Pod Raceway, Sat 21 and Sun 22 May
Race, Rock ‘n’ Ride is a brand-new event from Santa Pod Raceway which is being supported by the Classic Bike Shows team. The weekend-long festival of all things motorcycling has plenty of action and entertainment to keep you busy with non-stop spectacles and plenty of opportunities to have a go yourself…(cue maniacal laughter)!
