Some inspiration for your weekend entertainment

20th - 25th November


John Walters’ comedy film – which took some big, serious themes about the struggle for racial equality and the importance of being yourself – was turned into a not-very-serious smash hit musical stuffed full of catchy songs. The show comes to Sheffield in January and Hull in April.

The Alhambra, Bradford


22nd - 26th November


This stage musical started life as an entertaining comedy film with Martin Freeman as a primary school teacher who leads his pupils to believe that a bigshot Hollywood producer is coming to see their nativity play. It was all rather endearing and, incredibly, a big success. Mind you, the sequels – Danger in the Manger (starring David Tennant) and Dude, Where’s My Donkey (starring Martin Clunes) – were every bit as bad as they sound. No wonder this production sticks firmly to the plot of the first movie.

The Lyceum, Sheffield 


24th – 26th November

The Hepworth Wakefield Christmas Market

From food and drink to jewellery, ceramics, prints, stationery, textiles, cosmetics, homewares, gifts for children plus street food, workshops, free family events and a visit from Santa.
