The Alnwick Music Society’s Schubert Ensemble have a very special piano concert planned, featuring three pieces from Beethoven, Brahms and Charlotte Bray that promise to push the instrument to its very limits.
City Hall, Newcastle

Music virtuoso Jools Holland has spent his lifetime entertaining people, and he and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra put on quite a show. They’ll be joined by Grammy Award winner José Feliciano, Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Beth Rowley.
The Cornerhouse, Crook
The Hilarity Bites comedy night comes to Crook, and with a star-studded lineup to boot. Local lad Patrick Monahan will be delighting the audience with his zany, high-octane set, ably supported by Tom Taylor and Danny Deegan.
Ballets are always a festive favourite and this classic fairtytale is the ideal way to get your fix of twirling tutus. Watch as the skill of the Vienna Festival Ballet’s dancers and Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score bring this struggle between good and evil to life.
