This critically-acclaimed stage show, adapted from the bestselling novel by Sebastian Faulks for the 100th anniversary of the First World War, follows the life of Stephen Wraysford through the Battle of the Somme and beyond. A heartbreakingly poignant tale of love, loss and courage.

CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN
Spiller’s Wharf, Newcastle
www.thisistomorrow.co.uk
Headlining the This Is Tomorrow Festival, the platinum-selling Catfish And The Bottlemen bring their unique blend of laddish, energised indie-rock to their Geordie fanbase. They may have what NME termed a ‘meat-and-potatoes musical philosophy’ but, however you’d describe them, they’re a proven crowd-pleaser.
