Enjoy a heartstopping murder mystery in Newcastle, bop along to Beatles classics in Sunderland, pick from eight (yes, eight) cocktail menus at a swish Leeds bar and enjoy Sunday roasts all week round in York

Are you a big fan of the Sunday roast but hate being constrained to eating it on weekends? Treat yourself to a twist on the classic dish at The York Roast Co, where you can indulge in a roast dinner sandwich or a giant Yorkshire pudding. If you fancy something even more eclectic, try the Yorkypud, a giant Yorkshire pudding wrap filled with your choice of meat, vegetables, stuffing and gravy to satisfy that craving that just can’t wait till Sunday.

Agatha Christie murder mysteries are a must-watch when they’re on television, but are given an added immediacy when they take to the stage. The People’s Theatre, Newcastle’s production of  the Queen of crime’s Go Back for Murder opens tonight and runs for the rest of the week: see if you can find out which of the five suspects did it before everyone else does.

Hump Day can be the new Saturday at Vice and Virtue, a snazzy cocktail bar in the heart of Leeds which opens from 5pm to the early hours from Wednesday to Friday. With eight different cocktail menus, there really is something for everyone, from house classics including margaritas and martinis, to creative gin options, ranging from ‘For Jasmine’s Sake’, with jasmine-infused Japanese sake, to the ‘Yorkshire Lass’, flavoured with rhubarb and apple. With so many to sample, you’ll be dying to stay till the 3am close, even on a work night.

In the first concert of its kind in the UK, Macca: The Concert, uses state-of-the-art visuals and a cast of critically-acclaimed West End performers to celebrate Paul McCartney’s entire solo discography, spanning from 1970–2016. The fantastic show is hitting Sunderland Empire this week – there’ll also be a selection of Beatles favourites thrown in there for good measure.
