BOBBY BAKER’S GREAT AND TINY WAR
Arthur's Hill, Newcastle
www.wunderbar.org.uk
In this latest exhibition from artist Bobby Baker (who’s family hail from the North East) she invites visitors on a tour of a transformed house – an ingenious, immersive multimedia installation inspired by real stories, passed down through her family and shaped by the domestic and emotional labour of conflicts, and juxtaposing the spectacular with the everyday. 

12 SEPTEMBER
GARBAGE 
Northumbria University Students’ Union, Newcastle 
0191 227 4757

Indie pop-rockers Garbage enjoyed tremendous success in the mid-nineties, with their debit album selling more than four million copies and a host of smash-hit singles that included Stupid Girl, Only Happy When It Rains and Cherry Lips. And time has only made them better. Don’t miss this chance to see them in this intimate venue.

THE NAZZIE HOUSE GIRLS
Middlesbrough Theatre

This heavenly production, based on the popular novel Memoirs Of A Nazareth House Girl, begins in Middlesbrough, 1951, where two young girls are taken in at a convent run by the poor sisters of Nazareth. A humorous and illuminating account of their time spent in care, The Nazzie House Girls explores friendship, family, and the rules meant to be broken.

The annual Ocean Film Festival is sweeping towards Whitley Bay with a brand new selection of the world’s most amazing ocean films – from both above and below the surface – celebrating the divers, paddlers, surfers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray. 

14 SEPTEMBER
JULIET KELLY
Gala Theatre, Durham

Juliet Kelly is something of a hidden treasure on the UK jazz scene; combining a love of the classics with her acclaimed songwriting ability, distinctive velvety voice and ‘glam jazz’ style, Juliet brings music from the likes of Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday into the modern age with ease and aplomb.
