What's On This Week

Dial M For Murder
Until Saturday, March 23, 2019

In the second production of the Royalty Theatre’s new season, we follow Tony – who has married his wife Margot for her money, and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder: blackmailing a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her, and arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately for Tony, his hired murderer gets murdered and his victim survives… but could he still get away scot-free?

Tyne Valley Film Festival
Friday, March 22, 2019 - Sunday, March 31, 2019

Tyne Valley Film Festival promises to bring together communities in and around the Tyne Valley for a stellar celebration of both local, national and international film history. With 26 screenings at 12 different venues, the diverse programme features film archive material, cinema classics and under-seen films by unsung filmmakers – and at the Forum Cinema you can catch everything from the stunning, 1940 adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca to fascinating archive footage showing Hexham On Film. Five stars.

Nish Kumar
Friday, March 22, 2019

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Nish is one of the brightest young comedians on the UK circuit, and has had to extend his current tour due to sheer popular demand: promising to showcase a new set of jokes about politics and mankind’s capacity for self-destruction at the Tyne Theatre in March.

Spring Open Studios
Saturday, March 23, 2019 - Sunday, March 24, 2019

One of the jewel in Ouseburn’s cultural crown, 36 Lime Street is throwing opening the doors on all five levels of its beautiful listed building this March to invite us into the workshops of some of the most innovative and exceptional artists, designers, makers and musicians in the region. See you there?

Goya's Prison: The Year of Despair
Saturday, March 23, 2019 - Sunday, June 23, 2019

Late in 1792, renowned Spanish painter Francisco Goya became severely ill. During a period of recuperation he produced a set of small cabinet paintings on tin plate that were to define the rest of his career. The Bowes Museum’s Interior of a Prison is one of this series of works, and the story of the piece is explored in detail in this exhibition, alongside works by Reynolds, Ramsay and Tiepolo.

The Big One
Saturday, March 23, 2019

After a spectacular debut last year, The Big One is back – with the Newcastle Falcons taking their Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixture against Sale Sharks to St James' Park. The home of Newcastle United played host to a gripping contest last season, in front of a club-record crowd of 30,174, and we’re sure that with the Falcons’ nearest rivals providing the opposition, this year will be even bigger and better.
