There’s plenty to see and do across Yorkshire this week

19 SEPTEMBER
ROB BRYDON

Leeds Town Hall
0113 376 0318
www.leeds.gov.uk/townhall
Rob Brydon’s famed for his star turns on Gavin and Stacey and The Trip, but it’s on stage where you can see him at his finest – and funniest. This show – entitled I Am Standing Up – sees Rob poke fun at his height and his history as a jobbing actor.

21 SEPTEMBER–1 OCTOBER
THE SHED CREW

Albion Electric Warehouse, Leeds
0113 213 7700
www.wyp.org.uk
This new stage play in verse is an adaptation of Leeds author Bernard Hare’s novel Urban Grimshaw and the Shed Crew, about an illiterate 12-year-old with a preternatural talent for words. This immersive performance is based in the eerie surroundings of the Albion Electric Warehouse.

22–30 SEPTEMBER
YORK LITTLE FESTIVAL OF LIVE MUSIC

Parliament Street, York
www.facebook.com/YorksLittleFestivalofLiveMusic
The world’s most straightforwardly-titled festival returns for 28 hours only between 22–30 September. The free family-friendly festival will have successive themed nights, so you can dip in and out depending on your musical tastes.

22 SEPTEMBER
AUSTENTATIOUS

The Milton Rooms, Malton
01653 696240
www.themiltonrooms.com
We’re going to throw four words at you that you might not have heard before: ‘improvised Jane Austen musical’. Be not afraid, dear reader: this is way more than your average period drama, and is an absolute sight to behold. Run, don’t walk, to get a ticket.

23 SEPTEMBER
THE LIBERTINES

Hull Arena
01482 325252
www.hullcc.gov.uk/hullarena
There was a 10-year period we’d rather not talk about, but Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have kissed and made up (and the former has thankfully got on a more even keel) and are back to performing some of the best indie music Britain’s ever produced.
