There’s plenty to see and do across the North East this week

14–18 NOVEMBER
SEASON’S GREETINGS

People’s Theatre, Newcastle
0191 265 5020
www.peoplestheatre.co.uk
‘Christmas is a gift to the dramatist,’ Alan Ayckbourn once said, and this play shows exactly why. It’s a rather unhappy Christmas, and a season of very little goodwill, as a festive family reunion goes ever so slightly wrong.

16–19 NOVEMBER
LUMIERE DURHAM

Durham City
www.lumiere-festival.com
Back in Durham for the fifth time, artists from around the world will light up Durham in ways you’ve never seen before. Watch out for a tornado of fire, an animated moon and a garden of glowing flowers in the Cathedral cloisters. 

18 NOVEMBER
GLOW

Arts Centre Washington
0191 561 3455
www.artscentrewashington.co.uk
This interactive performance celebrates the very best of luminescence, hip-hop dance and circus skills. There’ll be wow-worthy projections and dancing, culminating in an outdoor fire dance and the opportunity to take part in an all-ages glow rave suitable for children after the event.

18–19 NOVEMBER
CREATE CHRISTMAS AT WALLINGTON

Wallington, Cambo
01670 773600
www.nationaltrust.org.uk
The historic home of the Trevelyan family comes alive at Christmas, and this special sneak peek allows visitors to see and experience the final stages of decorating the grand property for the festive season.

19 NOVEMBER
ANDREW RYAN AND CHRIS KENT

The Old English Gentleman, Darlington
01325 353353
www.facebook.com/theoldenglishgentleman88
Possibly the best two exports to ever come from Cork in Ireland, Chris Kent and Andrew Ryan have made their name on the comedy circuit for their quick-witted banter and repartee. They’re touring the UK as a duo, promising plenty of laughs.
