MAKE MY WEEK... | Living North



Find yourself escaping reality with the latest virtual reality gaming, laughing uncontrollably with Seann Walsh or slipping into a speakeasy

Start your week with something new as Bradford’s VR Immersion, brings a world of intuitive virtual reality gaming for you to try. Immerse yourself like never before in the next generation of games when you become the controller. It’s simple, you’re strapped into handsets and headsets before landing in a virtual world, with everything from awesome shooting games to Google Earth virtual reality, so choose to challenge your friends in a head-to-head shoot out, or embark on a round the world trip.

French painter, sculptor and designer Henri Matisse was one of the 20th century’s most influential artists, his vibrant works celebrated for their extraordinary richness and luminosity of colour, and his spectacular paper cut-outs were his final triumph. His exhibition comes to the Queen’s Hall Arts Centre in Hexham, featuring 35 posthumous prints of the famous cut-outs that he produced in the last four years of his life, including many of his iconic images – such as The Snail and the Blue Nudes.

There’s no better cure for the midweek blues than side-splitting laughter, and who better to provide those laughs than former Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Seann Walsh. He’ll be performing at the Pocklington Arts Centre and he’s always sure to deliver sharp, observational comedy that will have you out of the hump-day slump within the first five minutes.

You’re nearing to the weekend which means one thing – cocktails. Go to The Poison Cabinet in Newcastle for a cool and quirky relaxing drink or two. Haven’t heard of it before? That’s because it’s hidden away below Bierrex, offering somewhere secretive, where time passes you by and where you can sip cocktails that are elegant or refreshing, bitter or tropical, basically whatever mood you’re in – they’ve got your poison.
