Make My Week...


The World Cup’s kicking off, Lionel Ritchie’s in town and we have the most divine mini Mexican dishes for you to try – get your diaries at the ready and make sure you don’t miss out on the action

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in World Cup atmosphere alongside other footy fans, then look no further than Billy Bootleggers in Newcastle. As well as being the undisputed best American-style dive bar in town, they’ll be showing every one of England’s World Cup matches over the next few weeks, as well as others across the competition. Plus, they’re offering a free moonshine every time Gareth Southgate’s men score a goal. After 52 years of hurt, you can’t say fairer than that.

Fans of Lionel Ritchie will be dancing All Night Long this week, as the American superstar takes to the stage at Scarborough Open Air Theatre as part of his summer tour. Performing decade-spanning hits, Lionel is excited to be back in the UK and promises an electric show full of all the chart toppers.

By the time it gets to Wednesday, we all want some down-time, and what better way to unwind than with a piano recital? Martin Roscoe’s career spans four decades, and he’s unarguably one of the UK’s best loved pianists. Catch him at Alnwick Playhouse this week for pieces by Field, Chopin, Schumann, Bax and Debussy.

Tapas is great. Mexican tapas is even better. Perfect for those who like to share or for those who like to eat a lot – Pinche Pinche in Leeds has everything from mini quesadillas and tacos to sopes and homemade guacamole. Once you try their corn on the cob covered in chipotle mayo, lime juice and mild spice, you’ll never look at sweetcorn the same.
