Jack Whitehall has wriggled his way into almost very avenue of our entertainment industry, and with good reason: an award-winning actor, comedian, presenter and writer, from his hit show on Netflix to hosting the BRIT Awards, he has more than proven his talents as an entertainer. But it’s the stage where it all started, and that’s where Jack’s returning to with his latest stand up show – which he’s bringing to Leeds’ First Direct Arena on Wednesday and Thursday.
Nermine George set up Le Chalet in Leeds’ financial district for a reason: she wanted to bring a little humanity to the area in the best way possible: serving up tasty food with a smile. Her French tearoom and bakery has a menu that boasts crêpes topped with a variety of mouthwatering treats, and an outstanding afternoon tea. Make it your go-to for brunch this week.
A giant of a panto is coming to Darlington from this Friday… Follow Jack (Britain’s Got Talent winner, George Sampson) as he climbs a huge beanstalk to outwit the evil giant and win the hand of the girl he loves. Helped along the way by Mother Nature (Strictly Come Dancing’s Shirley Ballas) and his hapless brother Simon (comedian Phil Walker), will Jack ever make it back down to earth? Fee-fi-fo-fabulous.
Scream for Pizza has taken its charming Neapolitan pizza van and turned the concept into a restaurant in Sandyford. Each pizza is made from dough that’s been proved for 48 hours and then cooked in a wood-fired oven, adorned with all your favourite toppings. And, with a newly-launched brunch menu including pizza pancakes and scream Benedict, it’s worth scheduling a visit pretty soon.
