No idea what to do this weekend? Well our handy guide will help you make the most of your time.
If you fancy a good laugh this weekend, why not see comedians Peacock and Gamble at the UEA LCR? Starting off as a podcast, this comedy duo grew in fame, appearing at the Fringe festival and on Russell Howard’s Good News showing that being funny can get you far. They are performing at 7.30pm on Saturday offering their own style of comedy which is guaranteed to make you laugh uncontrollably. Tickets are £5 from www.ueaticketbookings.co.uk
To distract the children for a few hours, why not take them to see Hotel Transylvania (U) at the cinema. You would think being set in a hotel full of monsters and run by Dracula would be anybody’s worst nightmare. Instead it offers fun for all ages with the appearance of well-known monsters such as Frankenstein’s monster, Murray the Mummy and The Invisible Man voiced by many fantastic actors, all who have come to celebrate Dracula’s daughter’s birthday.
With autumn drawing in the countryside is beginning to take on a mixture of amazing colours, so why not experience this on a walk through one of Norfolk’s woods? Mousehold Heath is free and open all day, offering both views of the city and the quietness of the countryside it is a great place to bring the family or just to walk the dog. Bacton Wood also offers this experience with 280 acres of woodland that will help you to get away from everyday life and see British nature at its best.
For musical lovers, 42nd Street will be right up you street, if you excuse the pun. Following Peggy Sawyer’s road to Broadway fame it offers dance routines and songs that are guaranteed to get you out of your seat, and dancing all the way home. With a cast of around 30 and headed by West End star Dave Willetts this will be a experience you won’t forget for a while. Performances start at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday for around £32.50.
