James Acaster: Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999, The Playhouse, Norwich, Mon 2nd – Weds 4th December 

James Acaster’s is coming to the Norwich Playhouse this month, but hurry as tickets are selling fast! Thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of his life and about how much he hates himself sometimes – it’s a hilarious evening as you join James on his chaotic thought process.

Flux:Intermedia, Norwich Arts Centre, Tues 3rd December 

A new concept in the creation of holistic, intermedia performance with retro 60’s and 70’s influence, aimed at people with an interest in dance, music, visual art – sounds intrigueing!

Rat Pack Christmas Party, The Cliff Hotel, Sun 8th December 

Christmas with the Rat Pack – croon along with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. Ok – so not quite the real ones (I think I can work out whose who) but this still sounds like a fun evening with three-course festive meal and disco after party!

Happy 4th Birthday to one of our favourite Norwich bars – the Blue Joanna will be celebrating in style with live music & much merriment!
