Swan Lake, Century Theatre, Coalville, Fri 16 March

After a sellout success with their production of Cinderella in 2017, Vienna Festival Ballet returns to the Century theatre with their magical production of Swan Lake. With one of the best known love stories and glorious music from Tchaikovsky, it has become the most popular ballet in the world. It captures like no other the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, form terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy. Tickets £25.

Adam Hess: Cactus, Uppingham Theatre, Fri 16 March

Edinburgh Comedy award-nominated chap and star of Tonight at the London Palladium, Live from the BBC returns for another smash hit show. He’s five foot eleven, he hates other families’ plates, and he had his 18th birthday party on a riverboat on the Thames so when people realised how boring it was they couldn’t leave.
