FRI 5 – SUN 7 MAY 2017

Fri 5 - Sun 7 May 2017

Six things to get you out the house this weekend in Leicester and beyond this weekend.
Killer Queen, De Montfort Hall, Fri 5 May

Performing their tribute to Queen since 1993, Killer Queen will take over your evening for one night only.  Fronted by Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury, Time Out described Patrick’s resemblance to Freddie Mercury as “spooky.” Expect a phenomenal night, a high energy performance combined with a powerful three and a half octave tenor range, expert musicianship and a dynamic stage presence.

De Montfort Hall

14/48 Festival, Fri 5-6 May 

Take 7 writers, 7 directors, 25 actors, designers, and musicians add in 48 hours and you have 14 world premier play. Dubbed ‘The world’s quickest theatre festival’ 14/48  is theatre stripped back to it’s raw roots, and it is the most fun, challenging, and invigorating experience for both the artists and audiences that make it possible. It’s a great opportunity for audiences to see 14 plays which have been written, rehearsed, designed, scored and performed in 48 hours, 7 different plays each night. Performance times are 8pm and 10:30pm.

Romeo & Juliet, Uppingham Fri 5 May

One of the world’s best loved plays, ‘Romeo & Juliet’ is presented in a stripped-back style and aims to blow the cobwebs off Shakespeare. Merely Theatre’s commitment to gender-blind practice means a man and a woman play each set of parts alternately across the tour, a male Juliet, a female Mercutio – any combination is possible. This forward-thinking play is not to be missed.

Cheeki Monkeys Big Baby & Children’s Market, Ibstock, Sat 6 May 

A pop-up baby and children’s market from 10am -12 midday. Save on quality pre-loved goods and if you’re looking to sell, then get in touch to set up a stall to sell your babies’ and children’s toys, clothes and equipment. There will also be some crafts and business stalls selling their goods. A great idea and a handy way to make sure your useful baby and toddlers items get a good home.
