Pop-up Smokehouse, Leicester, Tues 19 June

You may remember a couple of years back that the Pop-Up Smokehouse was part of Obar. After a hiatus, the team have returned, and Tuesday sees them come back to Leicester, this time at The Globe. Following a successful run at The Rutland and Derby in April, you should definitely get yourself to The Globe on Tuesday night to taste some of the amazing smoked food.

The School for Scandal, Rutland Tues 19 – Sat 23 June

This week is the start of School for Scandal, one of the open air plays this year at the beautiful Tolethorpe Hall. The classic comedy by Richard Brinsley Sheridan is full of wit, fun and an engaging plotline. If you haven’t discovered this hidden treasure in Rutland, then perhaps now is the time to do so. The play is running throughout July and August as well, so there’s no excuses for not seeing this one!
