Heather Smith's weekend whirl

Mutya in town, coastal fun, sewing at Aintree and young Dickens. It's a-happening....

Published on April 24th 2009.

Heather Smith's weekend whirl

Buena vista
Newz bar will play host to a live gig from Mutya Buena this Friday night. Remember Mutya?

The tattooed/pierced London lass must wonder why she left the Sugababes. Collaborations with George Michael, Groove Armada and Amy Winehouse all but failed to successfully establish her as a lone star. And when a stint in Celebrity Big Brother is a major solo career credit, surely its over. Mind you, she left that too.

Mutya remains on the occasional gig circuit and is currently working toward a second studio album, which is due for release later on in the year. Pop along to see the potential pop bounce back in progress.

*Sweet presents Mutya Buena, Newz Bar, Fri 24th April, 9pm, tickets £10, available www.ticketweb.co.uk and Zavvi, Liverpool One

Crazy name, crazy day
West Kirby will be the focus of “Transition Town”, a jam packed family activity day at Wirral Country Park Visitor Centre this Sunday.Local transport is one of the items that will be placed under the microscope. Presumably a historical approach, rather than any in depth discussion of Arriva's 437 double decker Cross River Explorer service.

But the local food aspect, featuring tastings and recipes from the region's finest produce, should not disappoint.

As well as getting stuck in to seed planting during the day, children will take away a starter vegetable garden complete with planting instructions which should keep you busy once you get home, too.

*Transition Town, Wirral Country Park, Sun 26th April, 11am-4pm, for more information call 0151 648 4371

In stitches
Crafty characters should travel to Aintree this weekend where the touring Mecca for practical arty types is landing for one weekend only.

Over 100 stalls will feature in the unmissable megamix of displays, supplies, demonstrations, talks and workshops. Special exhibits include The Great British PicKnit, Poetry in Stitches and The Bead Scene.

*Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts Show, Exhibition Pavillion, Aintree Racecourse, Fri 24th-Sun 26th April, Tickets £6.20/£5.20, for more information visit www.ichf.co.uk

David Copperfield
Oliver Kennedy and Portia Harris are the 16- and 17-year-old directors of the current Unity Theatre run of David Copperfield.

The Performers Theatre School pupils have spent months working on Dickens's famous bildungsroman, which features some of Victorian literature's most memorable, colourful characters.

The plot, minus the many twists and turns, looks back to the young David's unhappy childhood in Blunderstone before making the journey to find happiness eventually becoming a successful novelist in London.

Sam Lui and Jack Murray take on the young and old role of DC himself whilst new directing hand Oliver gives it a twist by starring as Mr. Creakle. Talk about in at the deep end.

*David Copperfield, Unity Theatre, until Sat 25 April, tickets £12/£10, to book visit unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk

The Unity Theatre remains the bastion of socially aware theatre in Liverpool. It will never make money and certainly never attract decent acting talent but it can be relied upon to have a social conscience and great big heart.Let us hope that they realise though that Dickens never meant his novels to have modern relevance - they have to be played straight and within a Victorian context (i.e. with lots of mawkish sentiment).

Why do women deface themselves with tattoos?This large lady looks like a transsexual already without the dockers scribble all over her meaty body!

She looks a bit common.
