Something for the Weekend (26-28 September 08)

Don't worry. There's plenty of stuff going on to help you wind down after a hard week at work. Here's Heather's tips this week...

Published on September 25th 2008.

Something for the Weekend (26-28 September 08)

Gin and Tonic and Passing Trains
Not that we’d want to put you off your gin, but a dark visual comedy running at the Unity Theatre tonight makes the spirit seem somewhat less appealing as the “T” in G&T is replaced with “Trains.” Ouch.

The play, which premiered in Glasgow last spring, is based on the classic Dickens ghost story, The Signalman. The audience watch as all sorts of spirits appear when Mr Jones hits the bottom of his bottle.

Tonight is your last chance to see the award-winning show, so book your tickets pronto if you plan on going. Will you be brave enough to bag a G&T in the interval?

Gin and Tonic and Passing Trains @ the Unity Theatre, until 26th Sept, 8pm, tickets £9, £7 concessions, to book, visit www.unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk

Verdi Requiem
After performing for the Hope Street Feasters last weekend, Vasily Petrenko and the Philharmonic Choir are heading to the Metropolitan Cathedral this Saturday to take partake in one of the most dramatic and intimate compositions ever: Verdi Requiem.

Written to mourn the death of poet Alessandro Manzoni, Verdi’s Requiem is said to be the most daring, dramatic and effective piece in terms of conveying mass-scale public grief. Tissues are a given.

There’s no doom and gloom in terms of the line-up though; as well as our stars from the Phil, international idols Anne Schwanewilms, Mariana Pentcheva, Joseph Calleja and Micro Palazzi will lead this colourful choral cluster through an unforgettable performance.

Verdi Requiem @ the Metropolitan Cathedral, 27th Sept, 7.30pm, to book tickets call 0151 709 3789

Vintage Fair & Organ Rally
The largest free-admission vintage fair in the country celebrates its 50th anniversary this weekend in Victoria Park, Widnes.

The engine-extravaganza includes a working vintage fun fair as well as stationary vehicle, miniature steam and model boat displays. Elsewhere, entertainment comes in the form of shire horses, a brass band and a tug of war competition whilst for the kids you can expect hand puppet shows and wacky entertainers.

Whether you want to meet like-minded machine enthusiasts (you can join the Fair Organ Preservation Society on site) or simply wish to join the festival atmosphere, the rally will ensure an enjoyable afternoon.

The Northwest Vintage Fair and Organ Rally @ Victoria Park, Widnes, 27th-28th Sept, 10am-5pm, free, for more information and directions, visit www.northwestvintagerally.co.uk

On Song Showcase
A showcase of the city’s next generation of songwriting talents is taking place at the Carling Academy on Saturday night as part of the On Song festival, which comes to an exciting close on Monday when Travis take to the stage.

Headlining Saturday’s show are the charming new-wave punk poppers Go Faster who will no doubt win over any suspecting audience members with top tunes such as A Modern Education, NHS Dentist and Magazine Addiction.

Also on the bill are Married to the Sea, Wirral’s indie-rocking favourites My Amiga, Arms At Last and hot acoustic solo talent Natalie McCool.
