What do all the young, swinging theatrical types do when the quiz night at the local boozer has been cancelled? They put on a show of their own, that's what.
Improvaggedon is the sort of event that would leave the Summer Holiday shenanigans of Cliff Richard, Melvin Hayes and Hank Marvin in the, er, shadows.
Four teams take part in this It's A Knockout for luvvies – but only one team leaves in this epic improvised battle.
Improv duelling at its sharpest and you, the audience, decide who shall be crowned champion.
All profits go to the winning team’s choice of charity.
Featuring some of the best North West improvisers Improvaggedon is in it's 3rd year at Unity Theatre.
Improvaggedon, Unity Theatre, Hope Place, Wednesday April 30, 8pm, £8. Tickets 0151 709 4988.
Jane's Walk last year in the Baltic zone
Walking the walk
Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an American-Canadian writer who revolutionised the way people think about cities and their development.
An eminent critic of urban renewal policies which fostered crime and poverty, “her thinking has had a positive impact on cities all over the world, including Liverpool”.
So says Matt Biagetti of Liverpool Vision, one of the people who will be leading one of two walking tours in Jane Jacobs' name, in Liverpool later this week.
600 Jane's Walks will be held this week in cities around the world. They aren't for tourists, particularly, rather they aim to encourage those who live or work in cities to discover and appreciate something more about the places they inhabit.
The Liverpool walks, this year, will centre around what is now referred to as the Ropewalks area, led by Matt Biagetti, and Baltic Triangle, led by Gerry Proctor.
Jane's Walk, Ropewalks: Thursday May 1, 6.30pm.*
Baltic Triangle: Saturday May 3, noon, meeting at Baltic Fleet pub, Wapping.
*To find out where the Ropewalks event starts from, you could try emailing them firstname.lastname@example.org
Waterloo Beer Festival
We're going on a beer hunt
IT'S not often that the people get treated to a beer festival right across a Bank Holiday weekend, but this year Liverpool Organic Brewery have decided to show you a bit of love.
So heads up for the seventh Waterloo Beer Festival, taking place in the cool sandstone surroundings of Old Christ Church, L22, this Thursday right through till Sunday.
Saturday night is sold out but don't let that stop you from attending any of the other afternoon and evening sessions. After all, it's not like you have to get up or anything the next day and there is a groovy beach just down the road for you to salute the sunset when they chuck you out. Not to mention the Volunteer Canteen pub for one or two for the road on the way back to Waterloo Station.
Food will be provided by the Liverpool Nut Company, so no chance of being to full up to knock a few more ales back. 200 of them in all!
There are still tickets left, but hurry.
Waterloo Beer Festival, Old Christchurch, Waterloo Rd, L22 1RE, Thursday, 1 May 2014 6pm, to Sunday, 4 May 2014 at 6pm. Tickets £5-£7, here
