Weekend Round Up – 12th to 14th March

Clunky-dory
Clunk is the story of three co-habiting ‘young adults’ who struggle to understand and fit into the world around. If dissatisfaction and alienation are what you seek out for kicks then this is the thing for you.

Produced by ip-and-coming Suitcase Theatre company , it comes to Liverpool’s Unity Theatre this weekend.

With an off the cuff comedic style accompanied by surreal dream sequences, this piece of theatre will be enjoyed by fans of comedy, puppetry, and anyone who likes a good existential ponder.

Sharing traits with legendary comedy acts like Monty Python and the Young Ones, Clunk threads together a consistent story that reads like a stream of consciousness dream sequence.

Having made its UK premiere in June 2009 it has received rave reviews and now includes additional visual and puppet direction from Liz Walker of the world renowned surreal puppet company Faulty Optic. if you miss it, it's on at the Brindley, Runcorn, later in the month.

Clunk @ Liverpool Unity Theatre – 12th to 13th March. Tickets costing £9 and £7 concessions are available on 0844 873 2888 or at www.unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk.

Get your Kitten off
Liz McClarnon, she of Atomic Kitten and Celebrity Masterchef, is your host this time for another leg of the BBC’s omnipresent Sport Relief drive.

Here the object is to get your Sport Relief shirt on and take a stroll in the name of charidee.

The event is promoting the Sport Relief Mile taking place in Liverpool and other places across the UK on March 21st.

There is a sub-plot; walkers and other attendees are encouraged to bling themselves up a little and make themselves as fashionable as possible.

Here’s Ms. McClarnon to shill the event for us:

“I’m looking forward to returning to my home turf and judging some of the best styles on the day I absolutely love the T-shirts and can’t think of a better way for people to get involved. Buy one for friends, family, neighbours, colleagues……and come and join me in the most fashionable walk of the year!”

The Fashion themed warm up will take place on 13th March from 11:00am in Sefton Park (near to the junction of Aigburth Drive and Mossley Hill Drive at the boating lake). Adult T-shirts are priced at £9.99 with at least £5 going to Sport Relief. Children’s T-shirts are also available exclusively in-store and online at Sainsbury’s www.sainsburys.co.uk, TK Maxx www.tkmaxx.com and www.sportrelief.com.*Sport Relief Warm-Up Walk @ Sefton Park – Saturday 13th March.

Smiths-u-like
With Morrissey firmly entrenched in Los Angeles, Johnny Marr playing weekend dad for The Cribs and the other two out of the picture post-courtroom appearances, The Smiths, like their Queen, are well and truly dead.

Their seminal 1985 album Meat Is Murder is 25 years old. Scary, isn’t it? With The Smiths well and truly out of contention for a reunion gig to celebrate this fact it’s left to the most prominent tribute act to pick up the pieces.

For those of you who miss gladiola waving, opened dandyish shirts, proto-Flock of Seagulls hairdos and moping this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Expect an album run through and some of the old classics. Yes, it’s a tribute band and not the real thing, but like Morrisey says “...what difference does it make?”The Smiths Indeed @ O2 Academy, Friday 12th March: – Doors @ 7pm. Box Office 08444 77 2000. Tickets priced £10 all admissions.

Chilli-out time for mother
Mothers, eh? For the most part they look after us, clean up after us, swoop in with life saving loans and if you’re lucky enough can be a trusted confidante.

Some roll their eyes at Mother’s Day. “More crass commercialisation!” they tut, but I think Mother’s Day should be given a free pass. It’s a worthy cause.

To celebrate, Liverpool’s own Chilli Banana restaurant is laying on a weekend of Mother’s Day feasting for all. On offer will be a specially created banquet menu featuring great dishes including Slow cooked Massaman Lancashire beef curry , fresh Scottish Scallops and freshly filleted sea bass cooked in a number of great Thai styles.

There’s also a homemade dessert menu featuring all your favourites and a selection of wines, so Mum can get tipsy and remind you of the time when you were three years old and ran out of the house naked. Some things never change, do they?

Adults £13.95 for a set menu. Under 12s £8.95. Booking is recommended. Menus available to view or download at www.chillibanana.co.uk/liverpool for more information email Liverpool@chillibanan.co.uk or call on 0151 7268641.
