Something For The Weekend: 2-4/11/07

This weekend is your chance to view history's most notorious philanderer as you've never seen him/her before. The legend of Casanova is twisted and modified somewhat by our local award winning poet Carol Ann Duffy. She presents the well known bed hopper, not as a chaser of skirt, but in fact a chaser of trouser - a foxy, empowering female opposed to the smooth, charming male we associate “a Casanova” with being.

A tale of feminism and women's allurement over males then? Not quite. Duffy actually describes the play as a portrait of "how and who we love, and about how love can't be bidden". With that in mind ladies, you can forget the urge to burn your bras in the middle of the Playhouse.

Casanova @ The Liverpool Playhouse, Williamson Square
Friday 3rd November and Saturday 4th November

The district of Garston is regularly quoted as being one of Liverpool's 'up and coming' areas. Not content with its gradual ascendance into greatness, some of Garston's more radical inhabitants are leading a revolt - of sorts. On Saturday, the people of Garston are invited to the Wellington Street school building, the proposed site for a Community Arts and Creative Business Centre designed to give the talented young folk living in the community great opportunities to flourish and develop. The Revolution will focus on Garston's potential as a creative centre with a view to the longer term physical and cultural regeneration of the area. Artist, Michael Trainor will highlight the plans for installation, already dubbed as "The Garston Embassy", presenting the proposals for the short and long term use of the building.

Politics are all well a good but what would a revolution be without a bonfire and fireworks, some food and drink and wait for it...Ferro Rochers. Yes they've been promised too but could that just be a devious ploy to make us join the anarchy? Who cares. It's a revolution man.

Although not strictly “something for the weekend”, we don't want you to miss out on your deserved dose of fireworks. The 5th of November is the date Mr Fawkes was rumbled and, therefore, Monday shall be the date in which gunpowder treason is remembered.

Liverpool hosts its annual fireworks displays, complete with synchronised music and it will take place at 7:30pm in Sefton Park, Newsham Park and Walton Hall. (There is no waterfront display this year). Wrap up warm, lock up your pets and celebrate the fact that you don't have to give a penny to any stupid guy for another 11 months. Christmas carol season however, is fast approaching...

Duke Ellington once said 'it don't mean a thing (if it ain't got that swing). The Duke certainly wouldn't be saying such things about The National Conservation Centre! From this Sunday, once you're done taking in the art, you can sit down and listen to a bit of jazz. Every week, diners can enjoy the smooth tones of Tony! Tony! Tony! and The Martin Smith quartet who will be playing jazz classics and latino grooves designed to wind you down before before you're wound back up at work on Monday.
