The Curing House on Bedford Street has launched a new weekly event to give people the chance to try more unusual wines and beers – for free. ‘Open Bottle Thursday’ offers diners a free, specially-selected beer or wine with every two-course meal. The charcuterie bar and restaurant offers a varied selection of wines and beers from around the UK and around the world, including new-to-the-menu gluten-free ‘Alt-Brew’ beers which are specially-brewed in America.

FOR THEATRE…

May 2-6

A return of Matthew Bourne is always a treat for dance fans and his daring version of The Red Shoes at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal promises to be full of his trademark fervour, provocation and drama. It’s the story of a girl’s dream to dance, told to a punchy score by Hollywood Bernard Herrmann. Pay a visit, we’re lucky to have it.
