WHAT'S ON THIS WEEK

Paul Sinha (aka The ‘Sinnerman’) returns to South Tyneside with his brand new live show. Having spent two decades juggling disparate careers and an overwhelming urge to show off his general knowledge, he finds that just as one problem disappears, another one suddenly emerges. Paul is forty-eight and is pondering the unthinkable. Is he past it? Was Shakespeare wrong? Are there only Two Ages of Man? See him this Saturday at Customs House, South Shields.
