Singer-songwriter Kate Rusby arrives at Sage Gateshead for a glittering Christmas concert. Luxe checks in to find out what weekend downtime means to Kate and her family...

Friday night – gladrags or sofa? 

Friday night is definitely spent on the sofa. Two kids and two dogs means not many nights out these days.

A super Saturday?

Up – kids fed, then out for a lovely walk with our dogs. If it’s a nice day, perhaps a bit of time in the allotment, then out for tea and cinema with our girls. Then a nice glass of wine on the sofa watching I’m A Celebrity. Good day all round.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?

I would like to go to see Coldplay live. We had tickets for around the time Daisy was due, but I was far too massive to stand up in a crowd so I missed it. If I could see them in a lovely city like Barcelona, that would be amazing! Complete with incredible food and wine – preferably a bit of sunshine but not essential, I’ll be very happy with that.

Memorable mini-break?

My husband Damien got me a trip to Venice for a Christmas present one year. We went in April and it was just so beautiful and divine, I absolutely adored it. I have such fond memories of the food, the architecture, the wine and the food!

Sunday best?

All the family round to ours for pizza. We built a pizza oven in the garden this year and we are loving it. So sunshine, family and pizza is just the best Sunday ever.
