It's the start of a new week — and a new entertainment line-up.
If you're feeling the Monday blues, there's plenty going on across West Yorkshire to liven up your day — from a lunchtime concert to knock-out stand-up comedy.
Here's three things to do today:
- Enjoy a lunchtime organ concert with Gordon Stewart : Join Gordon Stewart at Huddersfield Town Hall for an organ concert at 1pm. And today's a special one — to celebrate Andrew Carter's 75th birthday, Gordon has included three of his pieces in this programme: the Festal Fanfare, the Aria and the Three Variants. New to the town hall concert series are John Bertalot's variations for pedals and an exciting Toccata by Enrico Bossi. Tickets cost £5 (£3.50 concessions) — click here for more information.
See the Kite Runner in Leeds: The best-selling book and acclaimed film has been adapting for the stage, and West Yorkshire Playhouse's production promises to leave 'a lasting impression on anyone it touches'. Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and childhood friends, Amir (Ben Turner - Casualty) and Hassan are about to be torn apart. It's a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament. But neither of the boy scan foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives. Tickets cost £12-£28 — click here to book.
Celebrate the King of Pop at the Alhambra: Global superstar Michael Jackson may have passed away in 2009 — but his legend lives on with Thriller Live! Seen by over 2.5 million people in over 26 countries, the hit show continues to moonwalk around the world, taking you on a visual, audio and electrifying journey through the magic of Michael's 45 year musical history. It takes to the stage at the Alhambra, Bradford, tonight at 7.30pm — tickets cost £20-£31. Click here to book.
