Dates for your diary – this week

From Bowie to Bees, it’s all happening this week…

Of Mice and Men

Part of the ‘Out to Lunch Festival’, Steinbeck’s classic story of drifters George (Michael Roy Andrew) and his simple minded friend Lennie (Nigel Miles-Thomas) covers friendship, a shared vision and giving voice to America’s dispossessed during the Great Depression. A great score and rave reviews make this a must on your lunch or dinner break. You’ll find it at the Black Box, Belfast on January 19th; Afternoon Doors 12.45pm | Unreserved Seating; Evening Doors 7.45pm | Unreserved Seating. Tickets: £6.50/£7 (afternoon) and £9 (evening)

Of Mice and Men

Beginners Bee Keeping Course

Okay, not your typical night out, but if you’re looking for a new hobby or have an interest in bees then down in Armagh you’ll find founding member of Armagh and Monaghan Beekeepers Association, Mr Sean Barrett, discussing the history and use of the Beehouse. The intro evening of what is a 10-week course will take place at Hughes Bar, Middletown, Armagh on Wednesday 2oth Jan at 8pm. Definitely a conversation starter.


Rock ’n Roll Years and Dance Hall Days

Into golden oldies? This is for you. And your granny. This Grand Opera House Event ‘will see audiences relive all the memories of a decade that saw the birth of pop, from the ballads of Ruby Murray, Perry Como and Dean Martin to the early rock ’n’ roll hits of Buddy Holly, Brenda Lee and Bill Hailey’. It stars Clubsound, Joe Mac, Elaine Wood, Janet McCartney and Trevor Kelly. (Thursday 21st)


Treehouse presents… Labyrinth

We’re loving this fantastic tribute to Bowie at the Treehouse in Arthur Street, Belfast. A screening of the Labyrinth mixed with tapas and hot cider as well as a DJ playing a monumental Bowie track list has ace night out written all over it. Starts at 5.30pm on January 22nd and costs £15pp.
