MOTHER'S DAY AFTERNOON TEA WITH THE FAMILY
30 & 31 March
The Vermont Hotel is hosting a fabulous afternoon tea feast this Mother’s Day for all the family to enjoy. Round up your mams, your stepmams and your nanas, it’s time to sweeten them up with cakes and finger sandwiches. Served on both Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st March, with two sittings available at 1pm and 4pm, it’s the perfect excuse to treat the lady in your life to a day of delicious dining.
Discover the Laing with your little ones and support their early development as part of one of the gallery’s fun and relaxed Little Artists workshops, which explore a different theme each week. Each session involves a warm up with movement and motion, gallery exploration with fun interactive activities, a practical art activity with various materials and a short story time.
AN EVENING WITH ALFIE BOE
25 & 26 March
One of the world’s greatest classical singers, Alfie Boe, makes his return to the stage with a brand new tour, marking what is becoming another landmark year for the much-loved tenor. Considered one of the best vocalists of his generation, the multi-platinum selling artist always delivers sensational live shows and this one promises to be his best yet, celebrating the golden era of music from the 30s and 40s!
MUSEUM OF THE MOON
Until 6 May
Don’t miss Life Science Centre’s out-ofthis-world exhibition, Museum of the Moon - a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition, created by award-winning composer Dan Jones. The works displays the lunar surface in incredible detail on a seven-metre-wide sphere that’s suspended in the air. Massive, magnificent and mesmerising, it uses imagery captured by the NASA spacecraft Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and, at an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the sphere represents five kilometres of the Moon’s surface.
