Monday Digest: What's On In NE1 This Week?
Diaries at the ready for another wonderful week in NE1. Strut to the Theatre Royal for an all-singing, all-dancing production, get your Monday foodie fix at Revs, join a circus skills workshop, join Diane Shaw for an evening of dazzling music and follow the tale of Fagin at Northern Stage.
MONDAY 29 OCTOBER - SUNDAY 4 NOVEMBER 2018
29 October - 10 November
The all-singing, all-dancing production of Kinky Boots struts its way up to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal this week, and we can’t wait to fall head over heels in love with it! This high-kicking party features songs by pop icon Cyndi Lauper and takes theatre-goers on a glamorous journey from the factory floor to the catwalks of Milan! Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations within the family business; and with the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola - a performer in need of some new stilettos. Gather your whole gang and get down to the Theatre Royal this week for a side-splitting, sass-fuelled show!

30 & 31 October
See Charles Dickens’ tale in a new light at Northern Stage this October. Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of the notorious and complex villain we all know from Oliver Twist. This production by Avant Garde Dance Company and The Place, imagines Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty. Flipping your expectations of five familiar characters in contemporary hip-hop style, this is a must-see show in NE1 this autumn!
