Bit of a historical theme going on this week - with a twist on the life and times of Henry VIII and a chance to party on like its the 1920s. Happy reading. Have fun whatever you decide to do!

Six at Birmingham Hippodrome - last night Saturday

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red. More information about the Tudor pop princess smash hit musical here

Peaky Blinders Nights at the Black Country Living Museum (Friday and Saturday & next weekend too)

Grab your finest cap or your flapper dress and make sure you’re looking your best, as you’ll be signing up to be an esteemed guest at a special Peaky Blinder family celebration. Those dancing feet had better be prepared for a night of fun and revelry as the roaring sounds of the 1920s fill the streets. Keep your eyes open though as things may not all be what they seem… with stories unfolding around you on every turn. More information about Peaky Blinders Nights here
