Saturday night sees the iconic Stereophonics return to Birmingham at Resorts World Arena. Currently touring on the back of their latest studio album ‘Oochya!’ released earlier this month, the Welsh band are celebrating their 25th year with a sound that harks back to some of the band’s loudest moments, inspired by a garage rock sound.

March of the Mods at the Night Owl

March of the Mods will be on over at Night Owl in Digbeth this Saturday, an event full of live bands and DJ’s playing Mod & Scooterist music in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Bands include The Carlings, The Upper Fifth and Heavy Sol, with DJs such as Darren Bennet, Mark Tamplin and Richy Taylor making sure the party keeps going.

The company of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which is coming to Liverpool.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

And finally, a play based on a book which was a personal favourite of mine - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. The story follows an exceptional neuro-divergent boy who, after being wrongfully accused of killing his neighbour’s dog, sets out to investigate what really happened, only to discover something much deeper about his own life.
