Fantastic Mr Fox, The Orchard Theatre, Dartford, Tue 28 Feb – Sun 5 Mar
This is my son’s favourite of all the Roald Dahl stories and now this heart-warming and fun classic touring it’s got to be worth catching (no intended)… Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn’t realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers? And can Rabbit shut up long enough not to give the game away? Catch him if you can!
Entangled: Threads and Making, Turner Contemporary, Margate, Sat 28 Jan – Sun 7 May
Fancy a cultural trip to the coast? The Turner Contemporary has launched a major exhibition of sculpture, installation, tapestry, textiles and jewellery from the early 20th century to the present day. It features over 40 international female artists who take the traditional arts of knitting and embroidery, weaving, sewing and wood carving to a whole new and imaginative level.
La La Land, Trinity Theatre, Sun 5 Mar
Ryan Gosling – that’s all you need to know. What, you want more? OK, it’s a musical that even musical-haters will like, last week it won the most ever Golden Globes won by a single film (seven), and well there was that Oscars controversy too. It’s set in modern day LA, and it involves Emma Stone’s waitress character falling in love with Gosling’s jazz pianist. Well, who wouldn’t.
Chris Ramsey, The Orchard Theatre, Dartford, Sat 4 Mar
A brand new stand up show for 2017 from the comedian you’ve seen on The Chris Ramsey Show (Comedy Central), Virtually Famous (E4), I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp (ITV 2), Celebrity Juice, League Of Their Own and various newspapers when he was wrongly arrested in a hotel in his underpants!
