Les Misérables | Birmingham Hippodrome | Now – Saturday, May 11
In case you haven’t heard, Les Misérables has landed in Birmingham. The Olivier Award-winning musical is at Birmingham Hippodrome for the next five weeks and if you’ve got tickets, trust us when we say you’re in for a treat.
It’s been 10 years since Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s reimagined version of the classic production visited the Hipp as part of its 25th anniversary, but Les Mis still appears to be as popular with Birmingham as it was in 2009, as the entire run is practically sold-out. There are some solo tickets still up for grabs though, so click here to take a look.
But, if you don’t fancy going it alone, then you’ll be pleased to know that Les Misérables is returning to the Hippodrome for a second run in 2020. The production returns to the Hippodrome Tuesday, June 30 – Saturday, July 18. Tickets go on general sale Friday, April 12 at 11am, so be ready and waiting, because you’ll need to storm the barricades for a ticket!
Paint & Prosecco | Ju Ju’s Cafe | Sunday
While we’re not denying that spending a Sunday at home isn’t one of the greatest luxuries that comes with a weekend, but there’s no harm in getting out and about and exploring the city.
This Sunday, why not join PopUp Painting at Ju Ju’s Cafe for a night of painting and prosecco, while you unleash your creativity and try your hand at painting Rob Conway‘s Van Gogh inspired Starry Night.
Ju Ju’s also serves one of the most cracking Sunday roasts in the city centre too, so paying a visit here could be a great way to cure those one too many drinks you treated yourself to the night before.You can book tickets for Paint & Prosecco here.
