Tonight!!!! 4pm and 7pm at the Unity Theatre

Tonight ‘Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf’ returns for another spell of frothbuggling family fun. This high energy physical theatre performance, suitable for ages 5-105, brings sheer bliss from beginning to end!

It takes you deep into the wood where you embark on a journey of love, loss and self-discovery.

Right from the beginning young and old are immersed into a frantic, energy fuelled production of dance, music, drama and storytelling.

You are invited into this enchanted wood and driven on a roller-coaster of emotions. You consider your own personal journey of unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be.

The evenings experience will give you an insight as well as the tensions between mankind and nature.

This is a bold entertaining story of the well known classic tale, packing a punch that all will enjoy.
This production is for one night only but you can catch it later at the Whitby Hall Ellesmere Port 24th Jan and at St Helens Citadel 11th Feb. This is a great outing for all the family to enjoy.

But remember….. are the wolves really the villains in a world were the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And…..is Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

Don’t stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds or climb a tree, remember these words……
and make your way tonight to Liverpool’s Unity Theatre. (0151 709 4988) Enjoy!

Unity Theatre Presents ‘Omnibus’ 8pm -Sat 17th June

A raucous evening of entertainment brought to life in a sizzling new stage World Premier play by the winner of the prestigious Hope Playwriting Prize.

This play is the perfect night out for people who like laughing. It’s funny, shamelessly brash and a little bit rude but certainly good enough for your granny!

Beginning, with the scene of a typical afternoon in a shared house. One in the kitchen getting the roast on, two on the sofa watching the omnibus and one on the floor having a few wines. The biggest decision that needs to be made is when to put the roasties in. Yes, but, the one who is cooking can’t cook. And the one drinking the wine shouldn’t really drink. And the ones watching the telly were definitely not expecting the drama they were watching to come to life.
Yes, come to life!
This is a smooth and powerful production with a tangled web of deception being unearthed throughout the night. Is anyone who they say they are? And how far will they go to keep their secret?

A daring, audacious and sublimely, riotously funny play from this Royal Court Liverpool, in association with Unity Theatre production, that prompts gales of laughter during this two hour evening performance.

Forget boring night telly, and check-out this clever show, pushing the boundaries of comedy and join Mark, Lauren, Neil and sexy stupid Jess in a fast moving comedy about modern life, relationships and prize nutcases with guns.

You will love this rip-roaring play which makes for hilarious viewing in this modern, newly refurbished truly electrifying Unity Theatre.

A true gem of a production by Katie Mulgrew and directed by Robert Farquhar.

Ziferblat (Russian to English): Clockface

Ziferblat has just opened a second venue in Liverpool’s business district. An interesting eating concept and one which I took to immediately on a visit to the Albert Dock Colonnades some time ago.

This is the name for a new kind of social space; where everything is free except the time you spend there. The idea was founded in Moscow by Ivan Meetin back in 2011 with Ziferblat meaning in a way, I suppose, a “treehouse for adults”.

At 8p per minute; this pay-by-the minute ‘cafe’ has had great success so another has opened in St Paul’s Square. This phenomenal cafe idea is also a first for Liverpool having two Ziferblat’s opening in one city.
Visit Unit 7 The Colonnades Albert Dock http://www.ziferblat.co.uk

On arrival, you get a shared space in which you are free to work, study, relax, hold a meeting or workshop, read a book, play piano (although I stopped when sensing the needs of others with the’peace and quiet’ looks.
There are lots of opportunities also to get acquainted with people through the enjoyable events held in one or more of the homely rooms dotted around the cafe.

I like Ziferblat, with this idea of each little guest becoming a micro tenant of the space and ‘living’ in their little home area, where you can help yourself to all the kitchen goodies or special Ziferkitchen treats. All drinks and snacks are free, including cakes, fresh coffee, tea varieties, biscuits, fruits, breads, cereals, brownies, juices and some super strength Wi-Fi.

Make Ziferblat a must for your unwinding at the Albert Dock which may be a little busy at the weekend but the new commercial district venue is a hit on weekdays. I found the free wifi available for as long as you stay a great bonus in the Ziferblat atmosphere.

An early morning meeting I had last week at Ziferblat, was a great hit with colleagues who raided the kitchen area stocked with juices, cakes, breads, cereals and we even had a bacon sandwich!
Meeting rooms are charged at a lower rate of 6p per minute.

In all, you will not be sorry with time spent at Ziferblat so….in your own time…….take a visit this week.
