Is it spring? Or is it just a bit of winter sunshine? Whichever it is, the days are getting longer, daffodils and crocuses are showing their heads and folks who have been holed up all winter under blankets on the sofa and watching box sets may be considering emerging, going out and doing stuff.
So what stuff is there to do? As ever, our friend Chris over at Shop Local Southampton has put together comprehensive listings for the week, so click the link below and find something that it’s worth getting off the sofa for.
Amongst this week’s highlights are musical theatre remake of the classic Baz Luhrmann movie, Strictly Ballroom: The Musical at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre – click here for a review. Also on the stage is an adaptation of Treasure Island at Theatre Royal Winchester (click here for a preview), and comedic storytelling in Still Floating at The Point in Eastleigh (click here for a preview).
If you want to help make Southampton greener and friendlier but don’t know where to start, Transition Southampton’s AGM this week could be ideal – for more information about the event on Thursday, click here.
In music, Burfest festival is this weekend, Southampton-based samba rock band Tuto Tribe (pictured top) play a homecoming gig at Whiskey Blue (click here for a preview), King No-One is at The Joiners, Hayseed Dixie are at The Brook and so much more.
