Something for the weekend (14-16 December)

Something for the weekend (14-16 December)

Titter ye not
With everything seemingly aimed at the kids at this time of year, you're probably sick to death of pantos and nativity plays. With this in mind, you may well be after something a little more adult in its material. If this is the case, look no further than Terry Titter. The barmy scouser is back at the Unity with his ever popular improvisation show - a sell out last year.

It's hard to put Mr T's persona quite into words. Camp - certainly. Bizarre - totally. Funny - extremely. It's totally off the wall - it can only be Terry Titter.

The greatest tale ever told?
A nativity play with a twist hits the streets of Liverpool this Sunday night, and guess what? It's such a big deal, that it's even being broadcast live on BBC3. The Liverpool Nativity, a follow-on from the awesome and original Manchester Passion last year, will feature a host of well known Merseyside actors including Geoffrey Hughes, Joe McGann, Cathy Tyson and Jennifer Ellison.

The starting point for this anomalous adaptation will be William Brown Street, its fabulous backdrop and surrounding listed building providing the perfect setting for the contemporary re-telling of this festive treat.

Executive Producer Sue Judd said: "This is the largest televised music drama ever attempted live on any city's streets. It will involve more than 300 cast and 150 technical crew. It's an incredibly exciting production."

Familiar songs from Liverpool's great musical past will provide the soundtrack to the play, including tracks from The La's, The Zutons and The Beatles.

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra will also be entertaining the throngs outside St. George's Hall. You can be part of it all, by getting down to William Brown Street for 8pm. Or just watch it on the telly.

Your cup of tea?
Now this sounds like a good antidote to the stresses of Christmas - an afternoon of soothing and soulful, laid back beats. The venue is Leaf, a tea shop and coffee bar situated in Static Gallery on Roscoe Street. DJ Phat Phil Cooper will be making the musical selections and aside from the chilled out tunes and high quality loose teas, there's also a special recovery menu which features vitamin-packed teas and juices, pastas and chill. And for those of you who would prefer something more indulgent, there's also a selection of beers and wines. Let's just hope you don't get too comfy. There's still one week left at work, you know.

Where's the beach?
You can leave your novelty hats at home for this one. Down on Berry Street this Friday night, The Dragon bar are hosting an anti-Christmas Hawaiian shirt party! Top DJs will be spinning great (non Christmas) tunes and you're all invited to attend - in flowery shirts if possible. It may just be the only place in town where you can get away from baubles and Band Aid.
