Something for the weekend (22-24 Feb, 08)

Music and passion are always the fashion in Ben Patey's pick of things to do - and you can do a lot worse than check this lot out

Something for the weekend (22-24 Feb, 08)

Ice, ice baby
Ahhh. Remember a time when Queen Victoria ruled the waves and travelling the world was a real adventure - a real chance to explore and to discover? Well, strictly speaking, you may not remember but it doesn't mean we can't look back on times gone by nevertheless.

Let us head then to the Unity Theatre where a brave explorer sets sail for the shores of Antarctica in search of the perfect iceberg. But when he discovers a mysterious young stowaway, he's taught more about perfection, and himself, then he ever could have imagined.

Award winning children's theatre company en masse bring you their moving, musical tale of Victorian Britain.

The Iceberg @ The Unity Theatre, Hope Place
Friday 22 February 1:30pm and Saturday 23 February 2.00pm
0151 709 4988
Tickets £8.00 / £6.00 concessions

Superfly guys
Down on Berry Street, Superfly returns to The Lemon Lounge. Music will come primarily from The Beat Monkeys who, having played alongside the likes of Dizzy Rascal, Groove Armada, Jazzy Jeff and John Peel, have earned themselves the respect of clubbers worldwide.

Monotonous they are not. Hip-hop, funk, house, electro, drum and bass, breaks...you name it, they'll throw in the mix. The duo, who also hold a residency at Liverpool's Chibuku, use four decks and two mixes in their sets, scratching over the various genres they pump out.

Doctor, doctor
Most of you will be well aware, that some of the best pints in town are pulled down at Dr Duncan's. But let us not forget Dr D. himself, and how he came to prominence in Liverpool.

At the Liverpool Maritime Museum, you can find out about Dr William Henry Duncan and his role as the City's first medical officer of health. You can find out what living conditions were like for the poor in the 1800s and the work Dr Duncan did to campaign against poor living conditions the provision for clean water supplies.

We obviously don't advocate excessive drinking, but it may be rude not to have a pint in the pub named in his honour, once you're done at the museum. And mine's a Cain's FA.
