Something for the weekend (Easter Bank Holiday 08)

Sure as eggs is eggs
Calling all wannabe sleuths. Here’s what you’ve been waiting for – an Easter Egg Hunt!

It’s not just a case of turning up and collecting a prize however. You’ll be required to pick up a map at one of three locations. Only then will you be able to decipher a series of enigmatic clues in order to guide you to cultural hotspots around the city. I hope you’ve been practising your cryptic crosswords.

The clues will lead you to covert characters who will stamp your maps. And if you submit your completed form you could win a VIP lunch at Liverpool’s newest restaurant, “Panoramic” where you’ll also collect a silver egg worth £1000, created by fine jewellery designer David M Robinson.

Runners up will also have the chance to win family tickets to some of this year’s top events.

You don’t even have to complete the hunt in a single day. You can stretch it over the whole weekend if you so wish and it’s free to register. Rumour has it, there will also be some mysterious things happening to the Liver birds over this period. Play fair.

The Great Royal Liver Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday 22, Sunday 23 and Monday 24 March
10am – 5pm
Registration is on a first come first served basis and there are limited numbers – so get in quick!

To me, to you
They may be some people's worst nightmare but to a lot of kids, they're apparently still ruddy funny. The Chuckle Brothers are in Liverpool, delivering their own unique brand of slap stick guaranteed to involve some crazy mishaps and age long catchphrases. We all found them funny once, right? The hapless heroes are at the Empire this Sunday. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

Dancing in the Street
Motown is responsible for producing some of the world's most influential and most recognisable songs ever made.

Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes…they've all helped to create a catalogue of hits that have stood the rest of time and had us shuffling our feet appreciatively in la'go.

Now you can experience the energy and excitement of an era when Dancing in the Street comes to the Empire. The production will take you throught such hits as 'Baby Love', 'My Girl', and 'Tears of a Clown'. And you don't even have to making do with hearing it through the grapevine. Go and experience for yourself, the magic of Motown, that will not only have you dancing in the aisles, for also in the street.

Life is a cabaret
Wahay! It's Good Friday and Good Lord! What the heck is going on aboard Walk the Plank's theatre ship?!

The Potting Shed is back with a special Spanish themed Cabaret and just listen to some of the stuff you can expect…

A ballet that turns into an acrobatic act, the Ukulele Orchestra of Wales, the debut of stand up comedian Ralf the German, DJs, Spanish hits, impromptu dances…

It almost makes you feel a little drunk just thinking about it. If the bizarre scenes around Bold Street just don't cut it this Friday, why not go and gawk at the weird at wonderful scenes down by the water's edge.

The Potting Shed aboard Canning Dock (big blue ship next to Albert Dock)
Friday 21 March, doors open 7:30pm, entertainment beings 8:30pm
£7.50 – tickets can be bought in advance from www.walktheplank.co.uk

The "Panoramic"? No thanks! You have to go downtairs 34 storeys to nip out for a fag! Photos I've seen of the place show the customers as scruffy, unshaven layabouts. And I hear that the food's offal...

Perhaps the Chuckle Brothers can be persuaded to stand in the elections on 1st May? I'm sure they'd be able to run the Council better that all the other choices we are likely to have.

You can't get a table in the Panoramic until May, apparently. But I don't know anyone who has been so maybe they have just locked up the same crowd of usual suspects and freeloaders who went to the launch event and keep feeding them. I will tilt my black beret skyward to them if that is the case.

Talking of which. Those covert characters mentioned in the Easter Egg hunt... I wonder who they could be
