Theatre Royal Nottingham: English Youth Ballet - Swan Lake. Friday 27th July - Saturday 28th July. Performance 7.30pm, Saturday 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets £14-£20.

English Youth Ballet bring their brand new production of Swan Lake to the Theatre Royal. Set in Russia at the time when the Marinsky Ballet was popular with the Tsar and the Russian nobility, Swan Lake will be a traditional production but with particular emphasis on the rivalry between the beautiful but vulnerable White Swan, Odette, and the seductively evil Black Swan, Odile, as they compete for the affections of the Prince. A rivalry that leads to a tragic and dramatic finale.

Sheffield City Hall: Frankie Boyle. Friday 10th August-Saturday 11th August. Performance at 8pm. Tickets £25.

Frankie Boyle has been pilloried, misrepresented and demonised. And for what? For Telling It Like It Is. Now he will attempt a final tour, to heal Britain’s fools. To support its rioters. To offer the inchoate laughter of despair to a culture in freefall. These are The Last Days of Sodom. Please note this show is not suitable for under 16s.
