Mothers Day Pesto’s Picks
The Moscow City Ballet’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s epic tragedy Romeo and Juliet has a two-night run scheduled at the Manchester Opera House on the 15th and 16th March. A stunning combination of artistry, technique and narrative accompanied by an emotive dramatic score from the late award-winning composer Sergei Prokofiev is sure to make for an original and moving Mothers Day gift.
The festival runs from the 15th March till the 1st of April at venues across the City. Our personal highlights are Loose Women panelist Jenny Eclair and Father Ted’s Ardal O’Hanlon appearing at the Citizens Theatre, March 30th and the King’s Theatre, March 29th respectively.
Perhaps a little nostalgia would make the perfect Mothers Day gift, and what better way than to reminisce than a trip to the flicks to watch a modern-day classic? 80′s sci-fi romp Back to the Future returns to the big screen at Glasgow Cineworld on March 30th – this is set to be a sell-out so be sure to get tickets well in advance!
Over in Liverpool we have something that will delight music-loving mums – International Guitar Night – the world’s premier touring guitar festival. Lulo Reindhardt (nephew of the late, great Django Reindhardt), Brian Gore and Adrian Legg, touted by slick-fingered legend Joe Satriani as “simply the best acoustic guitar player I’ve ever heard” have been wielding their axes across the globe, and March 1st sees the show come to the Liverpool Philharmonic.
Whatever you do for Mothers Day you can be sure that a delicious meal washed down with our special Mothers Day cocktail the giola Di Mardi (Mothers Joy!) will be the perfect accompaniment to a perfect day! Why not book a table at your favourite Pesto now?
