FILM: Les Miserables at Phoenix Square, Midland Street, Leicester.
Les Miserables, directed by The King’s Speech filmmaker Tom Hooper, is in the running for best picture at this year’s Oscars so we think that’s a decentenough recommendation and reason to add it to this “things to do” list . It features an all-star cast, all singing live. Set in revolutionary France, it tells the story of escaped convict Jean Valjean and those he comes into contact with in his quest for redemption whilst being tracked relentlessly by police inspector Javert. When: Friday 4:30pm and 8pm; Saturday 1pm, 4:30pm and 8pm; Sunday noon, 3:30pm and 7pm.
See the website www.phoenix.co.uk for more details.
SPORT: Leicester Riders v Newcastle Eagles at NIA Arena, Birmingham.
It’s a bit of a trek and it’s not Leicestershire but on Sunday Leicester Riders have a massive game – they take on Newcastle Eagles at the National Indoor Arena, in Birmingham, in the BBL Cup final. Leicester have gone 12 years without silverware so a trophy win is well overdue.
