About: Do Something Different Weekend

Join us for a full weekend of visual art, theatre, music, dance, film and literature activities for families and adults to do (and learn) something different.

The Bellboys (Les Grooms)

Join The Bellboys (Les Grooms) on a magical musical journey in and around the Barbican. Musicians, singers and dancers unite to create an energetic and fun promenade performance for all the family.

Id love to have a beer with Duncan
Duncan Sarkies

Sit back, relax and drink an ale as Duncan Sarkies spins yarns from his book, Two Little Boys, which has just been released in the UK. A word of warning: The language gets a bit colourful, and the characters are extremely poor role models, so stay at home if you are easily offended!
