Having a Ball

Australia’s national ballet company, The Australian Ballet, presents this award-winning production of Cinderella.

Created by Alexei Ratmansky, one of the world’s most sought after choreographers, the production features the extraordinary designs of Jerome Kaplan. Cinderella attends the King’s Ball and meets the handsome Prince, who travels the kingdom with her glass slipper to find her.

Will they live happily ever after?

• When: March 1

• Where: Kings Theatre, Albert Road, Southsea PO5 2SH, kingsportsmouth.co.uk

Jane’s Local Life

Head to the Langstone Room and join Elizabeth Proudman for this fascinating talk, Jane Austen and her family ties. June 2017 marks 200 years since Jane Austen’s death. She was born in the village of Steventon, and although she lived for a few years in Bath, she spent the majority of her life in Hampshire and her six novels were all written here – three in Steventon and three in Chawton. Elizabeth Proudman will be discussing Jane’s childhood and her family.

• When: March 11

• Where: The Forge, Churchill Way, RG21 7QR, www.anvilarts.org.uk

Hitting the Heights

Think of Flight Brigade as a family and you will start to understand their chemistry. Hear their songs as epic stories to which each member is essential and you begin to grasp what makes their music so incredibly powerful.

The grand orchestral sweeps, the crunching anthemic guitars, the striking mix of male and female have brought Flight Brigade comparisons to Arcade Fire and Of Monsters and Men, other pop troupes who refused to compromise their size for the sake of their sound.

Expect an amazing live performance from the band from Liss.

• When: March 25

• Where: West End Centre, Aldershot Queens Road, Aldershot GU11 3JD, hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk/west-end-centre

Lowdown on Gin

Discover the history of the distillery, the distilling process and different styles of gin available. Gin and Bear It is a must for gin enthusiasts and newcomers. Booking is essential.

• When: March 10

• Where: Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Jermyns Lane, Romsey SO51 0QA, www3.hants.gov.uk/hilliergardens

Fright Night

Brace yourself for a gripping and terrifying performance of The Woman In Black and then venture on a haunted theatre tour on this theatre and ghost walk. Led by Victorian ghost expert Professor Frederick, wander through the corridors in the hope of encountering spectral residents from the past 160 years. According to legend, the ghost of Henry Rutley, who opened New Theatre Royal in 1856, is said to wander the corridors of the theatre, as is former theatre manager, Herbert Ralph who committed suicide in 1923. Spooky!

Bound to be a Hoot

Wrap up warm, take a torch and step out in the dark with the owls. Held on Saturday evenings throughout the spring, these enchanting ‘Owls by Moonlight’ events give visitors the opportunity to see the owls really awake and at their best. Expect a magical evening with these beautiful feathered creatures. Plus enjoy a light supper as part of the experience.
