La Cage Aux Folles: Bill Kenwright presents the first UK tour of the Tony and Olivier award-winning production, with John Partridge as Albin, who moonlights as star drag act Zaza at the infamous nightclub.

In Austen’s Footsteps - Ongoing event

Various locations

Art trail: ‘Sitting With Jane’ features 25 sculptural benches, all shaped like an open book. Each is uniquely designed and painted by a professional artist in a style inspired by Jane Austen’s life and times in Basingstoke, Steventon and the surrounding area. Venture on this art trail to explore (and sit in) places and landscapes that were important influences on Jane’s life and work – often undiscovered by visitors. Once the trail closes, each sculpture will be auctioned for a local charity.
