Then, on Friday from 2.30pm, the group is hosting a workshop at the Grundy Art Gallery in Blackpool– creating works in response to the current exhibition, Love Life by Emma Hart and Jonathan Baldock.

The exhibition is a re-imagining of the Punch and Judy story.

The Grundy’s education officer, Taneesha Ahmed, will be on hand to support the session.

Both events are free. Email [email protected] to book the Grundy event.

• The stage version of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny will be back at Preston Guild Hall from May 2 to 5, following a West End summer season.

It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo boring. But Granny has a secret.

Tickets on sale now, from £16.50. Call 01772 804444 to book.
