W H AT ’ S O N What’s On Local START THE YEAR AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON BY GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE AND FINDING SOME FUN WHAT: DRIVE-IN CINEMA WHERE: SANDON HALL, SANDON, STAFFORDSHIRE WHEN: DATES THROUGHOUT JANUARY Drive-in entertainment was able to restart at the end of the national lockdown, despite many indoor entertainment venues having to remain closed. It’s seen a resurgence of drive-in cinema screenings around the country. The Great British Drive In, at Sandon Hall, is one of our absolute favourites. Members of the J’AIME team have been paying customers and heartily recommend it. It feels very safe and you have the backdrop of a stunning stately home behind the massive cinema screen. There’s no need to leave your car at all but if you do you can buy food prepared by Digbeth Dining Club. January’s films are set to include Grease, The Greatest Showman and Interstellar. WHAT: PANTOMIME WHERE: ALEXANDRA THEATRE, BIRMINGHAM WHEN: JANUARY 15 TO 31 At the time of going to print, Birmingham is still set to get a good old fashioned pantomime, Robin Hood, starring Craig Revel Horwood from Strictly Come Dancing as The Sheriff of Nottingham. The socially distanced, one-act show has been shortened so that members of the audience won’t risk mingling during an interval. The line-up is also due to include Richard Cadell and Sooty, Black Country favourite Doreen Tipton and Matt Slack who usually appears in panto at the Birmingham Hippodrome. Expect traditional panto fun at the end of a very untraditional year. WHAT: CHINESE NEW YEAR WHERE: LOCATIONS AROUND BIRMINGHAM WHEN: JANUARY 24 TO 26 At the time of going to press Birmingham city centre was still set to play host to elaborate celebrations to mark the Chinese New Year. COVID-19 may cause some plans to change, but you can still anticipate a riot of colour in Birmingham’s Chinatown. There’s due to be a wish tree in Grand central that visitors can add their own wishes to. There are also set to be stalls, street entertainers and performances. 36 www.jaimemagazine.com
