Welcome to the weekend! There's live blues music, English theatre, a country-wide sports night with fun activities, a radio talk and a workshop to build your own toothbrush robot. The choice is yours!
1. Feel the blues with Remo Cavallini at Rockhal
What: Blues Power live show
Where: Rockhal, 5 Avenue du Rock'n'Roll, L-4083 Esch-sur-Alzette
When: Friday, 4 June at 6.30pm - info & tickets here
Live music at Rockhal is back, with concerts up to 1,000 guests now permitted under the strict supervision of Luxembourg's Health Inspectorate (visitors are tested before and seven days after the gig). Following Serge Tonnar's grand opening several weeks back, "Southern Bluesman" Remo Cavallini is now hitting the Rockhal stage with a fantastic line-up of musicians, all to bring you the rhythmic soul and melodic touch of blues with their joint musical virtuosity and energy.
2. Get tickets to one-woman show Road to Huntsville
What: Moving, funny and thought-provoking play
Where: Neimenster, 28 Rue Münster, L-2160 Luxembourg
When: Monday, 7 June - Wednesday, 9 June at 8pm - info & tickets here
Originally performed by the author, STEPH is a writer who researches women that fall in love with - and often marry - murderers on death row. She wants to understand why. What makes seemingly steady and sensible people do this? How far will she go to get the story she wants? Using multi-media projections and video clips, this one-woman show looks at what makes some women so attracted to men of violence, even to killers, through a mixture of factual presentation and personal stories. This is the third production in the BGT's programme to promote young performers and to put women more at the forefront of theatre.
3. Learn about radio and sound at Rotondes
What: Insight into profession
Where: Rotondes, 3, Place des Rotondes, L‑2448 Luxembourg-Bonnevoie
When: Friday, 4 June at 8pm - info & tickets here
Ten radio presenters from the Greater Region are coming together this weekend and presenting their ways of working, while also offering sound examples and hosting audio experiments. The latter is called The Compression Chamber, in which two microphones are exposed to extreme compression in the room and the audience will hear the result through their headphones. Every candy wrap, every moving chair leg, and every breath suddenly becomes audible - an intriguing experience!
4. Discover scenic bike routes around Luxembourg
What: Pedal to the metal
Where: Locations vary
When: Anytime, read the article
Luxembourg is a paradise for cyclists. Whether you are a seasoned cyclist or just looking to go for a ride, you’re sure to find a route for every occasion. Our contributor Iris Dudek has picked out a few of her favourite scenic bike routes spanning across the country to get you out and about and pedalling away. One path even takes you across three rivers: the Moselle, the Our, and the Sûre...
5. Watch Slalom, a film about a rising ski star
What: Pressure at the top
Where: Ciné Utopia, 16 Avenue de la Faiencerie, 1510 Luxembourg
When: Friday, 4 June - Sunday, 6 June, times vary - info & tickets here
This is a strange season to be releasing a movie that contains snowflakes, but it may just motivate you to book a lovely winter holiday again. Under the guidance of a strict ex champion, a promising 15 year old girl trains as a professional skiing star. But will she be able to endure the physical and emotional pressures?
6. Let kids build their own mini robot
What: For ages 10-12
Where: Trifolion, 2 Porte St Willibrord, L-6486 Echternach
When: Saturday, 5 June at 10am - info & tickets here
In this entertaining workshop, children learn the basics of electrical circuits in a playful manner while building their own small robots. The speedster consists of a regular toothbrush and a little vibration motor (like the one found in a cell phone). Then, the brush is set in motion and off it goes! Kids can create their own designs and of course take them home after.
7. Discover new activities during Night Of Sport
What: Get sweaty!
Where: Various communes around the country
When: Saturday, 5 June from 12pm-9pm - info here
Night of Sport is a yearly event organised by the National Youth Service and the Ministry of Sport. There are over a dozen participating communes, where visitors can attend sporting activities (and the list is varied; ever heard of Tegball?) The title is not exactly correct, though, as most events kick off around lunchtime and end before 9pm. Check out the full programme here.
Is there an event you think we'd enjoy and like to share with our audience? Feel free to let us know through email@example.com and we may consider it for next week's agenda.
