What's on this weekend?

The Silver Donkey is on this Sunday at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
A musical tale of bravery, war and love. In a village by the sea, each day is just the same…until two little girls discover a wounded soldier in the forest near their home in France. The soldier carries a precious object in his pocket; a tiny silver donkey, his lucky charm and a symbol of the courage, loyalty and hope that will carry them all through the First World War.
