11:10 22 February 2013
Looking for ways to keep your family busy this weekend? Here are just some of the great events going on in our county.
If you are looking for something to take you out of this world, then Cloud Atlas (12A) will do just that. Adapted from the book of the same name, Cloud Atlas leaps between several time frames in its multi-layered narrative. Various plots are set up, including a crusading journalist, drawn into a deadly mystery. A musician heading to Edinburgh to work along side a famous composer. And a genetically engineered fast food worker who escapes servitude and goes on the run. With a cast of amazing actors such as Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Halle Berry, the story takes some patience to get into, with all the plots gradually knitting together.

Ruarri is touring with his new album, Brother, released March 25 bringing his own style of music to Norwich. Born in Edinburgh, but raised in New Zealand, Ruarri has released 4 albums, with two through his own label, Pip Productions. Doors open at 7:30pm, with tickets costing £8.
