If you have not got anything planned this weekend then have a look at some of the great events going on this weekend.

Its the film all Star Trek fans have been waiting for. Star Trek Into Darkness (12A) is the action packed sequel to JJ Abram's 2009 hit. Starfleet is rocked by terrorist John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) when he makes his intentions known by one of Starfleet offices in London, and then attempts to destroy everyone the enterprise crew holds dear. Kirk (Chris Pine) is tasked with chasing down Harrison and bringing him to justice, all with the help of crew from the first film, including Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Saldana), and Scott (Pegg). As with the first film the effects are visually spectacular, with dearedevil chases that put the main characters in peril.

As part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, jazz band Soul Rebels will be performing at the Theatre Royal this Sunday at 8pm.
