Adrenalin junkies
Manchester Arena, Manchester

An ‘action sports collective’ headed up by motorsport legend Travis Pastrana, Nitro Circus are bringing their latest spectacular to the UK. The show features a host of BMX, motocross and skating stars tackling outrageous stunts, such as the 50ft-high ‘Gigant-A-Ramp’, with a big dollop of humour.

Frankie Boyle

The notorious Scottish comedian and former regular on TV’s Mock The Week brings his new show, Hurt Like You’ve Never Been Loved, to London’s Eventim Apollo for two nights. Not for the faint of heart.

Reel legends
Dublin, Ireland

Since its debut in 2003, the Dublin International Film Festival has screened more than 1,500 films – many of them world premieres – and welcomed more than 500 “major guests”. It’s a fair description, given that last year alone they included Al Pacino and Russell Crowe.

Uphill battle
Glyncorrwg, West Glamorgan

Enduro is going from strength to strength, engaging mountain bikers and spectators with its fascinating mix of rough-and-ready timed downhill trails and gruelling uphill transfer stages. The Welsh Gravity Enduro Mash Up, set in the moody Afan Forest, tweaks the format to allow for multiple attempts at the race stages, offering even more gnarly action.

Bringing the beats back
Glasgow, Scotland

Rudimental’s single Bloodstream, featuring Ed Sheeran, sold 600,000 copies in the UK alone. Their second album, We The Generation, repeated the success of its predecessor, going to number one. It’s fair to say 2015 was a successful year for the London drum and bass/pop foursome. Now they’re celebrating by taking their hits on the road in the UK, kicking off in Glasgow.
