Diego’s documentary, Rocky Horror’s fishnets and Lloyd Webber’s cello chat are weekend choices for CHARLES HUTCHINSON

Last chance in York to see... well, on this tour anyway

The Rocky Horror Show, Grand Opera House, York, today and Saturday, 5.30pm and 8.30pm

FISHNETS at the ready as the one with the “Sweet Transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania” delights in corrupting the innocent once more.

Richard O’Brien’s cult rock’n’roll sci-fi musical catapults squeaky clean college couple Brad (James Darch) and fiancée Janet (Joanne Clifton) into sexual awakenings extremis by Dr Frank N Furter (the fabulous Stephen Webb).

Let’s all do the pelvic-thrusting Time Warp... again.

Film of the weekend

Diego Maradona, City Screen, York, showing from today

MADE by the director of the award-winning Senna and Amy documentaries, Asif Kapadia’s film uses more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Argentinean football icon Diego Maradona’s personal archive.

Kapadia charts “the wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption”.

At the heart of the documentary is Maradona's time in Italy, when he led Napoli to their first-ever title. In the sprawling chaos of Naples, where the Devil would have needed bodyguards, Maradona became bigger than God himself, but there was a price. He could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city.

The film carries this warning: “Contains infrequent strong language, nudity, bloody detail and drug references”. How very Maradona.

More than a concert

An Evening With Julian Lloyd Webber, Wesley Centre, Malton, Saturday, 7pm

IN a fundraiser for the £1 million appeal for the conversion of Malton's Methodist chapel into the re-branded Wesley Centre, Julian Lloyd Webber will talk about his career and give an impromptu masterclass to two young Ryedale cellists.

Expect works by Bach, Faure, Saint Saens and Rachmaninov, alongside pieces by Julian’s brother Andrew and his father William. "It will be a fun evening," he says. "There'll be a Q&A session where people are free to ask me anything they want – well yes, pretty much anything!"
