1. Deal or no deal

A week really is a long time in politics, but we’re at deadline day and it looks like it’s no deal for the parties at Stormont. Barring any last minute miracle, the focus will turn to the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, this afternoon to see what move he will make to either extend the time for a deal or move to another election.

2. So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

While our own local deadlines may come and go, Theresa May has set her Article 50 deadline for Wednesday, when Britain will officially notify the EU on its intention to leave. Not that we’re any further forward on the detail of Brexit and what it will mean for trade, the NI border and travel rights.

3. Marathon Man

Our own Brendan Mulgrew is lacing up for London, and will undertake the marathon on April 23rd. Brendan is raising much needed funds in support of Children's Heartbeat Trust who do such important work for families of children with congenital heart disease. You can support his efforts here.

4. Still sailing

Titanic Belfast has become an important part of life in Belfast, not just for tourists, as it is the go to place for events and gala dinners, as well as being an iconic addition to the City skyline. While it is firmly established it’s hard to believe it’s only five years old, and to celebrate this they are holding a weekend of very special events.

5. Funny man

Since he made his TV debut on the many comedy panel shows, Russell Howard always stood out from the crowd, so it was no shock that he eventually got his own show, Russell Howard’s Good News. The success of that and his charming, sunny disposition, meant that an arena tour was always on they career path. Tomorrow night he’ll have them laughing in the aisles at the SSE Arena.

6. He’ll say anything

17 years and only getting better, the Belfast Film Festival kicks off this week, with many weird and wonderful films from across the globe, including premieres, Director Q&A, musical performance and a very, very, very special guest in the form of John Cusack. Everyone will have a favourite John Cusack film, whether it’s the 80s classic Say Anything, hitman film Grosse Point Blank, the bizarre Being John Malkovich.

7. Fool me once

Next Saturday you wake up a little groggy, still recovering from the stresses of the working week. You’ll pour yourself a cup of coffee, check the news and think "That’s a bit strange. I wonder if it is fake news?” You may even send a text message to a friend pointing out the weird thing you have found. And when they laugh at you and you check the date you’ll be very embarrassed at your mistake.
