Blimey, theres more. Gig wise, tonight there is Cactus Moon at the Hollins, Black Road, Macc: blues/rock for the afficianado. Free entry. Also at the Old Kings Head, Byrons lane, Gurnett, where the delicately named Unshaggables appear on Saturday night, also free entry. Music of a more formal nature can be heard in Macc Town Square tomorrow evening (Sat) with the traditional Beating the Retreat: An Age-Old Tradition of the British Army, performed by The Band of the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment at 6.30pm.
If you want to try your hand at something creative this weekend Claire de Ruiter is running a felt workshop.
Learn how to design and make a stylish felt bag and use felted flowers to enhance it. Just perfect for that summer wedding! More from her later in a wonderful exhibition during the textile festival (see their link).
Its the 3rd Saturday of the month so if you want to eat exceptional food get along to the Cloverbank farmers Market on Saturday morning and stock up on some delicious local treats.The weather should be good so take the kids up to the beautiful Goyt Valley for an Insect day with the Park Rangers, look at wildlife and take part in a mini beast hunt!
