Clues To What's On This Weekend

There are no local music festivals this weekend but still no lack of entertainment with Sherlock Holmes & The Hound of the Baskervilles taking to the stage at Gawsworth. So you can join Holmes and Dr Watson as they search for clues concerning the death of Sir Charles Baskerville and the possibility of a fearsome beast roaming Dartmoor. Ticket prices for Friday 14 August are £17 (adult) £14 (child) and for Saturday 15 are £19.50 (adult) £16.00 (child).
For tickets please telephone the box office as listed below. Ticket orders will be held at the Gate for collection. (Picture courtesy of

Another month must have gone by because it’s the Farmers Market at Cloverbank again this Saturday (8.30 am to 12.30 pm). It’s worth going for the piglets alone – with the weather they are in mud-bath bliss. There are eight, 6-week old youngsters and two Kune Kune sows with nine very young ones between them. Lindsay Moores makes her debut as a stall holder too with her business, Adam’s Very Clever, providing healthy food for busy people – a healthy chunky vegetable ready meal in a pot – and there will be free samples to try on the day.

Finally, fair weather or foul a good film is always a weekend favourite and where better than the very charming Cinemac:
Showing on Friday, Aliens in the Attic (PG) 3 and 5.30pm and at 8pm, The Taking of Pelham 123. This is a change from the scheduled showing of Moon, cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
And, on Saturday and Sunday: Aliens in the Attic (PG) 3 and 5.30pm and at 8pm the Special Advance Screening of: Inglourious Basterds (18)
