Something for the weekend?
The new loop is looming and you should get one delivered to your inbox next week.So let us have your e mail address if you haven't already.
In the meantime there's plenty to entertain you this weekend.
There is an auction view at North Rode for Adam Partridge flog It, if antiques are your thing. Personally we are always open to a rummage in a box of random items.
Thursday sees the start of the Heritage Open days. There are some intriguing happenings tied in with this, this weekend so look at http://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/directory/HOD009394E/.5 for times and events.
The beautiful King Edward St Chapel will be open on Friday and Saturday with posy making workshops 11-2 for children on Saturday. We love the idea of the Angry Preacher on Saturday, a tour of Macc's non conformist chapels, exploring this fascinating strand of the town's history with a curious 'Revd Stephen Macall'
Pugin's St Alban's Church will be open ( with those lovely medeival carvings) as will Christ Church. If you don't 'do' ecclesiatical 'The Pubs and Breweries of Old Macc' on Sunday might be more your thing. For inspiration why not get hold of the new town trail booklet written by local historian Dorothy Bentley Smith. £2.
The other must do this weeknd is to throw yourself into the Cheshire Open Studios.Now in its 12th year this is a unique chance to view artists work (and maybe purchase directly )and to talk with them in their own studios spaces.Go to www.cheshireopenstudios.org.uk for a full list with maps of the artists taking part.
Loop readers are invited to view the work of Julie Hamer and Sara Belfield in particular. See invite below.
The Martyn Donaldson Music Trust concert is on Saturday at the Methodist Church (see post before) or alternatively catch VooDoo Souls at the Swan with Two |Necks. Sunday has the coyly named Unshaggables playing at Ronnies. Its a good weather forecast for once and loads of things to do outside, so get out and play.
