Something for the weekend

The loop is so excited. Jazz, yes live JAZZ in a jazz starved town.The Steve Darlington Quartet are playing at the newly run and revamped Jolly Sailor on Sunderland St. Lets hope its the first of a regular slot for them in this really inviting pub.

Leek festival is in full swing. So to help you limber up for next months Barnaby festival in Macc why not pop along and have a look?

The loop will be heading to the annual Sculpture Trail at One House Nursery over the weekend, to enjoy work by twenty odd sculptors displayed in 7 acres of woodland meadows with glorious far reaching views. Tea and cake too.

Workshops for a samba drum band commence on Sunday. Drums are provided and there is a bar so the whole thing has a social feel to it as well as getting down to some serious samba.

As ever we will be heading to Cloverbank Farmers market to stockpile serious foodie stuff but also hope to have a go with Di Stone who has a stall for her handmade felt and is running a workshop on Introduction to Felting – this is free.
The NCO play the Heritage Centre on Saturday night with Martin Roscoe playing Beethoven and there is an Irish Jam Session at The |Hollins on Friday night.
