StonyBreakdown!2 will be hosted at York House Centre this Friday evening.

This second celebration of American Old-Timey and Bluegrass music will cram in tunes from five live bands and the bar will be well stocked with lots of real ale and cider.

Slurp your way through the good time event while showing off your footwork to those musical types getting their skiffle on: Mungo Jungo JugBand, Foxchase Bluegrass, Concrete Cowboys, Valerie Vale & Her Aylesbury Aylevators and Band of Brothers.

Tickets are a fiver, and you get them from Well Past It, in Timor Court in the town.

> Now, if you are reading this section having just got in from work, you are probably feeling a little frazzled, fed up and ready for a night in front of the box, possibly accompanied by a glass of something chilled.

But you need to shake off the shackles of work, and live a little (and yes, we do know what a struggle that can be!).

Nonetheless, this evening is a cracking opportunity to enjoy yourselves with a barn dance ready to roll at Bradwell Abbey’s Cruck Barn.

The folky-fun is a fundraising event by, and for, MacIntyre, and absolutely all ages are welcome, although under 18s will need to be accompanied.

Tickets are £12.50 which includes food. The dance will take place from 7.30pm through to 11.30pm.

Dig out that cowboy hat, and get moving.

> The Unity Ball Dinner and Dance is being held on Saturday evening, to raise funds for Willen Hospice.

The Hilton Hotel in Kents Hill is the chosen venue, and a live performance by the Kakatietie music group will supplement entertainment by Slimbuster & Sydney.

Dress code is strictly black tie or formal for the evening, which is being held as an award night for locally-based Afro Carribean shops.
