Although funnyman Chris Ramsey and folk fiends Gigspanner are both at The Stables this evening, tickets are all sold-out, so you’ll not be going if you aren’t already sorted.

How about turning out tomorrow for a tribute to Slow Hands himself, though?

Classic Clapton will deliver a two-hour journey through Eric’s many slabs of the sensational: From Wonderful Tonight and I Shot The Sheriff to Tears in Heaven and a small-known number called Layla.

Mike Hall is the man filling the big shoes, and playing the big tunes.

On Saturday the venue presents a true rock n roll pioneer, according to the brochure, and they aren’t exaggerating any – we are talking Marty Wilde here.

Kim’s dad will be helped by his clawing band of Wildcats at the musical party.

While marvellous Marty gets to work on the main stage, on Stage 2 Janey Bombshell promises ‘a kaleidoscope of power packed excitement’ when she cuts loose her 1970s inspired original music for you, everything from Abba-esque pop to beautiful balladry’, from 8.45pm.

On Sunday afternoon, Artur Pizarro plays Rachmaninov from 3pm - the first of six concerts that will see the internationally renowned pianist perform Rachmaninov’s complete works for piano.

In the evening, Keith Ball & Kenny’s Jazzmen will deliver the music that made Kenny an endearing success for so many years.

Kenny passed away last March, but his son Keith wanted the band to stay together, and to continue his father’s legacy he has stepped in as band leader and vocalist.

There’s nowt in the diary for Monday, but Horse gallops in on Tuesday evening.

The Scottish singer-songwriter has supported artists including Tina Turner, BB King and Burt Bacharach.

She knows how to deliver the goods and with nine albums in the racks, there are plenty of goods to deliver.

The Reflections comprises recent year members of bands The Moody Blues, The Hollies, The Manfreds, and current lead singer of 10cc Mick Wilson, and they will play the songs from their respective groups on Wednesday evening.

If you go expecting to hear songs including Nights in White Satin, We Don’t Talk Any More, Forever Autumn and Do Wah Diddy, you’ll return home happy.

Stage 2’s performance by Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman is a long time sold-out,so you’ll not be able to sneak into that one, but tickets for everything else can be booked by calling the usual number: MK 280800.
