It’s a shame that Budgens have removed their noticeboard, but there are still plenty of events on the others, so here’s our selection for the month ahead. Take your pick: a trip to the BBC Gardener’s World and Good Food Show, a Big Band Night, a Banovallum Brass Concert, organ music at St. Peter’s or a good old car boot sale. Up to you!

This month’s visiting organist at Music for Woodhall will be Ryan Edwards. “Ryan’s continued popularity on the circuit could be a result of his fresh approach to organ playing which is reflected in the variety of styles of music in his concert programme. He understands the need to awaken new interest in the organ especially in his generation by appealing to both traditional and modern tastes.” He will be on stage at St Peter’s Church Hall, Woodhall Spa, 7.30pm.
