We start in Cross Flatts Park, Beeston where the Bridge Café will be holding another table top sale on Saturday 9am-12pm in and around the Watsonian Pavilion. The LS11 School Uniform Swap Shop will also be there from 11am-1pm.

Slung Low present three shows this week at The Holbeck. On Saturday at 7:30pm you can see Jeremiah – a raucous rebellious gig theatre show about an eighteenth century rising to topple the government and end poverty forever. Then on Sunday at 3pm it’s the Honeybirds’ tenth anniversary celebration. There will be vintage harmonies, lipstick and cake. Finally, on Thurdsay at 7:30pm it’s Potatohead – one-potato-show involving puppetry, stand-up comedy, physical theatre, film, singing, dancing and plenty of potatoes. All the shows are pay what you feel, but you need to book in advance at www.slunglow.org/shows
