The Grove Inn in Holbeck is holding a two day reopening celebration party on Saturday and Sunday from 2:30pm. They’ve moved the bands inside because of the weather, but there’s still plenty of live music to be enjoyed. The party is also a fundraiser for St Gemma’s Hospice.

Slung Low present two shows this week: ‘you have already survived’ by Gobscure on Saturday at 7:30pm is ‘a truly remarkable work that forges a deep connection with those who experience it, with art that always brings love, hope and thoughtfulness.’ Then on Friday at 7:30pm join Charles and Di for a musical cruise through the cultural commonwealth of the eighties as they revisit that time when life was tough but the music was brave, as Charles and Diana: The Reunion Tour reaches Holbeck. Both shows are pay-what-you-decide. Book your free ticket at www.slunglow.org/shows and once you’ve seen the show decide how much you want to pay.
