Both Our Future Beeston and the School Uniform Swap Shop will be at Watsonian Pavilion in Cross Flatts Park on Saturday lunchtime from 11am-1pm. Why not drop off some pre-loved uniform and pick up some energy saving advice over a cuppa?

Slung Low present ‘Jane Hair – The Bontes Restyled’ on Saturday at 7:30pm. Buglight Theatre set the action in a hair salon “The action unfolds over one explosive evening as the writers of Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre (and those other books you’ve not read either), find themselves on the cusp of huge success. But is the world ready for them as they really are – three warring siblings from Keighley?” Book at slunglow.org/shows
