Wear some tartan as Bodger’s Mate celebrate Burn’s Night at the Noels on Sunday with guest accordionist Hugh Barwell, from London.

The Church Fitters (Twyford Village Hall, Sunday) are a folk band like no other.

A bass guitar made out of a frying pan, heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw, and foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki, and traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.
