The Noels Arms’s legendary comedy night returns on Thursday, and just in time for Comic Relief!

Melton comedian Jon Pearson will host the evening and brings along some of his funny friends, Jay Handley, Chris Norton-Walker, Patrick Draper and Hannah Silvester.

Entry is free, but bucket donations will be welcomed.

Jonas (Noels Arms, Friday) are a duo with a difference.

Creatively-styled drums and acoustic guitar played by great friends Darren and Warren who you might know better as two-thirds of Maximum Jam. So expect a bit of Weller as well as The Beatles, The Chillies and even the 4 Tops.

Friday’s Generous Briton entertainment is provided by Loughborough lads Player II, an acoustic duo featuring singer Dave Rogers and guitarist Andy Gurski, of Indio Black fame.

Tara Simms returns to Melton on Saturday, but a little louder this time as she brings her one woman, full band sound to The Grapes.

She’ll be playing a wide mix of rock and pop classics throughout the night, guaranteed to have everyone singing along.

Roadrunner are celebrating 30 years on the road and will be appearing at The Generous Briton on Saturday.

Playing a great mixture of classic covers spanning 60 years of pop, rock, soul and disco featuring Steve Johnson, arguably the best slide and lead guitarist in Leicestershire.

The Moonlights (Noels Arms, Saturday) consist of David Wyatt, Carl Dawson, Simon Gilroy, Tony Robinson and Gavin Hall, a line-up that runs like a who’s who of Leicester’s musical delight.

The Moonlights are guaranteed to reach the parts that other bands never reach.
