l Tonight (Thursday) at The Barge the jam session is with the Psychoslinkys, then on Friday evening Counterfeit Blondie will be performing.

On Saturday night the International Party Doctors are in town, followed on Sunday by Neil Wilde’s Boogie Band.

l At Jeremy’s this Friday night Funki Five will be entertaining. The five-piece band will be playing everybody’s favourite soul, funk and Motown songs.

On Saturday evening, Carly and The Kicks will be on stage - another very popular local band playing songs from the 60s and 70s.

Then on Sunday afternoon from 4pm acoustic duo Hannah Rei and Sebastian will be performing.

l The Wyke Lion, at “Hellfire Crossroads” just above Bailiff Bridge, has a new menu for spring.

Don’t worry - it has kept some of the classic favourite dishes but has also brought some seasonal dishes to the menu such as pan-fried rolled belly of pork with an apple, pistachio and apricot stuffing, served with lemon-scented crushed baby potatoes, Bury black pudding, seasonal vegetables and a piquant sauce.

Plus fillet of sea bass on lemon-scented crushed baby potatoes, with Mediterranean vegetables, tender-stem broccoli, tomato and olive sauce.

There are salads, steaks, burgers and sharing platters - enough choice to satisfy the hungriest long-distance walkers, the most demanding business lunchers, and the most devoted date night couples.

Not everyone wants a big meal.

The new menu takes care of that as there are lighter versions of the main menu favourites available, plus spicy finger foods and sandwiches.

l Don’t forget that this Friday night Brighouse Sports and Social Club, on Russell Way, off Bradford Road, is hosting a social night with all welcome. It will feature Never Too Late, a five-piece harmony group from Bradford singing hits from the 60s and 70s.

The event is open to non-members and kicks off at 7.30pm with bingo and a pop quiz. Tickets are still available from behind the bar at £6 each and £3 for children.

l From 5pm on Sunday the Millers Bar is having an acoustic session to support local up-and-coming acts. All are welcome.
