What’s on: this weekend

Fri 9 – Sun 11 June

The Zoots, Norden Farm Maidenhead, Fri 9 June
You’ve got to love a party band. Playing all the hits, you dance until your feet are screaming for mercy. The Zoots are that band and these Wiltshire peeps are playing The Sounds Of The Sixties at Norden Farm this Friday 9 June – and there’s just 20 tickets left. Squeeze into your mini, slap on the eyeliner and check them out. They’re so friggin’ busy these days. this is the first time they’ve played in Maidenhead for 5 years. Tickets £15.
Whiteknights Studio Trail, Reading, Sat 10 – Sun 11 June
If you’ve every wondered what arty types do all day, here’s your chance to find out. Thirty-seven artists, designers and makers of the Whiteknights area of Reading will fling open their doors for you to browse, chat and if you’re lucky you might even get spot of lunch. And it’s totally freeeee.
Paddle board Taster, Dinton Pastures Country Park, Sat 10 June
I totally look like this when I’m paddle boarding. Who am I kidding, I have a hate hate relationship with water sports (due to a  lack of ability). But I’m thinking a taster sesh at Dinton Pastures could get me back in the game and looking as hot as Rihanna. Apparently the instructors are really enthusiastic. They’ll need a miracle to teach me.

 

NT Live: Peter Pan, Norden Farm Maidenhead, Sat 10 June

This recorded performance captured live from the National Theatre tells the modern-day version of JM Barrie’s classic Peter Pan about the boy who never grew up (*ahem, sounds like Mr Muddy) It’s a show that both adults and kids will love. Tickets £15, suitable for children aged 7+.

Pam Ann, Hexagon Reading, Fri 9 June 

The A-List queen of the skies, lands her Louboutin’s on international turf and will hit the tarmac running, with her 20th anniversary UK tour. Pam Ann has developed cult-status with her masterful portrayal of a brash hot mess of an Australian airhostess. As the airports got bigger, so has her ego… and her mouth filthier. Enjoy the most politically incorrect flight path, with Pam’s blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. Tickets: 1st class £29; Business £26; Economy £23.

Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show For Kids, Hexagon Reading, Sat 10 June

Mutton chops, waistcoats and a cabin set the scene for Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show For Kids. What’s with the long title, guys? With lots of Victorian style comic banter, the time-travelling duo perform a boxful of bafflement and impossibility. The magic is mysterious with brain-bursting illusions with a heavy helping of tom-foolery. A heavy dose of silly sounds good to me. New time (11.30am) added. Tickets £12.

It’s an interactive theatrical adventure in which Tilly the Tortoise and Hatty the Hare go head to head on sports day. Expect music, games and joining the egg and spoon race.
