The weekend is fast approaching and for those still deciding how to spend their Friday through to Sunday, we pick 5 of the best ways to spend your weekend in Somerset

1. Back to Bacharach, Octagon Theatre in Yeovil

Back to Bacharach comes to Yeovil’s Octagon Theatre on Sunday April 22 to celebrate the magical music of Burt Bacharach, one of the most accomplished popular composers of the 20th century. Book tickets here.

2. The Nile Hilton Incident at the Curzon Cinema, Clevedon

The pick of a packed programme at the Curzon in Clevedon is The Nile Hilton Incident showing at 7.30pm on Sunday April 22. This Swedish political thriller from 2017 is based on a true story that takes us onto the streets of Cairo leading up to the 2011 revolution. Tarik Saleh’s crime drama revolves around a policeman investigating the murder of a beautiful singer and is a paranoid portrait of an individual and systematic corruption that leaves none of its characters unscarred. Book tickets here.

3. Dawn Chorus Walk, Bath skyline

From 5am on Sunday April 22, local naturalist David Goode will walk you through Prior Park garden at first light, through old wild flower pastures and up into Rainbow Woods, listening to the rising dawn chorus. The event includes breakfast. Booking is essential – call 0344 249 1895.

4. Chandos Society of Artists Spring Exhibition

The Bridgwater-based organisation is hosting a month-long exhibition of its members’ work at Bridgwater Arts Centre (April 3 – 27).

5. Come & Sing Handel’s Messiah, Tyndale Baptist Church in Bristol

Bristol Choral Society hosts a workshop of Messiah choruses at Tyndale Baptist Church, Bristol on Saturday April 21, for those familiar with the work, under the direction of Hilary Campbell, renowned for her interpretation of major choral works. To book, download and complete the booking form here.
