Heather Smith's weekend whirl

Pedal it Pink
Triple World cycling champ Victoria Pendleton will be in Sefton Park with her mum this Sunday to kick start the brand new biking event for the Breast Cancer Campaign which debuts in Liverpool.

Pedal it Pink has already seen 700 women sign up to cycle either a marathon, half marathon or 5k family lap of the park in which partners and children can take part. The Breast Cancer Campaign works toward better treatment, prevention, hoping one day to come up with an absolute cure for the disease.

Whether you want to take your bike down to Sefton Park on Sunday and sign up for a race, or take only yourself along and sign over your support, be sure to get involved with the first Pedal it Pink event, which will surely grow in the coming years. Events will begin at 12pm.

Pedal it Pink @ Sefton Park, Sun 19th April, 12pm. For more information, visit breastcancercampaign.org

All the best Belgians are...
Melodramatic pop quartet Deadbelgian play the songs of recording legend Jacques Brel and you can watch them this Friday at Static Gallery this Friday.

Support for Jacques Brel, who has sold an estimated 25 million records worldwide, has often been scarce in Britain despite Leonard Cohen and David Bowie outwardly celebrating his tunes. But this Liverpool-based band, comprising many ex Wizards of Twiddly, are keen to spread the joy.

For just £3 on the door, you are certain to get your moneys worth in instruments alone. Never mind your standard guitar, drum and vocal, between them, Deadbelgian play piano, ukulele, trombone, flute, mandolin and saxophone in their average set.

Pop along and see what the rest of the world have long been raving about.

*Deadbelgian play Jacques Brel @ Static Gallery, Roscoe Lane, Fri 17th April, 9pm, tickets £3 on the door,

The first WAG
Cut down on clothes shopping recently? You shouldn't have. By joining the spend, spend, spend club this recession you could well become the focus of a future fashion exhibition.

Coming from a family of wealthy sugar merchants, Dr Philip Frederic Tinne married Emily Margaret McCulloch in 1910, comfortable in the knowledge that his Sandbach, Tinne & Co. inheritance would cover his wife's WAG-like shopping habits.

Day, evening, outdoor clothes and accessories feature in the high-quality wardrobe which was built around the Great Depression and two world wars. Dancing clothes made for her six children also feature.

Emily Tinne first had her sizeable wardrobe displayed during the Walker Art Gallery's Passion for Fashion in 2006. But the recent emergence of many family letters has prompted the arrival of this new exhibition at Sudley House which further details the life of Emily's family as well as her finest silks.

*A Sweet Life: Fashion in a Liverpool Sugar Merchant’s Family @ Sudley House until Spring 2010, open daily 10am-5pm, free, for more information call 0151 724 3245

Annie Mac in town
It's a big one down at Barfly for Chibuku Shake Shake on Saturday night. Not only is Radio 1s highly sought after, simmering track spinner Annie Mac presenting and playing in the theatre herself, but she also brings along man of the dance music moment, A Track, who recently supported Kanye West on his mammoth Glow in the Dark tour. There's loads more of DJ action away from the stage too.

Korova, drinks license back in place, will be hosting the official after party, so if at 3am you find yourself still full of dancing beans, you know where to head.

*Chibuku @ Barfly, Sat 18th April, doors 10pm-3am, tickets £15, £12 NUS, available on the door or in advance from 3Beat Records
