SFTW: What's to do?

Hall together now

This Sunday, there's a five hour round trip on the cards, exploring the established properties of those who have made a significant cultural impact on the Pool of Life. Sadly, the honourable Doctor Duncan's pad doesn't seem to feature in the tour. Or even the pub.

It's all about parks see, you know, in the year of the environment and all that. So it's sorted for all to meet, 10am at the Coach House Archway in Calderstones Park, where you might actually go on the tour, however, remains unclear, it seems the tour guides are retaining an element of mystery. Best take a packed lunch though because they're promising to make a day of it.

A number of halls and estates, parks and green spaces will be explored. The Holt family's Sudley House and Lord and Lady Sefton's Croxteth Hall are among our best bets to feature.

Halls of Fame @ Various Liverpool Parks, meeting at Coach House Archway, Calderstones Park, 10am, free, for more information, call 0151 233 3007

LUST for life

Do you want to have fun? Hows about a few laughs? Liverpool University Student Theatre (L.U.S.T) can show you a good time this weekend as they present Sweet Charity, the musical story of Charity Hope Valentine, aka the poor al' girl too often mistreated in her desperate quest for love.

L.U.S.T aim to put on two full length shows per year, a time scale not bad for lazy students working in their spare time. And to say very few of them have had any sort of formal training and tickets will never set you back much more than a fiver, the shows are of a good quality.

This production of Sweet Charity, based on Federico Fellini's original and oh so glamorous screenplay, expect big hair, little outfits, plenty of sequins and cigarettes to feature in amongst the 'Big Spender' and 'Rhythm of Life' outbursts.

Sweet Charity @ the Stanley Theatre, Liverpool Guild of Students, until Sat 28th March, 7.30pm, tickets £6.50 adults, £4.50 students, available on the door

Painting pictures

Jonathan Raynmond Drabkin has painted all over the world wide for more than 30 years and he's even worked for the French Ministry of Culture.

You'd think his sketches would speak for themselves, wouldn't you? But, no. The presentation claims to explore 'the broader sense of the word art,' naturally. The diverse range of subjects and materials 'stimulate the visual cortex' and promise to be 'socially and esoterically' pleasing. Do me a favour.

The Unity can be forgiven for these dodgy descriptions mind, as they often present nifty little art exhibitions in their pleasant display spaces around the theatre. With no admission charge, if you're up that end of town, you can't really lose.

Jonathan Raynmond Drabkin @ the Unity Theatre, until Sun 29 th March, free, for more information call 0151 709 6052

Yousef's back

Having lay low for a while now, Yousef returns once more with a slamming Circus line-up for this Saturday night's do at the Barfly. He's promoted himself to headliner and has promised a three hour set upstairs in the theatre.

This will no doubt please hundreds of 'Sefmeister/Circus faithful but impartial clubbers need not worry, there are plenty more names on offer, too.

Lewis Boardman, the 'Pool boy whose 1999 Ibiza holiday transformed him from indie-rocking punklet to house-spinning megastar (ish) will also be taking to the decks in the theatre.

Whilst downstairs, former Cream anorak Alex Wolfenden, self-proclaimed crowd-frenzier Scott Lewis and acid jacking houser Stel Alexander look set to spice things up no end in the bar.

Circus @ Barfly, Sat 28 th March, 10pm, tickets £7, available at 3 Beat Records, 0151 709 3355
