*HOT Fingers presents an eclectic mix of tunes from the 1920s, 30s and 40s with their new show touring to Broadoak near Bridport tomorrow (2) and Cerne Abbas near Dorchester on Sunday (3).

Artsreach favourites Hot Fingers, led by the inimitable ‘Spats’ Langham, will perform their brand new show, The Banned Played On. They will present an eclectic mix of tunes from the 1920s, 30s and 40s which were deemed unsuitable for the public by the various authorities and governments of the time. Go to artsreach.co.uk for tickets.

*DANCE school Let's Dance is putting on a show at Weymouth Pavilion tomorrow (2) at 7.30pm.

The show will feature around 300 performers of all ages showcasing their talents in dance and song. With a wide variety of music and colourful sparkling costumes, it will be a great evening for all. Children under two go free but child tickets must still be obtained from the box office.

*LOOKING ahead to mid-week, one half of one of the finest folk bands in the country will play Weymouth Pavilion on Wednesday (6).

Phil Beer is set to play Dorchester Corn Exchange from 8pm.

Phil is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene and is equally as in demand for his solo shows. String Theory sets out to share some of Phil’s most-loved songs. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more. Call Dorchester Arts for tickets.
