THE Watermill Theatre, Newbury will be bringing its touring production of "Love on the Tracks" to the Rose Theatre at St Mary's School, Ascot on Tuesday.

MELODIES + Memories is a new night at Milk Bar, Reading, run by DJ Ralph Solly. On the last Sunday of the month, invited promoters, DJ's, musicians and other special guests are invited to play their most influential record or first vinyl album. The rules are strict. No talking, no calls, no texting, no Facebook, no Twitter. The idea is to listen to every song on the album and absorb the music. Ralph says that his aim is to "Keep vinyl alive".

Tickets for the gig cost £9 in advance and £11 on the door. Visit www.arlingtonarts.co.uk or call 01635 244246 to book.
