2. RELIVE the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra in Sinatra with the ’62 Sextet at Norden Farm on Saturday at 8pm. Paul Holgate slips on Sinatra’s classic Fedora and steps into his polished shoes as he brings Ol’ Blue Eyes back to the stage. As a long term fan, and bearing more than a passing resemblance to the man himself, Paul has been performing as Sinatra for a decade. He has taken his act across the world, performing in the UK, Europe and Dubai. He is joined by the ’62 Sextet, featuring six of London’s finest jazz musicians. Maidenhead resident and success story Toby Cruse will be behind the piano. Tickets are £15 from 01628 788997 or go to www.nordenfarm.org.
3. THE Chesham Bois Catholic Players bring its family pantomime, Sing a Song of Sixpence to The Elgiva tonight at 8pm, tomorrow and Sunday at 1.30 and 5.30pm. The show, based on the story of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds Baked in a Pie features all the knock about fun you've come to expect with audience participation throughout. When the King’s magic crown is stolen, his kingdom is reduced to destitution, and it looks as if evil has conquered good. But handsome Prince Valentine is finally triumphant. Tickets are £12 (£8 concessions) from www.elgiva.com or call 01494 582900.
4. SEE the lively and thought provoking images by the Wycombe Homeless Connection which has now moved to High Wycombe Library. All this month, visitors to the library can see some of the powerful and sometimes moving photographs, drawings and computer aided images which were created over the five years of the Art at the Shelter project. There are also personal stories of some of the homeless people who participated in the project. The exhibition, organised by Wycombe Museum, is a celebration of local people and what has been achieved by them in the face of adversity. High Wycombe Library is open every day except Mondays. This exhibition will be the first one in a new space at the library, on the first floor, and is free.
5. SEE what produce is available at the Princes Risborough country and craft market on Sunday between 10am and 2pm in the High Street. There are a range of stalls selling produce from the area.
