Pictured: Community Apple Pressing comes to Crouch Gardens in Seaford on Saturday. All part of a fruity and fun weekend with something to offer for all tastes.  

Friday's rolled around once again, and with it comes another great Haven weekend, brimming with a host of exciting events to get you out and about in Newhaven and Seaford. Along with the usual line-up of live local music, two theatre shows continue into the weekend, as well as a number of activities the whole family can get involved in. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and support your local events!

Why not kick-start your weekend tonight with one of two live music offerings. Seaford Folk Club once again opens its doors from 8pm at the Royal British Legion in Seaford, with traditional Irish songs and story-telling from Kathleen O'Sullivan and Billy Teare. Meanwhile, up on the hill at South Heighton, Brass Monkey play the Hampden Arms from 8.30pm.

Keeping things live, but with a touch more drama, Mad Music Hall continues its run at Meeching Hall in Newhaven from 7.30pm, whilst over at The Barn Theatre in Seaford, That Super Duper Seventies Show promises "Songs and silliness through the 1970s", also from 7.30pm. Both on until Saturday.

Saturday morning brings with it two fantastic family events. From 10am, The Ship in Newhaven hosts a Charity Family Fun Day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, including face painting, treasure hunt, raffle and performance from local band Tasteless in the evening. Alternatively, get over to Seaford Crouch Gardens from 11am and join in the Seaford Family Focus Group-Community Apple Pressing. It's free and includes live music and apple related activities for all ages. Hooray!

As we move into Saturday evening, there's yet more live music on offer. With Kangaroo Juice at the Royal British Legion, Chris Marx at the Constitutional Club and Random at The Boot, Seaford really has spoilt you for choice.

Once again, Sunday is a more relaxed affair, beginning at 10am with the Royal British Legion County Poppy Walk from Newhaven Fort to Seaford Martello Tower. Kevin Gordon will also lead another Historic Tour around St Leonard's Church in Seaford from 2pm.

On top of all of this, the weather's not looking too bad for the weekend either...fingers crossed!
