The weather is on the turn and we are in for a coooool weekend according to the forecasters. So let's keep warm by getting out there and supporting all the music and artistic delights in store for us in the Haven.

It's Halloween, so get on your mask and your pumpkin head and hit the streets tonight, starting off with Halloween Fancy Dress and live music at The Hope with live music from the Mojo Crew. From 9.00pm. Up on the hill at the Hampden Arms in South Heighton, Mickey Hart and The Hartbreakers bring you some good old fashioned Rock and Roll, while back in Newhaven High Street Kangaroo Juice will be rocking it at The White Hart.

We don't usually cover the music scene 'Up North', but local band Random are making the long journey up to the Abergavenny Arms at Rodmell tonight and they are always worth a trip to listen to.

Seaford seems quiet tonight though....

On to Saturday morning and don't forget the Newhaven Market, even if the Newhaven Market apparently forgets to tell anyone that it is happening....

Seaford comes alive at last with Friends of the Crouch - Draw your Pooch in the Park. Visit the Crouch between 9am-11am and draw a picture of your dog, to be featured on the new Pooch-in-the-Park tea towel (available to buy nearer Christmas if enough dogs take part). You don't need any artistic skills, experience, or materials! Free to enter.

Saturday and Sunday are Handing in Days for Artwork for Arts@the Crypt Open art exhibition at the Crypt Gallery, Church Street, Seaford. 10am - 4.30pm Saturday. 10am till Noon Sunday.

On to Saturday evening and The Black Fields (pictured) are playing at The Ark in Newhaven from 8.30pm, The Riffz are at The Shore from 9.00pm and down at The Old Boot, the new management is having a good go with a Halloween Masquerade & Fancy Dress Ball with DJ Daniel Crowley of Seahaven FM fame from around 8.30pm.

Sunday afternoon and Seaford Family Focus Group and The Exchange Project invite you to Pumpkin Party. A free family event from 3.00pm - 6.00pm at Crouch Gardens, Seaford. Pumpkin Carving, Storytelling, Face Painting, craft activities, live music, hot soup, tea and cakes and at 6.00pm a Twilight Lantern Parade. At 6.30pm pumpkin judging and prizes. Entries submitted at £1 per entry.

Back at The Old Boot again and Driving Miss Daisy are playing from 4.00pm.
