The pre-Christmas weekend is almost with us and oh what fun we have in store as we aim for the big day, so get out there and join the fun... 

Start the extended weekend off with a Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long at The Ark in Newhaven from 6.00pm to 8.00pm, then climb the mountain to The Hampden Arms up at South Heighton where the ever popular Brass Monkeys are swinging and singing and rocking and rolling from 9.00pm. Or you could head over to The Cinque Ports in Seaford where Folk Rock favourites Bucklers Reel will be Folking and Rocking, also from 9.00pm.

On to Saturday and it's the Seaford Rock and Jazz Orchestra Christmas Cracker at Seaford Head Upper School Hall, Arundel Road from 7.30 to 10. Tickets are £5, with concessions (under 16 and Seniors) at £3. Tickets are available at the door, or can be reserved by ringing Peter on 01323 897360.

In Newhaven there is a great choice of music with a Christmas Jumper Disco at The Hope, where you can dig out those awful crimbo jumpers and dance to some cheesy tunes, or there is Reggae Magic live at Newhaven Social Club from 8.30pm - £2 entry on the door for non-members. Meanwhile, down at The Ark, guitar led, top pub band Full House (pictured) will be playing from 9.00pm.

On to Sunday and The Ark stays busy with a promising set from well-known local musicians Oli and Chaz making their duet debut from 9.00pm. Certain to be a goodie.

Monday is Christmas Eve, in case you have forgotten, and once again The Ark will be jumping through 'til 1.00am with top local band Welcome To Nutsville playing and promising a mystery special guest from around 9.00pm. Meanwhile, up at The Hampden Arms there is a Vintage Disco for lovers of the 60's 70's and 80's.

Go on - get out there and join in...
