6 Ten in a Bar are performing a re-run of their anniversary show on Saturday. Let’s Celebrate is a special show marking the 25th anniversary of the close harmony group, based in Swindon’s Old Town. The singers, led by founder and artistic director Jill Hodge, will reprise the show on Saturday, June 9 at Immanuel Church, Upham Road, Swindon.

Martin Read, who recently worked with singer/songwriter Rob Richings providing backing vocals for the EP Halfway Up and the album Parkas and Boots, both of which have been played on national radio, is a stalwart of Ten In A Bar.

He said: “The show features a selection our favourite songs performed over the last quarter of a century! As well as singing a mixture of both classical and popular music we will also be performing a comedy sketch set in an A&E department - to the music of Les Miserables!’’

It was in 1992 that Jill pulled all the strands together of her love of music, drama and a sprinkling of humour to form Ten In A Bar, so named because there were originally ten singers. There are now more than 16!

“I am so very proud of TIAB and all the wonderful singers and musicians who have helped me to fulfil my dreams and aspirations,’’ said Jill. “With the freedom to choose whatever material I liked I quickly developed an identity for the group – I suppose you might now call this a brand! Popular music from the 1940s to the present day hit list was our niche.’’

Tickets for Let’s Celebrate are £8 and are available on the door.

9 Open Farm, Lotmead Farm, on the Wanborough Road just outside Swindon. Lotmead Farm celebrates Open Farm Sunday which has fast becoming a tradition that sees hundreds of farmers across the UK opening up their farms each year at the beginning of June since 2006. A fantastic time for everyone, young and old, to discover at first-hand what it means to be a farmer. It’s also a great opportunity to explore the farm and enjoy all the activities so come and join in the fun. Please feel free to bring your well behaved dog to Lotmead provided they remain on a leash throughout their visit. Whilst we know that our fruit is irresistible, please refrain from nibbling as you pick. Once you’ve finished picking and have paid you’re more than welcome to enjoy your fruit in the picnic area – maybe even treat yourself to a cold drink and cake to go with them! Entry to pick fruit and vegetable is free, although we do ask for a small pre-payment per person, which is redeemable against what you pick (minimum spend applies). Pre-payment was introduced in 2017 as the future of Lotmead was suffering due to pickers eating their fill in the field before leaving with empty punnets. The pre-payment is the same as the minimum spend so you’ll find that this won’t affect what you pay at the end of the day. For more details call 01793 790137 or visit https://www.lotmead.co.uk
