Christmas is less than a week away and some well-prepared people around Weston have finished their shopping for the big day.

To keep your Christmas spirit running high, we have put together a list of events which you can get involved in.

n The museum, in Burlington Street, will also be holding the Night Sky Trail from Friday to Sunday.

The event will involve exploring the night sky and finding constellations which form in recognisable patterns, that are traditionally named after its apparent form or identified with a mythological creature.

n It is officially Christmas party season and if you are looking for something to do after the meal you can head down to the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, where it will be holding an 1980s Christmas set with the Martin Kemp, on Friday.

The former EastEnders star and former Spandau Ballet member will be entertaining the crowd from 8pm. Fancy dress is encouraged.

Tickets, priced £19-21 are available at

On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a show at 11am, 3pm and 6.30pm.

Tickets, priced from £21.95, are available at The pantomime will run until December 31.

n If you still have not been to see Santa Claus, there is still time to go before the big day. His grotto at the Grand Pier, in Marine Parade, will be hosting an autism hour on Sunday at 10am.

However, the grotto is still open every day until Christmas Eve so you can still make a trip there with the little ones this weekend. It will be open from 11am.

Tickets, priced £8, can be purchased at

n There will be carols at St Saviour's Hall, in Locking Road, on Sunday, at 3pm.

Attendees will be treated to mince pies, tea and coffee.

This is the perfect way to wind down before the manic of Christmas.
