Weston may have missed out on a dusting of snow, but there’s still plenty of reasons to get out and about in town this weekend.

*Weston Museum will display an exciting new archeological find this weekend; a Iron Age artefact known as the Clevedon Torc.

The object, which was made by a goldsmith between 150 and 50BC, will be on loan from the British Museum for the next three years.

It was discovered near Walton Castle, in Clevedon, in the 19th century and would have been worn by a particularly powerful person.

The Clevedon Torc will be on display at Weston Museum from January 31. Entry is free.

*A production of Swan Lake will be performed at The Playhouse Theatre on Sunday.

The Bristol Russian Ballet School will enact the classic tale of Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with the Swan Princess Odette.

Swan Lake will be staged at The Playhouse Theatre at 4pm on Sunday.

Tickets, priced £15-18, are available
