Fans of music, beer and cricket are in for a treat this weekend as a village cricket club hosts its showpiece event.

Uphill Castle Cricket Club, in Bridgwater Road, will host its Big Bash on Sunday at 10am.

The event is around a fast-paced 10-over cricket tournament packed with quick-bowling and big hitting.

Teams from Hornets and Weston rugby clubs will be involved, as well as The Dolphin pub, Uphill Castle Football Club, and Lympsham and Belvedere Cricket Club.

But if you are not a sports fan, do not let the cricket ruin this perfect bank holiday fun day.

Once the stumps have been put away at 7pm, Madness tribute act Mr Suggs will take to the stage to perform all of the band’s famous hits, like One Step Beyond and Baggy Trousers.

He will be followed by headline act Reoffender.

The Weston-based covers band will perform tunes from artists like Oasis, Kings Of Leon, The Killers and Stereophonics.

Entry to the bash is free.
