PUBLISHED: 17:00 21 June 2019
There is always something to do in Weston but this promises to be one of the best of the year.
Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend take the headlines but there is plenty to enjoy.
* There will be a jigsaw exhibition held at the museum, in Burlington Street, until July 3.
More than 200 puzzles will completely take over one of the exhibition rooms.
The free event will start from 10am-5pm and all proceeds will be donated to the RNLI.
* On Weston's seafront, in Marine Parade, the Air Festival and Armed Forces weekend will be taking place on both Saturday and Sunday.
There will be a mix of space aerobic displays and the armed forces celebrations during the free event.
During both days there will be plenty of entertainment for the whole family including stalls, a fairground and activities.
The famous Red Arrows will also be performing an all new 2019 display routine during the festival.
* The Weston Light Orchestra will perform a concert on Saturday evening at the museum, in Burlington Street, at 7pm.
Tickets, priced £7.50 are available online at www.westonmuseum.org/events.
The orchestra will be celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2020.
* The Errors will sing in The Brit Bar, in High Street on Saturday at 8pm.
* For the perfect Sunday family day, a charity reggae and SKA fun day will be held at the Golden Lion, in High Street, Worle, to raise money for Ready Steady Go nursery, on Sunday at 4pm.
There will be live music from children entertainer Joe Malik as Joey Reggae.
Activities such as face-painting will be available, a race night and a raffle will take place.
The nursery's roof collapsed after being struck by lightning on June 7.
The business owners, Tara Maher and Sam Filer have had to find a new location for the day care nursery as they wait to hear about the future of their business.
A GoFundMe page to raise cash has also been set up, at www.gofundme.com/nursery-hit-by-lighting
