Friday Fun - 27th October 2023

 After over a decade of the Friday joke, I've made an executive decision that this feature is being changed to 'Friday Fun'. It has seemed to me that there is scope for a bit more. Giving a few good things locally a platform as well a mandatory joke or two. 

We will start with a joke that made me snigger. Like a great many others, it was from the rather wonderful Mr Robert Wilkinson (check out his books, it's the least we can do for the supply of rib ticklers).

So what have you got lined up for the weekend? I've got a busy one. Treating my nephew and his brand new wife to a curry this evening to celebrate his nuptuals! Tomorrow it's off to Brickfield Lane (opposite the Gate Pub)  to watch the mighty Hadley FC. Why not get your fix of football at your local club, the oldest in the Borough of Barnet - full details of fixtures etc CLICK HERE

When I've had my fill of football, I'm heading up the hill to Barnet and the Bull Theatre where my band, The False Dots will be appearing with Barnet legend The Silencerz. The Silencerz are an excellent band, originally put together by Lee Thompson of Madness, who still appears with them. Check this out

There are plenty of other gigs this weekend in the Borough of Barnet, here is our selection

The Bull Arts Centre
Sat 28th October 2023  - CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

The Silencerz plus The False Dots

Barnet's favourite ska band is back with an evening of fun and great music. Maybe with a hint of Halloween?  They are back 'Doing Their Thing' - and it is going to be great.
Come and dance the blues away.   Licensed bar to 11pm.
Doors open at 7.30pm.
Come early and catch The False Dots - "North West London's finest ska/punk band. Nicely sardonic with flights of fancy and social comment in equal measure."
