1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mercury Theatre, Balkerne Gate, Colchester, until Sunday, various times. £11.50 to £28 with discounts available. 01206 573948.

IT’S your final chance to catch the show they’ve all been talking about over at the Mercury as their gag-filled fun-packed show comes to an end. I’m hoping the brilliant trio of Dame Antony Stuart-Hicks, comedy genius sidekick Dale Superville, and the utterly spellbinding Carli Norris return for next year - just saying Mercury people!

2. Harvey Taylor: Collected Works, Minories Gallery, High Street, Colchester, 10am to 4pm. Free. 01206 712437.

One of the area’s most accomplished and celebrated artists and tutors, Harvey has just had some of his paintings exhibited in China. Here’s a chance to see his evocative and beautiful works in his home town.

3. Rose Finn-Kelcey: Power for the People, Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, Colchester, until March 4, 10am to 5pm. Free. 01206 713700.

More art, this time by one of the country’s unsung creatives, whose works are thought-provoking, a little bit left field but always fun.

4. SlackFolk, Piatto Café, Priory Walk, Colchester, tomorrow, 2pm, Free but donations welcome. 07850 773291.

The first Slack folk of the year will see sets by the likes Jim S Reynolds, Trevor Attwater and Peter Kerr and Friends. There’s also Dave Rado’s a capella community song plus a few songs from the SlackFolk MC himself, Richard Brazear.

5. The Room (18) and The Disaster Artist (15), Firstsite Art Gallery, Lewis Gardens, Colchester, Sunday 6.30pm (The Room) and 8.30pm (The Disaster Artist). £8, £7 concessions for each film. 01206 713700.

See what they did there, a chance to see the ‘worst film ever made’ and then the Hollywood movie based on it. Very apt at the moment with the recent Golden Globe Awards where actor James Franco picked up the prize for best actor playing the man who nearly upstaged him on the night, Tommy Wiseau, the man behind the now cult classic, The Room.
