1. As You Like It, Castle House, Castle Hill, Dedham, until tomorrow, gates 6pm, show starts 8pm. £15, available from ticketsource.co.uk/dedhamplayers

A fantastic setting with a glorious local cast of favourites, what better way could you spend an English summer’s evening, oh, for it to be in the middle of a heatwave. So soak up the sun, sink a sausage roll or two, and take in a lovely bit of the bard.

2. Summer Screen: Bridget Jones’s Diary (tonight, 7.30pm) Beauty and the Beast (tomorrow, 2pm), The Greatest Showman (tomorrow, 7pm) Moana (Sunday, 2pm), The Last Jedi (Sunday, 7pm), Castle Park, Colchester. £7 advance, £8.50 door, children £5 advance, £6.50 door. 01206 573948.

Yay it’s summer, the tennis is on, it’s hot, and what’s more we’re still in the World Cup! why not cap it all off with a super screening of a classic film - don’t mind if I do.

3. Firestarter: John Ball and the Great Revolt, Colchester Arts Centre, Church Street, Colchester, tonight, doors 7.30pm. £8, £7 concessions. 01206 500900.

An early music concert with a difference with a revolutionary way of hearing Medieval and Renaissance pieces coupled with stories about a homegrown revolutionary - possibly.

4. Colchester Royal British Legion Walk of Honour, Castle Park, Colchester, 11am to 2pm. £5 per adult, £3 per child or £10 for a family ticket.

Marking the centenary of the end of the war to end all wars, people remember, and give thanks, to those who died in that Great War but also the many conflicts since.

5. Free Folk in Brexit Britain: The Dead Rat Orchestra and Sutari + The Dyr Sister, Colchester Arts Centre, Church Street, Colchester, doors 7.30pm. £8, £7 for concessions. 01206 500900.

There’s always a something a little bit different when the Dead Rats make a home town visit and this show, I suspect, will be very much in a similar vein.

Except they’ve now found a Polish trio who share their taste for the bizarre and eclectic.
