Walter Rose Room, VH

Haddenham sees another very busy weekend ahead, and local residents have no excuse to be sitting at home watching boring TV. (Who cares whether yet another car crash victim has emotional difficulties relating to his neighbour's illegitimate third cousin — we've seen it all before on Casualty, and the hospital staff always patch the broken hearts as well as the bones!!)
No, don't stay in — there are far more interesting and entertaining options available, from Museum Slide Shows to Charity Quiz Nights and from Murder Mystery Plays to Haddenham Youth Theatre productions.
If your inclinations are more musical, then please don't forget the Witchert Chorale "Greater Love" concert on Saturday 29th March, at 7.30pm in St Mary's Church.
The concert is in aid of the Utugi Street Children (Kenya) project.
Conducted by David Quinn, the group will be singing Antonio Lotti's 'Crucifixus' along with pieces by Bach, Byrd, Holst and Ireland.
Tickets (£12; concessions £10 and children £3) are on sale at Blooming Fruity. They are also available from Alison on 01844 291553, from members of the choir, or on the door.
