The Cage, Reigate hosts Eddy and Tom on Friday 18th, so-called sweethearts of the Cage, and to quote the website they are back for a sumptuous evening.

Local lad Dan Henwood will play an acoustic set on Saturday 19th with a great mix of songs from folk to modern indie.

Books.

Book of the week is “The Body” by Bill Bryson. Not content with opening our eager eyes to the world with his witty and drily engaging travel guides. (Notes on a Small Island anyone?)  Bill is now taking our hands and giving us a singular tour of the human body. The science book of the year – it is on a special half price offer at Redhill and Reigate Waterstones. A bargain at twice the price.

Our wonderful local libraries, Redhill, Merstham, Reigate and Horley always have events and stuff going on for all ages. These range from children’s singing sessions, to knitting circles to computer advice. If you are struggling to find your ‘what to read next’ do ask a member of staff.
