Weekend what-to-do (OCT 2-4)

Boys Noize
Brand spanking new décor need not be the only decent thing you see when returning to the Masque (now re-opened) this weekend.

This Saturday, the Boys Noize ‘Power’ World Tour takes over Chibuku and will attract only the cream of the clubbing crop. The solo electro/techno boy-mixer from Berlin- who is globetrotting solidly with this album until his NYE showdown at the Hollywood Palladium- is one mixer that’s not to be missed.

Don’t make the mistake of booking online though. Head to Bold Street’s Resurrection for your ticket and put the money you would have wasted on a booking fee toward a fabulous new outfit for the occasion. Much more sensible.

*Boys Noize, Chibuku, Sat 3rd Oct, the Masque,10pm-3am, tickets £14.50 or £11 NUS

Fancy a bit of S&M?t's foaming steins all the way through till Sunday at the Ship & Mitre which as got a beer festival on.

How can you tell? After all, this is one of Liverpool's best stocked pubs already. But right now there are 100 different real ales, from local brewers and those all over the country, flowing in all strengths and colours, for you to choose from.

There will be a selection on the main bar and the stillage bar will also be up and running. Also, they say, they will be conducting regular cellar runs to make as many different beers available at any one time.

The Burning Kitchen team will be working throughout so there will be no need to go hungry either.

*Real Ale Festival, Ship and Mitre, Dale Street, until Sunday Oct 4. 0151 236 0859

More beer, with pies

Hop on any Halton Transport bus in town this weekend and hop off at the North West Museum of Road Transport, St Helens. Good that you don’t have to be a vehicle enthusiast, but a lover of real ale. The CAMRA Beer, Cider and Pie Festival is back.

In support of the Be Local, Buy Local campaign, this year’s three-day festival has been expanded to include a wider sampling range of food and drink. Expect to find more than 65 real ales and a choice of 20 ciders and perries. Hic.

Entertainment is also booked for the occasion and attendees will have the chance to catch performances from Hoochie Coochie Man and The Lazy River Jazz Band.

• CAMRA Beer, Cider and Pie Festival, the North West Museum of Road

• Transport, St. Helens, until Sat 3rd Oct, from12pm, £5 admission.

Woodland Crafts
Get stuck into the woodier side of life this weekend at Wirral’s Eastham Country Park. There’s a fun-for-all-the-family ‘Working Woodland’ programme that will teach you everything you need and want to know about traditional outdoor crafts. Spend some time alongside bodgers, hurdle makers, woodcarvers and even walking stick makers before trying the one you liked best for free.

On Sunday, visitors can expect the extra delight of Morris Dancing and Apple Day activities to fill the park’s vast space.

Apple Day? Yes, tree dressing, in celebration of the 20th official Apple Day on the 21st of this month. And you thought October was all about Halloween.

*Woodland Crafts, Eastham Country Park, Sat 3rd and Sun 4th Oct, 11am-4pm, free, for more information call 0151 327 1007
