Weekend whirl'd

.

Ass chance
If you missed the Organic Cherry launch back in March, you'll be glad to know that there's a second chance to see Rob Reeves' imaginative, Da Vinci fun-poking play 'The Ass Code' this Saturday at FACT.

The short quad-casted comic play was deemed such a success at the Bluecoat that it's moving to FACT's Gallery 1 for a second free performance.

Audience members make up their own mind whether The Ass Code is a ridiculous spoof or logical truth. Either way, you should leave laughing.
*Organic Cherry presents The Ass Code, FACT's Gallery 1, Sat 23rd May, arrive before 7.30pm, free, for more information visit www.organiccherry.org.uk

Fete accompli
Craftsmen and women will this Saturday set up for the inaugural market-forum style afternoon event at Heebie Jeebies. Creative designers, vintage sellers, musicians and, of course, shoppers will flock fortnightly under Heebs' Seel Street roof. This is the new village fete.

It's not all costume jewellery and vintage clothing though. There's live music throughout the day from the likes of Polly Mackey, Ruby Macintosh and the Lime Green Capri's. They've even boxed off a BBQ so you won't get hungry. Brilliant.
*The New Village Fete, Heebie Jeebies, Seel Street, L1, Sat 23rd May.

Animal hunt
From this Sunday a wacky wildlife hunt will take over Croxteth Park until the July. The rooms of Lord and Lady Sefton must be acutely examined if you are to find the full range of species that have been found in Croxteth Park over the years.

If you correctly name all twelve hidden animals, your quiz sheet will be entered into a prize draw. One lucky winner will win a family pass to Chester Zoo. And they're not cheap these days.

Horse drawn bus and donkey rides are an additional weather-permitting perk for Hall visitors during this half term week.
*Lord Sefton's Wildlife Hunt, Croxteth Hall, Liverpool 11, from Sun 24th May - Sun 12th July, normal Hall admission price applies

.

Rake's progress
Wirral's Rake Lane Friends Group are set to share their knowledge of the deceased this Sunday with a guided tour of the cemetery.

Many victims of sea disasters, notably Titanic and Thetis, rest in Rake Lane's burial ground which opened in 1883. The walk, which should last around an hour, will detail these striking stories that lie beneath the stones.

The RLFG was set up after youths caused £400,000 worth of damage and smashed many graves beyond repair back in 2006. These interesting walks help the group of volunteers spread the word of their positive work.
*Rake Lane Cemetery Walk, Liscard, nr Wallasey, Sun 24th May, 2pm, free, call 0151 648 4371
