FRIDAY: Orlando Weeks at St John's Church

Orlando Weeks, best known as the frontman of former indie rock group The Maccabees, comes to Kingston for an intimate show at St John's Church.

The show celebrates the release of Weeks' second solo album 'Hop Up' which has the singles Look Who's Talking Now and Deep Down Way Out.

Speaking to NME about the album last year, Weeks said: "My writing over the last 10 or 15 years has been trying to take something confusing, difficult or sad, and try and turn it into something positive.

"With this record and this song, I was just trying to make something positive without needing to explore difficult things. It's just to savour and cultivate joyful things."

SATURDAY: Kingstonian vs Wingate & Finchley

Kingston's semi-professional football club take on another team in the Isthmian Premier League.

The team managed by Hayden Bird are on a hot streak after making it to the Second Round of both the FA Cup and FA Trophy competitions in the 2019-20 season.

Now 6th in the League, can the squad defeat 15th placed rivals Wingate & Finchley?
