Looking for something to do in Kingston this weekend?

We've got you covered with our picks of the events and activities happening in our town this Saturday and Sunday.

Here's what you won't want to miss:

SATURDAY: Jenny Eclair: Sixty! (FFS!) at the Rose Theatre

Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA 'The Face of Vagisan' confronts a new decade of decrepitude.

Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she's filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole? What will her 60s hold for this 1960s babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?

Tickets from £22, few left so book now to bag your place. Start time is 7.30pm.

SATURDAY: Surbiton Symphony Orchestra Presents: Romantic Classics at St Andrew's Church.

Surbiton Symphony Orchestra returns to St. Andrew's Church, Surbiton, for a programme sure to warm even the coldest of January evenings!

Programme includes Elgar's Serenade for Strings, Wagner's Prelude and Liebestod from 'Tristan und Isolde' and Rachmaninoff's Symphony No.2.

Tickets from £7 on the door and a £2 discount with Eventbrite. Concert starts at 7.30pm. Venue: St Andrew's Church, Maple Road.

SATURDAY: Celebration of Tamil Culture in New Malden


Parade starts at 11am and goes through New Malden high street.

There will be speeches from MPs and Kingston Mayor then a celebration of Tamil culture until 3pm with dancing, performances and a cultural exhibit.
