What's on this weekend

THIS weekend will see lots of events across the Isle of Wight raising money for the Joe Ellis Trust. 

This evening (Saturday), Ryde Pier Head will be transformed into a pop-up cinema. The free screening of 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' has been jointly organised by Wightlink, the County Press and Isle of Wight Radio. Those who attend must have a ticket in advance, available via Wightlink, and are asked to make a donation for Joe's trust. 

Fundraising for the trust will continue tomorrow (Sunday) across the Island, focusing around three mini music festivals. The Bargeman's Rest in Newport will have live music from 1pm until close, and Dimbola Lodge have put together a sixties-themed day of entertainment from 4pm onwards for £12 entry (or £10 advance). 

Meanwhile, The King Lud will be hosting 'Ludfest' on Ryde Esplanade from 11am onwards, with over 12 hours of live music, and a raffle.

Other events include the annual St. John's Church, Ryde, summer fete today (Saturday) from noon until 4pm, with stalls, entertainment and a barbecue. 

Also this evening (Saturday), Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra will put on their final concert of the season at 7:15pm in Medina Theatre. They will be playing Borodin's Prince Igor Overture, Finzi's Clarinet Concerto with guest soloist Kimon Perry, concluding with Ralph Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 2 in D (A London Symphony).
