Joseph Williams at Room Art
Room Art is such a wonderful concept, away from the informal trappings of the museum and such venues, two rooms in a private home are the setting for a series of exhibits and in this case live music. It couldn’t get anymore bonhomier, this evening the Bristol based singer songwriter Joseph Williams will be performing and there will also be cake.

Make it Reggae at The Night Owl
Event celebrating fifty years of Trojan Records, seminal ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub label founded in – you guessed it – 1968. Knowing this, it’s no surprise that Phil Eccleston is on the bill – nickname: ‘the Ska Father’, favourite styles: two-tone, ska, reggae, mod. Vinyl-only selector Joe Turner will be laying down the classics all night alongside vinyl enthusiast Alex Sloggett, laying down grooves that are guaranteed to get your feet shuffling like you’re playing an unorthodox game of cards. And on top of all that, there’s a jerk BBQ. Say no more? (GW)

Solihull Dining Club at Malvern & Brueton Park

As ever it’s not just the eating with DJs, Digbeth Arts Market and the Dig Brewing Company serving craft ale and cocktails.
