DOWN The Belfast Community Gospel Choir will be coming to Bangor Elim on Saturday May 9. All the proceeds go towards the work of the Bangor Elim Family Foundation and the work of Davy and Esther Allen in Cambodia. Tickets £10 available at the Church, and at Faith Mission Bookshop, Bangor.

ARMAGH This Friday and Saturday meet Herman and Daisy at the Market Place Theatre. They want to make shoes for your feet. But they owe so much money they barely can eat. Don't worry though, because magic is always just around the corner. The Elves are here to help. Fidget Feet's The Elves & The Shoemaker is immersive storytelling with music and aerial circus for children aged between four and eight and their families.

FERMANAGH Take part in Saturday's 10K Fun Run / 3K Walk at 2pm, through the beautiful surroundings of Colebrooke Estate. Registration from 12pm to 1.30pm in Colebrooke Church Hall.

Strictly 15 years and over competing, with cash prizes for those taking part in the 10K. All proceeds in aid of Brookeborough and District Community Playgroup Funds.

TYRONE The Sperrin Choir present an evening devoted to the glitz and glamour of the musical this Thursday evening at the Burnavon Theatre Cookstown in The Magic of the Musicals. The audience will be transported from 1950s right through to the modern day. Includes some of the world's most famous melodies written by composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Claude Schonberg and Stephen Schwartz.

DERRY See Goitse perform live this Saturday at An Coire, Maghera. Formed in Limerick University's Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, the quintet have graduated with a musical maturity worthy of the greatest. They have made a name for themselves as one of the most sought-after bands among connoisseurs of Irish traditional music, having won critical plaudits for their Dónal Lunny-produced second album Transformed.

ANTRIM Fresh from a West End run of The Trials of Oscar Wilde, European Arts Company returns with a thrilling adaptation of Wilde's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray on Friday at the Theatre at the Mill, Newtownabbey. Set in the decadent world of Victorian London, a beautiful, narcissistic young man called Dorian Gray becomes infatuated by the exquisite portrait that Basil Hallward has painted of him. Combining drawing room comedy and Gothic horror, this is a gripping and hugely entertaining theatrical event.
