FAMILY friendly Sundays are a regular fixture on the Doghouse calendar and this weekend there’s a merry mix of music, fun and food to keep all ages entertained (3pm to 7.30pm).

With four bands on the bill – In Fear of Olive, Serious Sam Barrett, Clockwork Radio and St Somebody – there will be live sounds from 3.30pm at Arden Road Social Club, Halifax, and children’s entertainer Uncle Don will be making little faces light up from 4.30pm in a separate room.

Michael Ainsworth of Halifax-based music promoters Doghouse says: “Our family friendly Sundays are always lovely event. There’s something for everybody with a great range of live music and a kids’ entertainer too.”

Admission is £6 for adults (£5 for frequent Doghouse guests), with admission for under 16s £3 (under-4s get in free). There’s also free parking, a raffle and autumnal food to tempt the taste buds of all ages and palates.

In Fear of Olive gigged extensively in 2011, and supported Howard Devoto’s Magazine. Serious Sam Barrett is a solo acoustic artist. Clockwork Radio are Manchester-based while St Somebody, who kick off the afternoon’s live music, are billed as “an exciting new band from West Yorkshire”.
