Friday March 29
Mr Scruff at Canvas
|Canvas Loft Bar 45 Poole Hill, BH2 5PW Bournemouth|
Before we delve into April events, don’t miss Mr Scruff at Canvas, on Poole Hill, this Friday. Before heading off to Paris, he’s playing Bournemouth and Southampton. Bringing his unique brand of funk, electro and tech, you can expect floor-filling tracks past and present. He’s best known for his mixing skills… and his love of tea. See www.bournemouthnews.info for a preview.
Monday April 1
Techno Tapas at Lolas Restaurant

From the team who brought you Toma Sundays, the new night for students from the UK and beyond, plus Bournemouth’s eclectic international community, is Monday night at Lolas Restaurant. Ivan de la Fuente and friends will take to the decks so you can dance off your tasty tapas tea. See www.facebook.com/lolas.homemadetapas for more information and menus.
Sunday April 7
Health On-Line Bournemouth Bay Run
The annual beach run for charity is ideal for people of all fitness levels. Join the Lansdowne insurance team and their family and friends to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Saturday April 13
Canvas Comedy with Jen Brister
|Canvas Loft Bar 45 Poole Hill, BH2 5PW, Bournemouth|
The Canvas Comedy show is a relatively new monthly night and ideal for a Saturday night out that doesn’t involve a hangover… necessarily! Instead, buy one of Canvas’s cool cocktails and enjoy the comedy stylings of Jen Brister, who you may have seen on BBC shows such as Live At The Apollo. Your host for the night of shots and giggles is Luke Honnoraty. See www.canvasbournemouth.com for £8 early bird tickets.
Friday April 19
Poole St George’s Day Family Music & Beer Festival
|Poole St George’s Day Festival The St Aldhelm’s Centre, Branksome|
Celebrate England’s patron saint with your friends and family at The St Aldhelm’s Center. There will be live local and tribute acts but the main attraction will be the beer tent, for sure.
