There's a fair bit of entertainment to take us up to the New Year as we bid farewell to 2017 this weekend.

Here are some ideas if you're stuck for inspiration.

*ENJOY a David Bowie night at the Ocean Room in Weymouth Pavilion tonight (29) from 7.30pm.

The UK's number 1 David Bowie tribute Absolute Bowie is unlike any other Bowie tribute around.

On the eve of the anniversary of David Bowie's passing Absolute Bowie performed a two hour set covering the 70s Ziggy Stardust era and the 80s Thin White Duke era, performing all the classic hits and favourite album tracks.

This show is said to take you back to stunning lookalike era where you'll think you have seen the real thing! Contact the box office for tickets.

*IT can sometimes be a bit quiet between Christmas and New Year but there's a chance to take a special 'Betwixmas' tour of the Furleigh Farm at Salway Ash near Bridport tomorrow or Saturday.

These Grand Tours of the vineyard run at 11am start with a glass of fizz on arrival, then a tour of the vineyard and winery followed by festive canapes and a tasting of sparkling wine. Book tickets through the Furleigh Estate's website.

*SEE Ben Waters and the Ben Waters Big Band perform at Weymouth Pavilion tomorrow (30) from 8pm.

This top boogie woogie piano player, singer and all-round entertainer will really get the party going.

Ben will be joined by his son Tom playing the sax. Tom has been lucky enough to be brought up on good rocking blues and boogie, and is a great exponent of rocking saxophone.

The evening features support from the Amy Mayes Band.

*IF you fancy getting outdoors and taking in some fresh air, a Christmas Trail continues at Durlston Country Park at Swanage until January 1.

It costs £3 per person. Call 01929 424 443 for more information.

*PANTOMIME Sleeping Beauty continues at Weymouth Pavilion until January 1.

It features Dame Lee Redwood in the role of Queen Thelma and marks Lee's 5th Christmas Pantomime at Weymouth Pavilion playing the Dame. Also returning for the third year is the hilarious Gwynfryn West as Muddles, the Court Jester!

Contact the box office for tickets.

*THERE'S still a chance to enjoy Tudor storytelling at Corfe Castle today and tomorrow.

In Tudor times the rich and poor might find themselves at the same festivities. A time when a commoner might rule for a day and a lord wait upon them.

The castle will be open until 7pm for Winter Lights both days. This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

*ON Sunday, New Year's Eve, join more than 20,000 revellers in Weymouth for what is thought to be one of Europe's biggest fancy dress parties.

Venues around the harbourside and seafront will be open for partygoers to count down to midnight and welcome 2018.

Or in Dorchester there'll be celebrations around the Town Pump and in Bridport people will flock to Bucky Doo Square to see in 2018.
