Then finally, there’s a lovely do scheduled for Aston Manor Transport Museum in Shenstone Drive, just off Northgate, for Saturday Afternoon from 12 noon to 4pm.

There will be festive food, a proseco and beer bar, gifts, craft stalls, even Father Christmas will be attending – and it’s all for the Isabella Lyttle’s Lyttlefight fund to aid with treatment for the wee girl’s Neuroblastoma treatment.

It’s just £2 in, and you can take a shifty at the museum while you’re there.
