FAB Five The Tweenies are returning to the Alban Arena next week with their brand-new live show Top of the Tots.

It is an all-new music show packed full of family favourites and such tunes as Gonna Build a House, Incy Wincy Spider, Wheels on the Bus and Do the Lollipop.

But Milo, Jake, Bella, Fizz and Doodles aren't the only stars of the show - they want to get the audience involved as well.

This year The Tweenies celebrate their 10th anniversary and promise a combination of musical magic and the usual energy and entertainment.

Tweenies Live! can be seen at 4.30pm next Tuesday, June 23, and at 11am and 2pm next Wednesday and Thursday, June 24 and 25.

Tickets are £16.50 for adults and £14.50 for under-16s with a family ticket available at £58.

They can be obtained from the box office on 01727 844488.

ää Legends of the Oche comes to the Arena next Sunday, June 28, with such legends as Bobby George, the King of Bling, Eric Bristow, the Crafty Cockney, and John Lowe, Old Stoneface.

The standard of darts produced by the three icons of the sport is still of the highest quality and is mixed with the humour of Duncan Norvelle, who is on hand to chat with the players and elicit a few memories from their illustrious careers.

They are appearing at 4.30pm and there will be two hours of arrows action with large screens so nobody misses a shot. The highlight will be when the champions go head to head in a live match.

Tickets are £12.50 for unreserved cabaret seating and £10 for reserved balcony seating. Doors open at 3pm.

ää Former Byrds frontman and founding member Roger McGuinn brings his solo tour to the Arena on Tuesday, June 30.

A key member of The Byrds, one of the most influential bands of the sixties, Roger was singer, songwriter and lead guitarist.

Aiming to fuse the socially-aware folk music of Dylan with the increasingly popular guitar pop music of The Beatles, The Byrds ended up with a unique sound of their own.

Hit single Eight Miles High is often credited with being one of the first psychedelic rock recordings and Sweetheart of the Rodeo is largely responsible for creating country rock.

But it is Mr Tambourine Man for which The Byrds are most remembered because it was a number one hit in both the UK and US charts. The band went on to cover a lot of Dylan's songs including a famous recording of All I Really Want To Do.

Roger comes on stage at 8pm and tickets are £24.50.
