1. BLOW away the cobwebs on Sunday morning by taking part in a beach run at low tide. Starting and finishing on the west side of Bournemouth Pier at 8am on Sunday, the route follows the shoreline of Bournemouth beach heading out towards Sandbanks beach. There’s a choice of two routes. Both 5km and 10km distances are available to enter. A spokesman said: “It’s a super relaxed fun event running on the sand. The groynes will slow you down which is all part of the fun. Dogs are welcome to run with you on leads.”

2. Following a seven-year break from stand-up, award-winning Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert is back with a new show The Book of John at Lighthouse Poole on Saturday. He says a lot has happened over the past seven years and “almost all of it s**t”. And just when he thought he’d hit rock bottom, he met a bloke... called John.

3. He’s usually treading the boards as a colourful character in a Bournemouth pantomime (he’s starred in the last five shows). But now Noel Brodie is back in town for one night only in a very different role. On Saturday he will be bringing his stand up comedy show In Case You Missed It to Bournemouth Pavilion. The show will feature more hilarious stories from his life, including his current tour with King Of The Jungle Harry Redknapp.

4. An interactive exhibition opens at Red House Museum in Christchurch on Saturday and runs until next February which looks at the future of the High Street. Visitors are taken on a journey down their High Street, from its medieval markets and fairs, through to the prosperity of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Surviving wars and depressions, the High Street emerged into the consumer boom of the 50s and 60s, when everyone was told they had never had it so good. But what is the future of the High Street in the 21st century? Visitors will be invited to think about the role of their High Street today and contribute their own thoughts on how it may prosper in the future.
