The music is usually cranked up for Unicorn ceilidh nights in Baldock on the last Friday of the month – but this year that’s Good Friday, so the team has pulled the date forward a week.

That means that trio Melobo and caller Jane Bird will be at St Mary’s Hall in Church Street from 8pm tomorrow night – doors open at 7.30pm.

This month’s guests hail from over Oxford way, where they are renowned for providing an unusual sound which mixes up melodeon, fiddle, oboe, recorder and guitars.

It’s £10 for adults, with seniors over 65 paying £9 and children under 18 £6.

Students and those without jobs pay £7, but the first six students before 8pm get in free.
