Saturday night at the Mill -- and 10 other things to do this weekend!

Those of a certain age might remember a TV programme called ‘Saturday Night At The Mill’.

Pebble Mill, to be exact, the Birmingham home of BBC Midlands TV, which hosted the show between 1976 and 1981.

Well, the title has very different connotations this weekend because Field Mill, or the One Call Stadium, hosts the Stags’ play-off semi-final, first leg against Northampton Town.

And if you’re not there in person, you’re likely to be glued to Sky Sports TV, watching a game that could lead to Nigel Clough’s Mansfield playing at Wembley on Saturday, May 28.

The Stags’ promotion push again dominates the weekend’s schedule. But we’ve tried hard to find alternative attractions, and here they are.

They range from comedy to bushcraft, from recycled sculpture to poetry. And there’s quite a bit going on at Mansfield Market too.

Before you set off, please check the websites of the individual venues for opening times and admission prices.

Have a great weekend. And Up The Stags!
