MEMBERS of the public are invited to have A Bit of a Do as a local social enterprise celebrates the opening of new conservatory in a night of food and entertainment.

Basics Plus@Betton Farm, which provides work for people with learning disabilities, will be holding a joint party with Stephen Joseph Theatre’s OutReach department tomorrow.

Avis Turner, chief executive of Basics Plus said: “It’s given us another 40 seats and it’s good for the students; it runs as any normal visitor centre, which is great.

“We need this to succeed as we’re facing huge cuts from government funding, so we’re earning income instead of relying on government grants.”

A Bit of a Do runs from 7-11pm, featuring OutReach community performers, music by Raven and John Watton, compered by actor Dan Welch, plus a buffet with hog roast.

Tickets are £21, available on the door or in advance at Betton Farm Shop or Pinkney Grunwells in Westborough.
