Villagers in Wetherden will be able to see in the new year at the village hall with a variety of entertainers for adults and children.

The evening is being organised by the Stow Hundreds with a night of original music and entertainment starting at 8.30pm.

It includes Fishclaw, an instrumental seven-piece group based in Colchester, featuring accordion, fiddle/mandolin, guitar, double bass, whistle/flute, bodhrán and drums and they will also have a caller for a ceilidh.

This year they performed at Latitude, Brentwood Festival and were the closing band at Swanfest.
