Stuck for something to do this weekend? Here are TiG's top 10 things to keep you and your family amused and entertained.

  1. Away from the Six Nations, the big match this weekend is the West Country derby between Gloucester Rugby vs Bath Rugby, which kicks off at Kingsholm at 2pm on Saturday.
  2. A new movie about Alfred Hitchcock comes out soon and fans of his classic The 39 Steps can catch a production of it at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, with performances at 7.45pm on Friday night, and Saturday at 2pm and 7.45pm.
  3. There's a new exhibition of paintings of the Cornish coast by pastel master Michael Norman, at the Martin's Gallery in Cheltenham from Friday until next Saturday.
  4. Learn about the Chinese New Year celebrations – it's the Year of the Snake in 2013 – with a Crafty Corner workshop from 11am on Saturday at the Gloucester City Museum.
  5. The warming weather has brought the snowdrops out – see a stunning array of them at Colesbourne Gardens in the Cotswolds on Saturday and Sunday.
  6. Stroud Ceilidhs are putting on a traditional Gaelic folk music and dance gathering at the Subscription Rooms on Saturday night from 8pm onwards.
  7. Comedy fans can get tickled pink by Sean Collins at the Big Laugh Cafe event at Gloucester Guildhall on Saturday evening.
  8. Or if you want to get your laughing gear out for someone else, why not try up-and-coming comic Josh Widdicombe at the Sundial Theatre in Cirencester, also on Saturday night.
  9. Active types can get out on their road bikes with a mini sportive ride – 50 miles, 60 miles, or whatever you fancy – organised by Cheltenham store Fetish Bikes for Sunday morning at 9am.
  10. A week of special events called Candlelit Cathedral starts at Gloucester Cathedral on Sunday, beginning with a Candlemas Eucharist at 10.15am then a choir performance at 4pm.
