Mascots: On your marks, get set, go!

THE Theatre District will be overrun by furry intruders on Saturday, when the annual Mascot Olympics returns.

Friday, 10th June 2011, 6:25 pm

The cheery sorts will face a series of six events over the course of the day before one of them is crowned champion.

In 2010, Chaddy the Owl from Oldham Athletic took the title, and the contenders this year include our very own MK Dons duo Donny and Mooie, Xscape’s Ape, Pucky from MK Lightning and Gulliver’s Gully Mouse...but there will be plenty of new-city outsiders trying their hardest to come top of the league too.

Things kick off at 10.30am and a fun fair, penalty shoot out and workshops will be part of your day if you pop along.

Admission is free. and proceeds will go to the MK Play Association.

> IT’S That Time of the Month again, and Sunday’s meeting of funny minds at The Cannon in Newport Pagnell is an Edinburgh Festival preview gig for Tony Law.

The Canadian-born, London-based chap is choc-ful of surreal material and delivers it in a truly chilled out fashion.

Let him entertain you before doing the same north of the border.

Tickets are £4 on the doors, a quid cheaper through

Doors open at 7pm.
