YOUR one-stop guide to what's coming up at the Ropetackle Arts Centre, Little High Street, Shoreham, in the next week.

Ropetackle's regular big fund- raiser comes tonight (Thursday, January 29) in the form of a glorified pub quiz called Trivia at the Tackle.

It's hosted each month by a stand-up comic and includes all sorts of entertaining multi-media trickery.
