You are invited to round off the first day of Cup Match at Summer Meltdown at White Horse on Thursday, August 1.

The first 100 to arrive will receive an e-hookah in a variety of flavours. Entry is $10 before 12.30am and $20 after. If you bring a copy of the Cup Match Fever flyer, entry is $10 all night.

Now in its sixth year, Cup Match Fever is doing something different for 2013. This year, their Cup Match after-party will pit Old School against New School at Gombeys, Clearwater, with over 1,200 revellers expected. Gombeys will be transformed into a huge outdoor club on the beach, equipped with laser lights and a smoked dance floor. Team Old School will be playing the best in 80s, 90s, and up to 2005 while Team New School will be playing the hits from 2005 to the present. The party will kick off at 8pm and a coin toss will start the one hour battle at 9pm sharp. All genres of music will be played during the battle and patrons will crown the winner at 2am. The winner will then play a victory hour until 3am. Tickets are $30 and available from Kit n Caboodle, Jazzy Boutique, Gombeys, The Cave in St George’s, and all event DJs.

Bermudian dancer and choreographer Eric Bean Jr. presents his latest production, ‘Through The Looking Glass’, at the Earl Cameron Theatre in City Hall from Friday, August 16 until Sunday, August 18. As well as two new works from Eric Bean, the show will feature some of Bermuda’s talented local dance artists as well as international guest performers from the acclaimed Koresh Dance Company. Showtime is at 8pm on the Friday and Saturday and 7pm on the Sunday. Tickets are $30 for general admission and $50 for Patrons, with student and group rates also available. Tickets are on sale at City Hall Box Office or at www.JariccoDance.com.

Aimed at capturing the bond between fathers/male role models of little princesses, Bermuda’s 1st Annual Tiaras and Bow Ties will be on Saturday, September 28. This Daddy-Daughter Princess Dance is for young ladies aged between four and 16 years old and will be at Washington House on Church Street, across from City Hall. From 6.30pm, the evening promises to be full of fantasy and fun with hors d’oeuvres and drinks, party favours, princess face-painting, photos, and special performances from overseas princess guests Cinderella, Jasmine and Ariel. It will all finish around 9.30pm, so plenty of time to get home before you turn into a pumpkin. Proceeds will benefit Childwatch and the Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust. Tickets are $80 and are available from www.bdatix.com or Kit ‘n’ Caboodle.
