There'll be a totally tropical taste to Twickenham today when the Meke Dancers (above) and Republic of Fiji Forces Band come together at Kneller Hall for an al fresco evening of Fijian music, singing and dance. The organisers, the Royal Commonwealth Society, are encouraging families to bring picnics and rugs with them to Hall's playing fields, and the provision of a beer tent and free parking are the added incentives for those willing to brave the elements.

Kneller Hall, Whitton Road, Twickenham, Middlesex (tickets: 0171-766 9202) today. Gates open at 5pm, event runs 6-8pm
