What is the best way to show (non-interactive) widgets on the lock screen?

I have bought WidgetLocker, but it forces me to unlock the screen twice (using both WidgetLocker and native slider).

(Using Android 2.3.2 on a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.)

Can you disable the stock lock screen and only use WidgetLocker? –  Daniel Apr 21 '11 at 17:47

Lockscreen Calendar is a fairly lightweight app to display your next few upcoming events on your lockscreen.

Unfortunately, it does not currently support recurring events.

Probably Damian gave you the best answer. An alternative I could suggest is, if you have rooted your phone, consider trying MIUI ROM cause the new version (1.6) has the a theming lockscreen with already dozens of available themes and tweaks. Maybe you find what your looking for there.
