Fashion Swap Shop
You may see a shopping theme here, but ‘tis the season to buy presents, right? Fashion Swap Shop’s Christmas Market hosts a whopping 11 hours of shopping this Tuesday, with Media One’s garden on 8 packing the stalls in. As well as independent boutiques, vintage sellers and art pieces available, you can take your old designer wears to swap with other fashionistas.

Leave Your Boyfriend at Home
This is now becoming one of the most talked about ladies nights in the city and it’s been a pleasure to both promote and DJ this night. It has great live elements from sax and percussion to the talented local DJs on the rosta playing everything from house to RnB. It’s a guaranteed party.

Bridge of Spies (PG13)
The cinematic dream team that is the Spielberg-Hanks partnership returns with Bridge of Spies, a tense Cold War thriller based on the real-life prisoner exchange negotiation between the Soviet Union and America. Hanks is cast as compassionately judicious US attorney James Donovan, the man tasked with securing the release of a captured American pilot, a job that puts him in both the national spotlight, and eventually behind the perilously dangerous Iron Curtain.
