After a long four-day weekend, what better way to rest your sore head than with a scrumptious Sunday roast? Over at Cathedral House, you and your pals can chow down on two mighty courses for just £14.95. Plus, you'll have a fabulous live jazz band soundtracking the whole affair.
Seeing you off into the long weekend, BenDaLeCreme is putting on her highly acclaimed cabaret show on the 2nd of June. Expect a brilliant blend of burlesque, comedy and music as the drag star takes you on a journey through marriage and love over at The Old Fruitmarket.
