What To Do This Weekend: Watch, Listen, Read...
007 is back! In the explosive new installment in the James Bond franchise Skyfall, we see M’s past come back to haunt her. With MI6 under attack, there’s only one man who can track down the enemy and destroy the threat. His name is Bond. James Bond.
Daniel Craig is on top form and with an emotional performance from Dame Judy Dench and a geniusly evil villain played by Javier Bardem, it’s quite possibly the best Bond yet.

Go and see… James Mylne ‘Vintage Vogue’
Doodling on your notepad is one thing but James Mylne’s artwork created using BIC biros is something else altogether. ‘Vintage Vogue’ focuses on 40’s, 50’s and 60’s female style icons and his drawing of Audrey Hepburn could easily be mistaken for a photograph. At Rook & Raven Gallery until Tuesday, don’t miss your chance to see his latest solo show.
