5 Things To Do This Weekend... Watch Byzantium and Beyonce
1. Watch... Byzantium
If you’re still grieving the end of Twilight, then sink your teeth into the latest vampire flick to hit our screens this week, Byzantium. The film, from Interview With A Vampire director Neil Jordan, stars former Bond girl Gemma Arterton and Oscar nominated Saoirse Ronan who play 200-year-old vampires attempting to flee their pasts and hide their gory secrets...
2. See Beyonce perform...
Who run the world? GIRLS! Or so will say Beyonce on Saturday as Chime For Change presents the Sound of Change global event. Queen Bey is headlining the epic gig to promote education, health and justice for women around the world. With only a few tickets left, be quick to book and see the likes of Florence and the Machine, HAIM, Jennifer Lopez and Ellie Goulding who are all set to perform.
Saturday 1st June, Twickenham Stadium, http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/thesoundofchange
3. Go to Goodwood
East London music quartet Rudimental and classic British horse racing... What more could you ask for this Friday night? But if you’re too late to Feel the Love this week then don’t miss the remaining two nights of Goodwood: Three Friday Nights which sees Groove Armada’s Andy Cato hit the decks on 14 June and Radio 1’s Trevor Nelson completing the line-up on 21 June.

4. Sign up for Shine
On the 28th September, Shine is holding the annual Cancer Research night time walking marathon across London in a bid to raise money and awareness. And, if you thought glow sticks and neon were just for those underground raves then think again as the route will be lit up by the 10,000 participants symbolising the hope of beating Cancer.

5. Go glam at Goldsmiths
Glitz, glamour and golden jewels! The Ultra Vanities Exhibition will showcase some eye-catching accessories painstakingly crafted for women from the 1920’s through to the 70’s in an attempt to flaunt their wealth and elegance. And if intricately made lipstick cases and cigarette holders isn’t enough, then come see the Hall transformed into a 30’s inspired Parisian salon. Get your gladrags on ladies and get ready to see some bling!
