Go to jail...The Shawshank Redemption

Fancy staying in a cell or working in a prison laundry? Ever wondered what immersive theatre is? Secret Cinema's sold-out production of The Shawshank Redemption have extended their run. Spend an evening in one of the most corrupt and formidable penitentiaries in the state, where parole is granted to those who redeem themselves by displaying good conduct and joining the various cultural activities in the prison... Oo-er!

Rumble in the jumble

Fancy picking up one of Fearne Cotton's Mulberry dresses? Or a pair of shoes from Alison Mosshart? Now's your chance. Dawn Porter and Gemma Cairney are hosting a charity jumble sale to raise money for abused women in the Democratic Republic of Congo; and they've convinced tons of celebs to donate. Elbows at the ready.

Saturday, Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, £3 + jumble to donate, facebook.com/themusiccircle

Watch... England vs Australia at Netball

This weekend could be a historic moment for English netball. Proving once and for all that netball really should be recognised as a professional sport, our girls are up against Australia on Saturday for the third match in a test series. Prior to this series beginning, England had only ever beaten the Australian team twice. With two wins already under their belt this week, here's hoping for a hattrick this weekend and a whitewash for the title.

Drink... Bourbon in Brighton

Continuing the rising trend for bourbon based cocktails (thank you Don Draper) the 1920’s prohibition inspired Buffalo Bourbon Empire speak-easy bar is Brighton & Hove’s newest secret. For two weeks only (so basically go NOW!), sample Old Fashioneds while trying your luck on the roulette table.
