Cheap Fun Things To Do This Weekend In London, Leeds And Edinburgh

Cheap Fun Things To Do This Weekend In London, Leeds And Edinburgh

The Debrief: Just because it's cold doesn't mean the fun has to stop.


Watch Mean Girls (again) at Hyde Park Picturehouse in Leeds

Because the novelty of watching Mean Girls in the cinema never gets old, head to Leeds' Hyde Park Picturehouse this weekend to catch the now TWELVE YEARS OLD FILM for a slightly late celebration of October 3rd, Mean Girls day. Tickets start at five quid (woo) and, it's on at 11PM at night which means boozing beforehand is not so much encouraged as it is required.

Mean Girls, Hyde Park Picturehouse, Leeds, Saturday 15th October. Get tickets here.

Keep the festival season going at Hackney Wonderland

Just because summer is over doesn't mean the festival have to stop. Head to London's east end for Hackney Wonderland this weekend to catch indie throwback sets from Mystery Jets and We Are Scientists as well as Swim Deep, Lucy Rose, Is Tropical and loads more. Tickets are only £27.50 and you don't have to sleep in a tent because the whole thing is, rather sensibly for October, based inside. Nice.

Hackney Wonderland, various venues, London, Saturday 15th October and Sunday 16th October. Get tickets here.

Buy loads of new clothes at The Brixton Vintage Kilo Sale and the Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair

If you're after some new clothes but can't handle showing up to work or uni in the same H&M grunge cami dress as everyone else you know, head to one of two excellent vintage events happening in London this weekend. The first is the Brixton Vintage Kilo Sale where you can buy like a kabillion things (OK a kilo's worth) of stuff for just £15 which, as long as you lay off the heavy jumpers can get you FAR. Over in Clerkenwell there's your chance to get your hands on some more upmarket gear for still excellent prices. Keep  your eyes peeled for that vintage Prada backpack.

Brixton Vintage Kilo Sale, Saturday 15th October. More info here. Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair, Sunday 16th October, more info here.

Go and party for a good cause at the Oxjam Edinburgh Takeover 2016

Get gigging AND do it for a good cause with Edinburgh's OXJAM takeover this weekend as they commandeer loads of venues across the city to put on excellent music. All money raised from the very cheap tickets goes to the Oxfam Emergency Response which will go to one of 25 different emergency response situations around the world.

Oxjam Edinburgh Takeover, October 15th, more information here.

Get your fill at the KERB 4th Birthday

Kerb, one of London's biggest street food parties celebrates it's fourth birthday this Friday and, to celebrate, they're obviously having a party in Kings Cross. Obviously there's all their favourite sellers knocking about and some BBQ Dreamz and Oh My Dog! are even doing mash-ups. What that means we can only dream of.

Kerb Street Food 4th Birthday, 14th October. More information here.
