5 Cheap Things To Do This Weekend In London And The Rest Of The UK: May 13, 14 & 15th

The Debrief: Want to have a banging weekend? Here's what to do.

 1. Buy clothes for a good cause at Rumble In The Jumble

It's back! The biggest and bestest jumble sale of it's kind. Headed up by the ace Gemma Cairney, the jumble sale will have stuff on offer from Kate Moss, Annie Mac, All Saints, Jess Glynne, Paloma Faith, Dawn O' Porter, Gizzi Erskine, Fearne Cotton and loads more. Bring your own stuff to sell too. All proceeds go to help fight gender inequality in Myanmar. Plus there's DJs and food and booze too. It's a fiver to get in.

Rumble In The Jumble, Oval Space, London, May 14th. More info here.

2. Go bonkers for Foxes


The funnest pop star in popland is back. Foxes has a new album and she's on tour now. Go and catch her uber fun live show this weekend in Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow. Tickets are but £18.50.

More info on Foxes' tour here.

3. Go to an Experience Cinema event without the hefty price tag

If Secret Cinema prices make you die a little bit inside then have a look for cheaper (admittedly probably less spectacular, but still hella fun) options in experience cinema. Experience Cinema are doing Top Gun this weekend in the courtyard of the Geffrye Museum in London's Hoxton. On offer is Lucky Voicce karaoke, volleyball, Top Gun cocktails and, of course, the film itself. It's just £16.50 too.

4. In fact, go wild with a second outdoor screening at Luna Cinema

It is summer after all. And Luna Cinema have opened their doors across the country. This weekend their down at Hastings Pier showing Jaws (great shout), RE: A Pier (a documentary about the pier, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Tickets are £13.50

5. Get inspired at Fashion & Freedom

During World War One, the role of women in society changed exponentially. Women went from being tied to the home by the apron strings to becoming factory workers, bus drivers, and working on the London Underground. Obviously their clothes needed to change to reflect their news roles and now, Manchester Art Gallery have a new exhibition in which contemporary designers Vivienne Westwood, Roksanda Ilincic and more have designed new pieces inspired by this change. Even better it's free to get in.

Fashion & Freedom, Manchester Art Gallery, Friday 13th May to 27th May. More info here.
