Looking beyond the usual rota of events like Free Fries Friday, Ultimate Frisbee and Touch Rugby, we’ve picked out some of the more unique happenings around the city this weekend. Even on the election weekend, where there is an alcohol ban and no reporting on Saturday and Sunday, there will be plenty of places for you to go to.
As on Thursday we celebrated Children's Day, this weekend has some special events dedicated to the little ones. There is also an America's Fest ... for the America's lovers. Or, if you would like to go to the theatre or a concert, we have you covered!
