Orla bags 1

London dwellers will be able to snap up a bit of Orla Kiely at a bargain price later this week, at their sample sale.

The sale promises past season and sample goodies from one of our favourite designers, so if you want to try and grab a good deal, you'd better head over to the Old Truman Brewery. The sale starts on Thursday 26 May at 11am and runs through to Sunday 29 May. 

Entry costs £1, with the money raised going to charity.

Starlite Urban Drive-In


Always fancied the great American tradition of the drive-in movie but 1) don't live in America 2) don't have a car. Well, the answer to your prayers has arrived with the Starlite Urban Drive-In

It's launching with two nights in the middle of London, at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. There are then plans to tour it around the country. One of the best bits for public transport devotees is that the cars are provided. It may not be the Cadillac of your dreams as the event is sponsored by Volvo, but it's a lot less expensive. Roller-skating waitresses selling popcorn are also promised. 

The choice of films is a bit disappointing – take your teenage daughter to the Twilight evening on Friday 2 July while Grease is the film of choice on the Saturday. 

Booking opens at midday today (Tuesday 1 June) and tickets cost £25. .
