We’ve turned the corner into November and we’re welcoming the new month with open arms. The crispness in the air and the dark evenings have made us all extremely excited for the festive season. With a new month comes new adventures and new memories. Here are our top five places to be over the weekend!

Frank Pig Says Hello at Town Hall Theatre
On Friday, November 2nd – twenty-five years after its first ground-breaking tour – Pat McCabe’s Frank Pig Says Hello returns in a new production that brilliantly captures the legendary original.

Afternoon tea at Hotel Meyrick
This weekend, why not indulge yourself in the decadence that is Hotel Meyrick’s afternoon tea. Remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of city life and spend the day relaxing in the Parlour Lounge. With their resident pianist setting the mood, it’s hard to think of a better way to spend the day.
