Lovely little jumble sale and local craft artist fair with an indoor cafe and the equally lovely Half My Heart Beats club DJs providing sweetly twee tuneage. Organised by The Littlest Birds, which is also a lovely name. Loveliness all round, really.

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School

Where cabaret meets life drawing – the models are burlesque divas, strapping hunks of manhood and circus freaks. Win alcohol and fancy art supply prizes at this antidote to solemn, lifeless classes.
