The Montague Arms is holding a quiz show tonight where you will not be expected to show your nerdy side. On the contrary, this show celebrates people who cannot memorize all the usual trivia asked on quiz shows.

Make sure you don’t leave your creativity at home, as you will be asked to write, make up your own jokes and draw pictures and diagrams. The winner will get a prize.

Join the fun 20:30 – 23:00.

Ticket prices are £3 for players; £2 concessions.

Friday – 2nd birthday of Die Freche Muse @ Dalston

The Baron Von Sanderson is inviting you to Die Freche Muse’s second birthday.

Anyone attending the party will time travel decades back as the club is created in the tradition of European Cabaret: “irreverent, decadent, sexually ambivalent and dissolute.”

So let yourself revel in the unusual atmosphere of the cabaret, and be entertained by burlesque performers, jazz and swing tunes, and exotica from the 1900s to the 1940s.

The dress code is strictly 20s, 30s or 40s.

Tickets are £12 at the door, and £10 in advance.

Form 10pm to 4am.

If you want to shake up your Saturday shopping habits and ditch the high street, this market is a must-visit for you.

Anyone interested in art but struggling to find something to hang up on their wall may find some very interesting paintings. Those with a grumbling stomach can enjoy great food, and music junkies can momentarily take off their earphones and absorb some live music.

The market will be running every Saturday 11am – 5pm until September.

Entry is free.

The exhibition is an opportunity to explore a collection of never-before-seen pictures of cruising trips taken between 1925 and 1970. From the faces of relaxed holiday-makers, to portraits of the overworked crew, the show will give you a glimpse at both sides of life on the cruise ships.

Gallery is open from 10am – 5pm.

Entry is free.

Tuesday – Freedom of Expression @ Green Dragon, Croydon

If you crave some live music to cheer you up before mid-week, Green Dragon has the cure.
