We’ve got everything covered this week: charity events, nights out and plenty of UoN students singing, dancing and acting.

1.Oxfam Society Clothes Swap @ Ropewalk

Thursday, 7.30pm, 50p

As part of their week of events to celebrate International Women’s Day, Oxfam Society are holding a clothes swap at Ropewalk this week. At only 50p (which includes a dessert buffet – how could you resist?!) this will be a great event for an amazing cause.

3. Blackbird @ New Theatre

Wednesday – Saturday, times vary, £4

New Theatre’s main show offering this week tells the tale of Ray and Una. Ray was imprisoned 15 years earlier for his sexual affair with Una, then aged 12. Expect dealings in morality and explosive emotions.
