5 Things to Do This Week

  1. The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet film screening. Based on the bestselling novel by Reif Larsen, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet follows the adventures of ten year-old T.S. Spivet, a young boy from an eccentric family in Montana. When one day he is invited to The Smithsonian Institution to accept a prestigious science prize, T.S. decides to leave for Washington D.C. on his own. Known for his eccentric style, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s films are always uniquely engrossing and the chance to see his work on the big screen should not be missed. The film will be screening on Wednesday at 7 pm in the Byre Theatre.

    Unlisted, by Sitara. The ever-popular South-Asian themed fashion show, Sitara, is revamping its image this year with a new preview party: Unlisted. Featuring Sitara’s signature DJ Kalliope, the night promises to be a welcome change of pace and an enticing teaser for this year’s fashion show (keep your eyes peeled for model castings in the coming weeks). Unlisted will be held at Club 601 and entry is £4 online or £5 at the door.

  1. Race2 Launch Night. Get a small team of two or three (including one guy) together and sign up for the highly anticipated Race2 Budapest.
