Ex BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave is excited for Bonfire Night, a D’n’B workout, a cinema classic sing-a-long and a Japanese Taiko performance this month…
It’s my one year anniversary with you all! And what better way to celebrate (excuse the pun) than wrapping up warm and getting out and about in MK to enjoy some awesome events.
Here are my favourite finds for November…
I love Bonfire Night and there are plenty of displays and celebrations being held in MK and the surrounding towns and villages for you to enjoy. Sparklers, toffee apple cider, staring up into the sky – what’s not to love?
Check with your local pub to see what they have planned or head over to Campbell Park for a free display on the 4th to enjoy with friends and family. If keeping fit in the cold and dark winter months is a struggle for you then I have found the perfect solution.
Rebellion fitness host their drum ‘n’ bass workout Fight Klub on the 5th of November and throughout the rest of the month for you to try.
This full body workout is perfect for getting your heart racing whilst being motivated by loud drum ‘n’ bass music. Secure your place at bookwhen.com to see what the hype is all about.
Alternative Cinema Sessions are hosting the ultimate girl’s night out with their Dirty Dancing Sing-a-Long screening on the 17th.
The event starts with a vocal warm up followed by a night of fun with free props and popcorn to enjoy whilst you belt out the songs and enjoy the film. So dust off your leotard and cha cha cha over to Facebook to get tickets.
For something totally different, how about immersing yourself in some Japanese Taiko, which is all about vibrations of drums and different instruments working together to create music.
On the 23rd, the Taiko Meantime: Resonance Tour heads to The Stables to bring a performance to ‘shake audiences physically and emotionally’ with a mixture of compositions and rhythms. Visit stables.org for tickets and more information.
