From events on Saturday

“Seeing as it's Record Store Day at Rough Trade Bristol today expect live instore daytime DJ sets from Hot Buttered Soul and Soulworks to get you warmed up four our main event at The Plough Inn.”
“Set in the decadence and hedonism of Victorian London, The Picture of Dorian Gray, is a shrewd look into the fading morality of society, but perhaps is even more relevant in today's world than it was when initially penned by Oscar Wilde.”
