How low can you go? Can you go down low? Can you bring it to the top? Can you never ever stop?
These are not only the lyrics of the 2000 dance hit The Cha Cha Slide, but also the actions of my bank account on a weekly basis. As such I’m always looking out for cheap events to go to in Cardiff, and I love sharing them with you each week!

Climate Rebellion! Plan an Action
Thurs 8 Nov 18:30 – Cathays Community Centre – Bring snacks!
A lot of people are tired of ineffectual government action against climate change. With the recent announcement that we probably only have 12 years to do anything about it, lest we face certain doom, the Extinction Rebellion is spreading non-violent displeasure around the UK. I know we have a lot of people who care about climate change on The Sprout, so let’s attend the meeting and make a plan for what to do next.
Festival of Social Sciences – Wales
6-10 Nov – various events

Lycra Presents Freddie’s Friday Night Fandango
Fri 9 Nov – Buffalo – £6
Here’s a club night for all you cool dudes. They won’t stop me now when I’m wearing my 80s workout gear to this usually very smart nightclub. I’ll be caught in a landslide away from reality.
