  • Vue Entertainment and Prop Store Exhibition

    Movie collectibles vendors Prop Store have been gathering some of the most recognisable, memorable and goddamn awesome bits of film ephemera for over a decade now, and will auction off 375 of them in London on October 16. Some of the items are expected to fetch tens of thosands of pounds, but you can see them for free in the fortnight preceding the sale. Drool over one of Wonka's golden tickets, admire Marty McFly's hoverboard, stay a safe distance from Ripley's anti-alien flame thrower and peer at the intricacies of a remote control Batmobile before they get snapped up and go to a new, film-obsessed home.

    Vue Westfield London, until Oct 16

  • The Vaselines

    Incredibly, given their feted status, these underground off-kilter popsters from Glasgow only managed to release one full length album before imploding the week of its release in 1989. They attracted a wider audience in the ’90s when Kurt Cobain relentlessly covered songs like the haunting 'Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam', 'Molly's Lips' and 'Son of a Gun'. Reunited since 2008, here they perform songs from a new album 'V for Vaselines'.

    The Garage, Oct 1

  • Lucy Beaumont - We Can Twerk It Out

    BBC Comedy Award winner and 'Live at the Electric' star Lucy Beaumont deservely received a Best Newcomer nomination at the 2014 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards for this cosy comedy show. In 'We Can Twerk It Out' the Hull-born comic tells fluffy tales of her life up't north and attempts to find her best friend a husband. It's adorable stuff.

    Soho Theatre, until Oct 4

  • Gazelle Twin

    Brighton's Elizabeth Walling is Gazelle Twin, whose divinely eerie, slightly gothic, sumptuously unsettling electronic sounds and enigmatic persona make up a terrific package. Her haunting debut album 'The Entire City' suggests a mix of The Knife, Björk and Salem, and the follow-up 'Unflesh' should be something special too.

    Corsica Studios, Oct 1

The film Philomena, 10 points. The freezing conditions at Cineworld, Piccadily, where a small sign telling us they were sorry to say they were having some problems with the heating was not accurate, there was in fact no heating in screen 1..nil points and minus temp! Shivering whilst you watch.....never good.....
