Legendary Museum Lates return on Fri 10 Nov

Prepare for a Jacobite takeover next Friday as our legendary Museum Lates  return to mark the final weekend of the Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.
Dust off the do-si-dos for a ceilidh to remember in the Grand Gallery led by The Jacobites ceilidh band, or dance the night away in the silent disco. Then traditional meets contemporary as headliners RnB pop duo Bossy Love take to the stage.
In the auditorium find out what it's like working on Outlander from supporting cast members and experts from the hit television series. Separate Jacobite fact from fiction with our exhibition curators and join the author and founder of REEK Perfume, Sara Sheridan, to find out how the Jacobite era inspired her perfume creations.
Elsewhere, have fun with Jacobite costume capers, learn about Drambuie's Jacobite history and create your own Outlander scene with the Edinburgh Sketcher.

5 Things to Do This Weekend

The days are getting shorter and temperatures are dropping. Winter is well and truly on its way, and with it an array of exciting events, pop-ups and exhibitions to get you in the festive mood.

Whether you fancy rooftop ice-skating or getting your Christmas shopping done early, we've found plenty of ways for you to spend the weekend. Culture vultures: head to the new East Meets West show at the Design Centre while it's in town, or pop into the Hull Comedy Festival for some world-class performances. And remember, remember – this Sunday is Bonfire Night, so head to one of our top spots to enjoy the fireworks.
East Meets West at The Design Centre
Design Centre Chelsea Harbour is launching a new exhibition focusing on the culture, creativity and influence of the Far East, entitled 'East Meets West'.
The exhibition opens today, exploring how Eastern style has caught the imagination of the West. With top designers, architects, collectors and dealers, the exhibition aims to promote London as a centre of expertise for Asian art.

The selling exhibition will take visitors on a journey of exploration of Eastern influences through contemporary Asian treasures and rare antique artefacts. Visitors can enjoy talks, demonstrations, workshops and tours, seeing masters of their crafts showcase their skills up close. 2 – 11 November

Us young'ins are killing off a ton of brands apparently, according to this insightful portrait of the things that do and don't matter to us.
