“Weekend is a love letter to the energy and creativity of our city, and the surrounding countryside."

Full of great tips every weekend of things to do and places to go – from outings and adventures, to travel, the best of the city’s music, movies, performing arts and visual arts.

We love to dig out the quirky corners, both the magnificent centerpieces of our town and the quirky finds on the fringes. 

Our readers expect us to be the first to know the best there is to do, see and keep them entertained.

They comb the advertising as closely as they do the editorial for inspiration and ideas.”
