Looking for ways to keep you out of the cold this weekend? Here are just some of the great events going on in our county.

If you fancy a trip to the cinema then Flight (15) staring Denzel Washington is the film to watch. Flight is a provocative drama following Captain Whip (Washington) as he attempts to dodge the repercussions of his reckless actions. A routine flight becomes a nightmare when the aeroplane suddenly loses altitudes, hurtling towards the ground. Whip is forced to perform a daredevil manoeuvre to halt the descent before crash landing. A investigation is then launched by the safety board, threatening to expose Whip’s problems. The film deals with a mix of exciting action scenes, and emotional moments, keeping you gripped for the entire film.
