Things to do

You don't need cash, pal - free fun to see you through to payday

Free Bowie exhibition, free pints, free festival

Have you uttered the phrase “That’s what credit cards are for, right!” recently? More than once? Was it first said jauntily, with a wink and half-smile, but now with a terrifying chill? Thought so! What you need is good ol’ free sh*t to see you through to pay day. Today Young’s Pubs are giving away a pint for the company’s 185th birthday; there’s a David Bowie-in-neon exhibition opening at Halcyon Gallery from tomorrow; and Trafalgar Square hosts a two-stage festival of Japanese culture on Sunday.
