Woop, Friday’s back around! As ever we bring you our fave FREE and Skint friendly (sub-a-tenner) things to do this weekend.
If the kids need a spot of entertaining for FREE – in the foulest way possible – why not hit up the Museum of London where they’re rediscovering The Great Stink.
The afternoon of story-telling will be looking at the stenchy summer of 1858. Discover all about Victorian pollution and all things foul that occurred on the banks of The Thames 150 years ago. Fascinating and yukky.

Museum of London Docklands, No.1 Warehouse, West India Quay, E14 4AL

Swap your unwanted clothes for some totally different threads at the FREE to enter Swish & Style in North Finchley.
All you need to do is bring along (relatively) decent condition men’s, women’s or kids’ clobber and get trading. Just think of all those unwanted outfits in your wardrobe…. get rid and grab something different. Like the organisers are saying; Swap Don’t Shop!
