Southampton listings 1 – 7 November

Southampton listings 1 – 7 November

There’s a lot more going on in and around Southampton this week than firework displays – though there are a lot of those. There’s now a temptation to write the rest of this piece, highlighting some of the delights on this week with lots of bonfire night themed puns – going with a bang etc. But, lets be honest, you don’t want to read that, I don’t want to write it, so lets just…not.

Instead, I’m going to draw your attention to some of what’s on this week and then you can click on to the link below, from Shop Local to get the full listing. Sound good? Excellent.
