Wednesday 4 March: Focus

Will Smith and Margot Robbie may have made one of the most fun films of the year with heist drama Focus. The two play con artists, Nicky and Jess, who find themselves caught up in the middle of an important, high risk scheme – but love is ruining their well-set plans. At the London press conference, Will said of the movie: "It’s a heist film but then it will be a bizarre comedy for a while and then it’s really serious and there is great action… and then there’s a wonderful love story in the centre of the film."


Thursday 6 March – Welsh Week

To celebrate St David's Day, Brand Exchange in London is running Welsh Week, a week celebrating the county's art, food, music and culture. On Thursday, well-known forager and restaurateur Ed Sykes, the owner of Hotel and Restaurant Llys Meddyg, will be holding a cookery demonstration, creating typical Welsh dishes an array of fine wild ingredients from the ancient woodlands of Pembrokeshire.
