Take a trip to some of the most unusual events held in the capital!

When it comes to going out to an event, what usually comes to mind first? Something to do with Arts & Crafts, Sports, Music or Food. After you’ve taken a turn on all of these categories, there’s usually nothing left. That’s where we come in. Ever thought of trying something a little different or unusual? Take a look at some of the events that we think you should take a trip to.
