Welcome back to your one-stop guide to everything that’s happening in your city. This weekend in Lahore is the last weekend of the month. This means we need to go out with a bang, not a whisper. Everything worth checking out this weekend is scheduled for the 26th. If you want to check all five stops out you’ll be a busy bee from 3-10 PM.

It’s good to be ambitious.

open mic

Open Mic Night 2.0

Open Mic Night by Do Teeye Cikkhay is back at it again. The event is one of a kind in a city where the true sense of open mic is often lost. There will be no prescribed topic or method to adhere to. Just a stage and the artist; free to present or engage with any art form the heart desires.

P.S. Register right here to attend.

mushaira

Mushaira in Heera Mandi

Pavillion Lahore, in collaboration with Sweet Tooth, is hosting a poetry recitation night. The theme for this mushaira is “controversy”. The venue is a safe space for anyone airing the skeletons in their closet, wearing their heart on their sleeve or just trying to rip society a new one.

P.S. Register to attend and sign up to perform.

There you have it guys, a complete rundown of everything happening this weekend in Lahore. Let us know if you’re able to make it to every event on this list and we’ll send you a special medal of achievement.
