THIS NOVEMBER, Aberystwyth has a lot to offer in the form of events, large and small across a variety of venues: here are a few to look out for.

Coming up in the Arts Centre this month we have the regular variety of events. This is headlined by the Abertoir Horror Festival, showing from the 5th to the 10th of November. Abertoir is Wales’ International Horror Festival, including: films, guest speakers, cult screenings, live music and much more! This year there is a focus on Peter Cushing and celebrating his life, as it is his centennial year. Being one of the larger events of the year for the Arts Centre it’s worth a look.

Continuing on the Peter Crushing theme and also to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who, the Arts Centre is showing a rare screening of Doctor Who and the Daleks – two of the original Dalek movies. Only £8 to see both films on the 16th. The Arts Centre are also showing the 50th Anniversary episode; Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor on the big screen, which can be seen on the 23rd and 24th.

Other highlights from the Arts Centre include some outstanding comedy in the forms of Milton Jones (10th), Paul Merton (17th) and Alan Davies (28th). The performances start at 8pm with prices ranging from £10-£25. Finally there is a live broadcast performance of Richard II at 7pm on the 13th, with encore screenings on the 15th and 19th for all those Shakespeare fans out there.

Coming up at the Commodore cinema, we have the next big Marvel instalment in Thor 2: The Dark World, followed by Captain Philips, starring Tom Hanks. Both very different films, but definitely worth checking out.

Last but not least, let’s not forget the smaller venues around town, namely that of the pubs! Scholars and Rummers regularly host live music, with regular updates online of what’s on. Rummers also plays host to Rewired’s open mic nights and with another mic night at Varsity at the end the month, there is a lot of local talent to discover.
