The photos – all of which give an insight into homlessness – were all taken by homeless people themselves. The exhibition is on at Nottingham's Intu Victoria Centre until December 23. For more information (and how to get a Stories of the Streets calendar) click here. GET A BESPOKE CHRISTMAS BAUBLE How many people can say they have their own personalised Christmas baubles from ceramic artist Jayne Redmond? Not many. But you could get in on the action if that sounds like it's up your street. Head down to Harrods for Jayne Redmond's Christmas pop up, and get your hands on some new, bespoke christmas tree ornaments. It's open Monday-Friday until December 18. And if you can't make it down, you can always check out her designs online. FIGHT PERIOD POVERTY #FreePeriods are calling for an end to period poverty, and so could you. Come down to Parliament Square on Wednesday December 20 at 5pm for a peaceful protest that aims to shed light on the need for governemnt support in ending period poverty in the UK, once and for all. All you need to do is show up in red and support the cause! For more infomation, click here. SEE SOMETHING NEW WITH THE KIDS It may be panto season, but that doesn't mean you have to sit through another production of A Christmas Carol. Take the kids to see The Last Christmas Tree – a play about a friendship between two foxes and... you guessed it, a tree. That's sure to be a hoot. It's on at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on December 10 from 2-4pm. Click here for more information. WATCH A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC AT THE CINEMA We all love a Christmas flick. But sometimes watching them at home doesn't quite cut it. Luckily Pop Up Screens are playing everything from It's A Wonderful Life to Elf right up until December 24 at the Hackney Showroom. Click here for listings and tickets. SEE A PATRIARCHY-SMASHING PRODUCTION Whoever said being woke killed comedy was lying, because Hot Brown Honey – a fun-filled production that takes on stereotypes and injustices through dance, poetry and comedy– have got it down pat. It's on at Manchester's HOME from December 12-23. For tickets to a show that some reviews have called life-changing, click here. TRY SOMETHING NEW Sick of the average Christmas market? This one's likely to give you something a bit different. The Africa Centre in London are hosting their 2017 African Christmas Market from Friday December 8 until Sunday December 10. There'll be plenty of African and Caribbean food, gospel choirs, a santa's grotto and plenty of handmade crafts and products. For more information, click here.
