If you get off early and would rather challenge yourself than drink by yourself, then catch a documentary at META House. My Thai Bride screens at 4pm. David Tucker’s film looks to provide a unique insight into the Thai-foreigner marriage industry. It tells the true story of Ted, a 46-year old salesman from Wales, who visits Thailand on business and falls in love with the bar girl Tip.

If your intellectual itch still hasn’t been scratched then stick around in META House for Children of Krousar Thmey at 7pm. Marcus d’Arcy follows 32 orphans in the notorious Thai refugee camp “Site 2”.

Berlin Sin-City screens over at META House at 7pm. The film looks at life during the Weimar Republic, when Berlin was a cauldron of hedonism.

Alchemy hosts an evening of live jazz from 8pm, featuring the Upside Quartet. Euan Gray does the vocals, Larry Martinez on the piano, Andrey Meshcheryakov slapping the bass and Antti Siitonen on drums.
