You could go to Vue Cinema and spend £8 a person to see the latest Shrek film, Shrek: Forever After.
Or you can take a trip out to Nairn.
The BBC has highlighted Firhall, a settlement on the edge of Nairn where only people over 45 are allowed to live. A village where children are forbidden by contract, the media has delighted in showing them as ‘child-hating ogres’.
We all know they’re just a retirement village trying to keep things quiet, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to watch everyone get up-in-arms about the rule.
You’re also not allowed ducks, rabbits, pigeons or bees. Presumably because rabbits are really noisy. You can have a dog though, if you like.
It’s an interesting way to bring attention to the area. I’m a bit tempted to go there and wander the streets to see if Mike Myers pops out of a door.
