Friday, October 2
End your mad days at work with a line-up of fantastic daily events at ON14, located on the 14th floor of OZO Colombo. It's got one of the best panoramic sunset views in the city, and is the perfect place to unwind with your colleagues or friends after a tedious day at work. OZO, 36–38, Clifford Place, Colombo 4,
If you've never been a part of a choir—either as a chorister or in the audience—the Festival of Choirs is a must-attend event. The festival is organised by the Western Music Society of Royal College and the event will take place at 6 PM on October 2 at the Bishop’s College Auditorium. Bishop's College Auditorium, Boyd Place, Colombo 7.

Carry a parasol, wrap your head in a turban or get yourself a cap. Take a bottle of water, wear comfortable flip flops — there's a lot of walking involved.But even if you don't take along any of these, there is one object you simply can't forget — your smartphone. Why? Because the Instameet is coming around again. Castle Hotel, Masjidul Jamiah Road, Colombo 2.
In our opinion, the perfect Sunday is one where you have music, lots of good food and even more family fun. That's exactly what's on offer at Sensational Sunday 2015, a day of rest and relaxation at the picturesque Hotel Ramadia located alongside the Bolgoda Lake. Hotel Ramadia, 346/5, Galle Road (Main Highway), Gorakana, Moratuwa.
Have a great weekend.
