The Weekend Wrap (April 1 – April 3).

Here are a couple of things to do this weekend and have yourself a good one.

Friday, April 1

V Day 2016: Tenderness

V Day 2016: Tenderness is based on interviews and discussions with people from around Sri Lanka on gender-based and intimate partner violence. This year’s collection of performance pieces are stories that people hardly discuss, because sometimes it’s just too difficult to tell anyone. Who would believe them? But if we listen, people always find a way to tell those stories. To feel the catharsis of the narrative, where in the retelling of the story you purge your demons. And you also laugh at how ridiculous reality can be. Barefoot Cafe, 704, Galle Road, Colombo 3.

Saturday, April 2

The Good Market

The Good Market is on at the Race Course, Colombo as well as Galle this weekend. Drop in for everything organic and unique anytime between 10 AM to 6 PM. The Good Market, as always, is a great spot to see the best of Colombo's food and craft and art scene. Racecourse Car Park, Colombo 7 & Court Square, Galle

With a very successful past year for the band Sevexth, Butterfly Effect vol 1 will be the teaser gig to the album launch. All the secrets relating to the debut album will be revealed right here. Sasakawa Hall, No. 4, 22nd Lane, Colombo 3.


CAN-CER-VIVE is a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, and an outreach to the community. It is our aim to honour cancer survivors and show the world that the life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding and even inspiring. Mahaweli Centre, Green Path, Colombo 7
