October is also when the SWN festival takes over Cardiff with some of the best music around It's over three days from the 22nd to the 24th of October. I went to this festival in 2007 and it was really good, loads of venues where invovled and it works in the same way as South by South West in the States where bands play in different venues across the city. Bands this year include The Pipettes, Cate le Bon and The Longcut to name a few.

Another two events happening in the area is the Trendsetter party on the 1st of October at The Revolution Vodka Bar in Newport, a club night that celebrates fashion, creativity and paired with some great DJ's should be a good night. There is of coursee as I have mentioned before Bristol Fashion week from 26th Sept-4th Oct at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, which will have a catwalk show running everyday, showcasing the best the High street has to offer with labels such as Reiss, Jigsaw, LK Bennett, Whistles and Hobbs to name a few, there will also be hair advice and makeover styling from SAKS.
