Photography brand Lomography is celebrating its 20th birthday with an outing to shoot skaters at Spinningfields’ recently reopened ice rink. The event will offer budding photographers the chance to try out its multi-lensed cameras, the Actionsampler, Supersampler and Oktomat. Participants will be introduced to the cameras, given a roll of film and 10% off processing – plus birthday cake and drinks back at the Oldham Street shop after the event. They can also take a spin on the rink itself (£8.50 entry; £7.50 conc), which is now open every day from 10am until 8.30pm (9.30pm Thu – Sat) until Sunday 6 January – click here for more information.

Those in celebratory mood may also be interested in joining Lomography’s in-store birthday party (Fri 23 Nov, 20 Oldham Street, M1 1JN, 7pm, FREE) – featuring live music from Swiss Lips and Hang Loose DJs, plus ‘cold drinks and birthday bumps’.
