Salute Pink Floyd

A new exhibition at the Air Gallery confirms the iconographic status of legendary rock band, Pink Floyd. Varying Shades of Pink, the brainchild of artist and Pink Floyd fanatic Steve Geary, comprises eight acrylic-on-canvas interpretations of each of Pink Floyd's eight albums, including Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon, Atom Heart Mother and Division Bell. In addition, there is a limited edition of 100 prints of four selected images, selling at pounds 100.

Not bad for a band, once described by DJ Pete Murray as "a con".

Adults only Volcano Theatre Company

Volcano Theatre Company are back with a typically controversial piece entitled After the Orgy at the Queen Elizabeth Hall tomorrow night, and then on tour around the country. In their latest show, the company, who are celebrating 10 years of inspiring, shocking and challenging audiences, take a post-modern look at the plight of an era bloated by excess, drunk on consumption and numbed by increasingly ineffective highs - hence the question "What are you doing after the orgy?" There's also a complementary physical participation event at The Bull Theatre in Barnet today, led by members of the company, and exploring their startling methods and techniques. Sounds intriguing. QEH, South Bank, London SE1 (0171-960 4242) tomorrow 7.45pm; Bull Theatre, Barnet, Herts (0181-449 0048) today from 12noon

Win Tomb Raider & Deathtrap Dungeon

Lara Croft devotees are in a frenzy right now at the news that Eidos Interactive have just released an exclusive new merchandise pack, Lethal, Loaded and Irresistible: Everything You Wanted from Lara Croft. Available only with Tomb Raider II on PC CD-Rom format, the pack includes a mousemat of a reclining Lara, special edition playing cards and a Lara T-shirt. Since its release last November, Tomb Raider II has remained pre-eminent among computer games thanks to Lara's unique assets. Eidos have also launched a new budget range The Eidos Premier Collection. To mark the launch, they've added Unfinished Business - four new bonus levels - to the original Tomb Raider title (also on PC Cd-Rom). If you've overdosed on the female equivalent to Indiana Jones, why not consider Deathtrap Dungeon, Eidos's new 3D action adventure based on Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy books. Released on 27 March, it will be available on both PC CD- Rom and PlayStation formats.

We have 20 copies of Deathtrap Dungeon and of Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business to give away. In addition, we are offering 10 copies of Lethal, Loaded and Irresistible.

Support Unicef

What better than a swanky night out on the town in aid of a good cause. The Unicef Celebrity Auction in celebration of the 70th Academy Awards takes place at the refurbished Hanover Grand on 23 March. The auction, which includes items relating to Diana, Princess of Wales, David Bowie, Darcey Bussell, Audrey Hepburn and Prince Naseem Hamed (right) will be followed by some serious partying with DJs including Brandon Block, Alex P, Chris Philips and The Hit Squad. The dress code is very Hollywood and champagne and canapes will be served. All proceeds from the evening will go to fund Unicef's work in aid of Children in Southern Sudan, following the recent conflict.

Tickets are priced at pounds 25 (whole evening); pounds 10 for the party only. Ticket Hotline: 0171-405 5592. Hanover Grand, Hanover St, Mayfair, London W1
