Reviews: Don't say you haven't...

Seen... delicate china become one of the latest victims to catch the designer's eye. Peter Ting, Thomas Goode's in-house designer, creates china collections for clients ranging from style makers Elton John and the late Gianni Versace to Prince Charles. His exhibition will put one- offs and limited editions on sale, and you can swill champers and quaff canapes at a special view tonight at 5.30pm (tickets cost pounds 10). To 28 February. Thomas Goode, 19 South Audley Street, W1 (0171-499 2823).

Made... up your own mind about American singer-songwriter Meredith Brooks. Her star has risen against the back drop of Alanis Morissette's mastery of the female pop universe. But what did Brooks expect if she pens songs with titles like her hit single, "Bitch". Brooks has since proved her critics wrong, or at least shown that the public can't get enough of angsty females. 20 Feb. The Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow. Debating Hall, Manchester University.
