Bargain Hunter: Get shaken and stirred at London Cocktail Week

 

If you head down to the capital next week, you can try a range of cocktails – and even mix your own – at London Cocktail Week. It claims to be the biggest drinks festival in the world and, for a tenner, you can open the door to the world of mixologists and Martinis.

The event is being held in the Seven Dials area of Covent Garden, in stores and venues such as The Cambridge Satchel Company, Coco de Mer, Foxhall London, Superdry, Tatty Devine and Detroit. You will need to buy a wristband for £10 to join in with special events, but that will get you training and sampling sessions in the area as well as a cocktail tour. To pre-register for a wristband – log on to londoncocktailweek.com or simply buy one on site. It runs from 7 to 13 October.

John Lewis plugs the gaps in guarantees for electrical goods

John Lewis will launch a minimum two-year guarantee on all its electrical products next Thursday. The chain already offers five-year guarantees on TVs and two-year guarantees on computers, tablets and domestic appliances. From 10 October it will extend that two-year minimum guarantee to all electricals and home technology, including games consoles, cameras, audio equipment and small appliances.

Advance notice: how to cut the costs of travelling by train

We could cut £9m off the cost of travelling to see friends, family and loved ones this Christmas by using a Railcard and snapping up cheap Advance tickets that start to go on sale from this week, rail companies say. Railcards offer a third off most train tickets, while thousands of cheap Advance fares will be going on sale for travel during the festive season.

Supermarkets inject savings if you want a jab to fight the flu

If you're planning to get a flu jab this winter, shop around. Members of the bargain site HotUKDeals.com found the jabs cheapest at Asda and Morrisons – where they are just £7. That's nearly half the price of the same vaccine at Boots, where it costs £12.99. The jab is free at GPs for children under two, the over-65s and vulnerable adults in England.
