Saturday 16 October 2010
Get linguistically prepared for your next adventure at the Language Show 2010, this weekend at Earl's Court in London. For £30 you can take an instant, intensive course in Arabic, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Chinese, French and German ( thelanguageshow.co.uk). If boats are more your thing, the Cruise Show is at the NEC Birmingham, with two days of talks from leading experts, inspiration and advice for trips on anything from river to luxury and family cruises, plus an Elemis spa treatment bus ( cruisingshow.co.uk).
The world's largest consumer winter sports event, the Ski & Snowboard Show, runs from 20 to 24 October at Olympia in London and aims to recreate "the mountain atmosphere". And for added gastro glamour, on Friday 22 October, the Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal, left, will be at the show to judge the Three Valleys cook-off competition, which focuses on regional ingredients ( metrosnow.co.uk).
