An Eye For Fashion   M Shed, until April
An exhibition of vintage fashion photography by Norman Parkinson, one of Britian’s most significant portrait and fashion photographers of the 20th century. Accompanied by 50s and 60s clothing from the M Shed’s collection.

Protecting Our Children   Monday, 9pm, BBC Two
Following long negotiations with Bristol City Council, NHS Trusts, Family Courts and the police, this documentary series follows Bristol’s social services team over the course of one year, with unprecedented access to the social workers and their clients.

dinewithi   Wednesday, 40 Alfred Place
The fifth pop-up appearance of the grammar and punctuation-bothering outfit once again promises “flavoursome, unfussy, locally sourced food cooked beautifully”. Expect a three-course set menu with some special treats, for only £25.

Inside Men   Thursday, 9pm, BBC One
The second Bristol-set BBC television show of the week, this time a multimillion pound heist drama. Much of the programme was filmed at The Bottle Yard in Hengrove, with other scenes set in the Evening Post offices and former Bank of England building.

Roots Manuva   Friday, Anson Rooms
A hip-hop artist that paved the way for Dizzee Rascal and many of the current generation, Roots Manuva (below) is currently touring to promote his latest album, 4everevolution. A gig worth attending if only to hear him rap about cheese on toast.
