As part of the latest campaign for Microsoft Surface, there are four events taking place in June in association with the Guardian.

Surface is inspiring the next generation of ‘renegade professionals’ – multi-talented individuals who set their own boundaries and live a life of fewer compromises. A new breed of people who are redefining the rules to get more out of life. People who are motivated and ready to take the leap and launch a new business idea or develop a personal project.

Each event will see industry professionals and experienced renegades offer invaluable advice, answer questions, and talk through their personal experience.

The events cover:
- Getting investment (4th June)
- Facing adversity (11th June)
- Standing out from the crowd (18th June)
- Getting connected (25 June)

www.theblackcat.info

Black Cat Cabaret draws inspiration from the Absinthe-soaked underworld of Montmartre in its 1920s heyday, featuring a company of mad musicians, alluring acrobats, decadent dancers and comic characters – brought to life by the intoxicating spirit of the moon.

The uniquely theatrical cabaret spectacular combines the very best cabaret has to offer, crossing the polished high skills of high-end shows such as La Soiree, with the anarchic hellfire humour and musical sensibilities of the Boom Boom Club.

Astrid and Otto are Die Roten Punkte. Orphaned as kids when Astrid was 12 and Otto was nine, the brother and sister duo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ looked back. A Die Roten Punkte gig is a wild, rock ‘n’ roll cabaret ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy and award winning pop songs, constantly interrupted by the squabbling of the dysfunctional siblings.

Fresh from their European dates with Amanda Palmer and sell out shows in Edinburgh, Montreal and Melbourne, Berlin’s Prince and Princess of Indie Rock and Europop are in London to unleash their album ‘Kunst Rock (Art Rock)’. Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say “Hallo!” to your new favourite band.
