This week we've got Boy George's photos, a cheap ride on the cable car, a host of adventure exhibitions, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and a way to get yourself some good karma.

1 See Boy George's art at Trinity Buoy Wharf

The pop star and south-east Londoner Boy George is showing off his artistic side at events site Trinity Buoy Wharf (pictured above), near East India DLR.

Photos and screen prints will be available for the masses to see between 6pm and 9pm this Thursday as part of a number of works at a new exhibition space.

Taking place at the Electrician Shop's Art Gallery, entrance is free.
