TGIF!: Your weekend guide (30 May - 1 June 2014)

From the slime-filled shenanigans at the Nickelodeon Slime Cup, to the brutal mixed martial arts fights of the One FC and the tap dance spectacular that is 'Tap Dogs', here's what to check out this weekend. 

Kids & family

Head down to United Square for the Nickelodeon Slime Cup, also known as the slimiest sports event ever!

You can even get up close with Nickelodeon characterslike Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star. More details here. Don’t forget to bring an extra set of clothes!
