Unmissable Things To Do in London – October 2017
All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown), and the sky is grey. So here’s our list of unmissable things to do in London this October to brighten up your autumn!
This month’s top picks include outrageous cabaret, comedy gold, that Harry Potter chap, horror thrills and chills, sexy vegan food, exciting theatre & much more…
Don’t miss this outrageous cabaret of circus, including the hula-hoop wonder that is Symoné and your host ‘drag prince’ Alfie Ordinary (pictured).
Chris Chan presents his high-velocity 45 minute musical comedy masterpiece as part of the China Changing Festival at Southbank Centre.
We’re delighted to see Desiree Burch is hitting the big time, she has some important things to say about sex, race and capitalism. Take heed.
Get to know a new museum in the dark. There are so many unmissable museums taking part this time, including some of our faves: spooky boat rides at London Canal Museum, an event on brands engaging your emotions at Museum of Brands and Packaging and Advertising, and an LGBT tour of the Houses of Parliament.
The Vietnamese Community in Deptford want to share the Moon Festival with you. Join in with free activities, food and a Vietnamese lion parade.
Live action horror seems to be the flavour of the month. The London Horror Festival is a collection of spooky through to terrifying theatrical jerks.
Remember how you weren’t sure you needed to see another Mad Max movie, and then Fury Road was one of the best films of 2015? Well, Blade Runner 2049 looks set to pull off the same trick. The trailer looks amazing, and early reviews are ecstatic – but we think it’s best to avoid any potential spoilers, just re-watch the original and then get to the head of the line on Thursday (oh, and we hear you need to see it on the biggest screen you can find).
Vegan Chinese food is a rarity in London as far as we’ve seen (tell us if we’re wrong). Savour the ‘inauthentic’ flavours of China at this delicious Dalston dining event.
Sunday Assembly presents a free (donations welcome) morning of song, zombies, community spirit and the end of the world.
