Hello readers, and welcome to another What’s On blog for the month. Autumn is now at full swing as the Clocks go back and Halloween looms around the corner. This blog will therefore focus on the forthcoming October events, particularly those Halloween celebrations you may be interested in if you’re a fan of this spooky night, and also things you can do if you want to avoid it like the plague.
October sees a great deal of festivals and events, such as the German Oktoberfest with its fantastic beverages, the Best of Britannia festival, where you can pick up the very highest quality British products, and finally the Bloomsbury festival, where you can enjoy a variety of live music and entertainment. October also heralds Black History Month, with a great many events taking place to celebrate London’s diverse ethnic culture and also the Big Draw event, embracing the art and creativity of children.
Exhibitions are also in full swing, with the opening of the Power and Passion exhibition, the Mark Humphrey exhibition and Chanel Little Black Jacket exhibition all displaying items that promise to broaden your horizons and inspire you. Trekkies should also keep an eye out for the Start Trek convention this month, as they will be able to meet every captain from every series in person.
Towards the end of the month, don the best and most interesting costumes you can for Halloween! Whether you want to watch horror films, party the night away or just have a nice night with the children, the capital is catering for everyone this year. Among the many events, keep an eye out for the rock legend, Alice Cooper performing live at his Night of Fear concert - perhaps he’ll bring the snake with him again, who knows?
If Halloween is not your thing, and you’d rather do something away from the crowd of ghouls, why not enjoy the launch of the 007 film, Skyfall and embrace the action and gadgetry. Or perhaps you’d rather enjoy some live music from Muse, or side-splitting comedy from Dara O’Briain? One thing is for sure, no matter what your interest, you’ll be able to find something to do in the capital this month.
