October’s Super Seven things to do in London

Emma Bevan’s Super Seven things to do in London this October: There are some months I love more than others, but as I went for my early morning walk today around Hyde Park, it was as if there was a secret club out enjoying the lifting mist. There were dog walkers, joggers, walkers, the wildlife, and let’s not forget those early morning swimmers! I thought, I really wouldn’t want to be anywhere else this month, so if you think London looks great – you are right. Walk it, and enjoy it.

 Here are some cultural tip top tips for you to get your head around;

·       The art exhibitions I wouldn’t miss are: Abstract Expressionism at The Royal Academy until Jan 2. Turner Prize at Tate Britain until Jan 2 and Beyond Caravaggio, this is going to be one stellar exhibition at the National Gallery 12 October – 15 January.

·       The Other Art Fair at Old Truman Brewery for affordable art, and an excuse to hang out in East London 6-9 October and Frieze in Regents Park 6-9 October.

·       Carlos Acosta: Classical Farewell at The Royal Albert Hall 3-7 October. The iconic Cuban dancer leaping one last time.

·       Why? What’s Happening for the Young: A celebration of children’s rights, but also what’s out there for our teenagers. Click HERE.

·       Halloween: BFI are showing The Rocky Horror Show, always good for an insane evening! 

·       Museums at Night 27-29 October.  Out of Hours fun at a ton of locations all over the country, but also LONDON. Click HERE.

·       BFI London Film Festival. Any excuse to go and see films during the day and I’m there. Our top pick is from the golden era of Hollywood musicals is La La Land – but of course it sold out immediately!

 

Extras:

·       Book NTLIVE No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter for 15 December.  See those stage icons together Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart.

·       Revolution at the V&A.  I think this is a MUST for anyone born in the 60’s or who lived the 60’s… Either way you come out with a real feel good factor.

·       British Academy Debates: I haven’t tried these, but you can register and the talks are free. I’m definitely looking into it – so watch this space.

·       London Chocolate Show : 14-16 October at Olympia. If you need any further temptation of what you can do with chocolate.

·       Letters Live at Freemasons Hall: 4-8 October Listen to big names read famous literary correspondence. It’s an exceptional evenings entertainment, and the line-up is usually a secret. Click HERE.
