London’s independent theatre scene gets the much deserved spotlight this weekend with two events showcasing the finest in new writing, while the original afrobeats sound takes over East London on Friday, leaving Sunday for good eats and drinks galore…
Just as the temperature drops, a brand new film festival dedicated to flicks from the colder climes of Europe sweeps into town, while Somerset House are giving ice skaters another reason to visit thanks to the dazzling couture of Valentino.

This weekend sees the Southbank Centre declare the arrival of winter with its annual festival dedicated to all things Chrismassy. While those not quite ready to get into the spirit of it all can enjoy a street photography workshop in the East, a flick about graffiti writers, fried chicken in Brixton and a unusual dedication to the beauty of dancing on ice.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: autumn always offers the best events in the capital – so after combing through a number of fun and curious going-ons, we’ve curated a weekend that features sausages, Ferris Bueller, international street art, a 20-year-old film fest, dinosaurs, democratic storytelling – and the chance to check out the most innovative writing this side of the Thames. Godspeed friends, godspeed.
Fresh off the back of last month’s London film fest comes a foreign film takeover this weekend, with exciting festival programmes from Korea, Russia and Africa expected to entertain and inspire the capital’s self-respecting cinephiles.

Howdy, adventurers – we’re out of town this weekend as we’re making our way to Amsterdam to run hard (and play harder), but we leave you with a brilliant weekend that looks a little something like this: hip-hop dance by the good man Jonzi D, a fashion exhibition dedicated to sneakers, a new eatery in West that we’ll be having brunch at fairly soon, and two creative festivals that’ll remind you why Autumn’s going to be the best season of the year. Enjoy!
We’ve dedicated the next three days to the pursuit of remarkable art – whether it’s heading to the mighty fair that’s Frieze, checking out the Barbican’s new indoor rain installation, watching a critically-acclaimed film, or getting acquainted with six robots named Paul who are offering to draw your portrait for free this weekend.
