What’s On In London

Looking for things to do this month, don’t sweat it, we’ve got lots to keep you busy.
Let us know what you are up to with #lotiloves

The month of bad fancy dress and pumpkin spice is here. Speaking of pumpkins, Yayoi Kusama is bringing her back to town in what is sure to be one of the biggest exhibitions of the year. That and the return of the Tower of London poppies. It’s also the time of the year when a lot of the summer pop-ups make the switch over to their winter versions and when the theatres get even more packed with great shows. The colder nights may make you wanna cosy up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a takeaway but when you’ve got London Cocktail Week and National Curry Week happening this month, you’ll wanna get out of the house.
