October event highlights in London

Written by Ruby Hinchliffe

Day / Night Out

Deep Sea Disco at Colours Hoxton

(Saturday 5th October 9pm – 3am)

Want to enjoy a night full of disco classics whilst also helping the environment? Then this might just be your jam. Not only will The Tropical Disco Hustle be behind the decks, but 25% of the booking fee for your ticket will go to UK charity Surfers Against Sewage, who tackle plastic pollution and protect our coastlines.

Tickets: First release £4 with £1 booking fee

Book & Zine Festival

The London Spanish Book & Zine Fair at St Peters

(Friday 4th – Saturday 5th October)

The first fair of its kind in the UK, this two day event aims to promote and recognise Spanish literature (with versions translated into English). It will also be an opportunity for authors to meet publishers and acquire new audiences within the UK.

Tickets: Free (but book in advance)

Affordable Art Fair

Affordable Art Fair at Battersea Evolution

(Wednesday 16th October at 5:30pm – Sunday 20th October at 6pm)

The handpicked contemporary art will range between £50 to £6,000. Whether you fancy a splurge or just want to ogle at a whole load of art, we think this could be one to pop into. The event tells attendees to ‘party like it’s 1999’ if they decide to come on Thursday evening, which includes a complimentary drink and live DJs, whilst the weekend will have coffee and cake.

Tickets: £29.16 for an adult

Hackney Pub

Hand of Glory Pub

Created by artists Jaguar Shoes, this pub screams old British folk, bringing you country ciders, cask ales and a seasonal cocktail, as well as a variety of teas and espressos. Oh, and don’t forget the maypole.

Events happen here every month, so check them out too, or just head down to soak up some of the unique decor the space offers over a pint.

Tickets: (for all events this month) Free

Watch “the film of the year” for £4.99

The Joker at Pekhamplex

Dubbed “film of the year” of Empire, this is not a blockbuster to be missed. And what better place to see it than at one of the consistently cheapest cinemas in London?

It’s a “a radical new take on the Clown Prince of Crime” – you ready?

Tickets: Always £4.99
