Stuck for something to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered.

Destination City 2022

Gather your flatmates for this whirlwind event boasting three carnival-inspired fairs and an opportunity to show your competitive streak, not through a headset, but in the real world of large-scale games.

You could also become a pirate for the day in a mass treasure hunt or enter the maze of adventures and hope you do not bump into a minotaur. Put your books down and dance the night away with a free reminder of what your city has to offer.

For this free event head over to the City of London on Saturday.

Battersea Power Station: Festival of Power

After a extensive redevelopment the iconic Battersea Power Station is now open to the public.

A light show duel between two lords is set to be more epic than Star Wars and is very on-brand given the all-new Electric Boulevard.

Luxury fashion brands, bars and restaurants serving food ranging from pancakes to poke opened on Friday.

The redevelopment of this Grand II listed building is complete, and in good time for Christmas shopping to commence.

Black History Month: Poets’ Corner Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf will be a hub for spoken word and poetry over the next two weeks (check the days of events on the website).

Creatives and budding performers are encouraged to take centre stage and share their own stories and talent with likeminded audience members after each performance. Calling all the Black poets of KU: it’s your time to shine.

London cocktail week

Whether you prefer your drinks as dry as your sense of humour or as sweet as honey, this week peaks the interest of social drinkers across the capital.

There are 300 participating bars to crawl between and £7 unlimited cocktails after the purchase of £15 wristbands are waiting to be sipped on.

Exclusive pop-ups and cocktail tours will be a foggy memory for those taking advantage of the 11 hour drinking experience from October 14-23.
