Whether you’ve lived there for years or this is your first time experiencing London, it is a city full of fun and events all year round that simply encourages people and tourists to visit and enjoy the sights. Introverts and extroverts alike, sports personalities, fabric enthusiasts and everyone in between, there is something in London for everyone. So why not hire a minibus with a bunch of friends and take a look for yourself?
There are a number of great events occurring across the next few months, and for those of you who err on the nerdy side of things, there is no shortage of London happenings. Take a look at three of our favourite events that are on in London in the upcoming months.
Agent November needs your help! Or so the website says. This series of crime thriller escapades has been designed as a teamwork exercise across London for groups of friends, family members and even co-workers. There are different challenges for you to try out and everything is conducted ‘in character’. For a fun and different twist on your usual ‘murder mystery’ or crime solving activity that makes good use of the whole of London as its playground, Agent November is a great choice for any group of tourists.
The game itself is designed to last 60 minutes, although the entire booking slot is 2 hours long to allow for preliminary research and the initial briefing. Tickets must be booked in advance and are £119 per team. Your team will need to meet at the Somerstown Coffee House, about 5 minutes’ walk from Euston station and for the session to begin you will have to provide the required password to the bar staff there.
V & A Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art
Re-opening on the 4th November and showcasing a whopping 550 works from the sixth century to the present day, the V&A’s Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art is a great way to see the evolution of Japanese art in all its forms right up to this point. Whether you’re a fan of more classical forms of Japanese art, you love their cooking designs and styles or you just love everything Japanese in general, it is sure to be an informative and educational day out.
The gallery is open all week from 10am – 5:45pm apart from Fridays, where the opening hours are 10am – 10pm. Entry is free and the museum is easily reached by the South Kensington tube station, by car or by hired coach.
Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions
For those who are fans of the Pokémon video game series, this December at the Apollo Theatre in London the Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions orchestra will be showing. A fully orchestral arrangement of in game music and sounds accompanies a giant screen which will also show footage of the games. From the classic Pokémon Red and Blue (Green in Japan) right up to the latest releases of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby as well as potentially music and backing tracks from the spin off games, a number of different tracks will be played, delighting fans everywhere.
This event is part of a larger tour heading across the USA and coming to the UK for December 20th, with a European tour also in the works for spring 2016. The theatre is a mere three minutes’ walk from the Piccadilly Circus tube station or can be easily accessed by a taxi.
