What To Do In The UK – October

Posted September 24, 2010 by BookingBuddy

Oysters The onset of autumn doesn’t mean you should stay indoors all the time. Relive your childhood by having a spontaneous game of conkers, or go for a stroll and admire the vibrant red and orange shades of falling leaves. Put on a warm coat and a scarf, and enjoy the various events happening this month.

13th – 28th October – London Film Festival, London

Film-lovers can enjoy previews of new works before they are shown to a wider audience, courtesy of the British Film Institute (BFI). The films include experimental works, animations, short films as well as old black and white favourites.

 

14th – 17th October – Falmouth Oyster Festival, Falmouth

Autumn is a great time for plump, juicy oysters, so head to Falmouth to enjoy this week to enjoy this tasty shellfish. The festival celebrates the start of oyster season, and there will be lots of oysters (as well as other seafood) on offer here. Watch the cooking demonstrations, or enjoy performances of traditional sea shanties, and maybe even take part in the oyster shucking competitions!

 

24th October – October Plenty, Southbank, London

Celebrate harvest customs in the capital. October Plenty is a free festival which takes place in front of Shakespeare’s Globe on the Southbank. Highlights include an effigy of the Corn Queene, laden down with grains, fruits and vegetables to symbolise the harvest. The procession moves through Borough Market, in order to enjoy seasonal delights on offer there, such as cider, biscuits and soul cakes.
