Collection by Eventbrite UK
The ultimate calendar of live experiences in London today, this weekend, and beyond.

From unmissable gigs to classes, food festivals, and everything in between, we've got your plans covered.
London Event Calendar: The Best Things to Do This Month
  • Where in the world can you drink the best wine – from the old vines of France and Italy, or the young regions of New Zealand and Chile? The experts battle it out (and pour out some tasters).
  • Gain enviable pottery skills at this introductory course, where you'll discover how to throw a potter's wheel (the really fun bit), as well as creating and painting pieces that you can take home.
  • Rich Mix Shoreditch hosts a slam storytelling night, which sees contestants spin a five-minute yarn. Anyone can sign up to perform, but there’s one rule: tell true stories only.
  • Europe’s foremost street food event brings its best vendors to the ExCel centre for a free industry event of cooking masterclasses, innovative business talks and awesome suppliers.
  • Watch the live recording of series 3 of the cheeky comedian’s news and current affairs show at BBC HQ – tickets are free, you’ll get a free beer on arrival and laughs are guaranteed.
  • Be awed by sweeping mountain landscapes and brave alpine explorers without having to feel the cold, at this climbing and adventure film festival in Holborn.
  • Three years before he died, David Bowie wrote a list of 100 books that changed his life. Music journalist John O’Connell discusses the insight it offers into the icon’s creativity.
  • Trump-hating, Republican satirist P.J. O’Rourke dissects the US presidential primary campaign alongside Democrat commentator Lionel Shriver. Expect American insight laced with political ridicule.
  • Can you remember one club night that didn’t end with Mr Brightside? Us neither – so you might as well sing along in style at The Blues Kitchen Brixton’s live rendition.
  • Take a journey through London's West End like never before. Stroll past famous theatres singing your heart out (out loud, that is) to show tunes that have graced the stages from over the years.
  • This brewery in south-east London makes some truly fine beers. Find out how, why and – crucially – what they taste like at this event, hosted by the brewers and founders.
  • Play at being Willy Wonka for a day as you learn how to make your own artisan chocolate from the experts. You'll be taught chocolate-piping and tasting notes, before taking your beautiful bars home.
  • Space-based, massive multiplayer game EVE takes over Indigo at the O2 arena for the grand finale of its Invasion World Tour – an epic player-versus-player tournament followed by a party.
  • Caffeinate yourself for the multi-round, elimination tournament of competitive coffee making, which pits the world’s best AeroPressers against each other in the best-smelling contest on earth.
  • The annual Russian film festival returns to ODEON Leicester Square for a week-long exploration of cinema that facilitates European collaboration with the country, plus distribution of its movies.
  • BOXPARK Wembley hosts a Sneaker Festival to show off the best in trainers, clothing and street food. Buy a stall to sell your previously loved crepes or browse for a fresh new pair.
  • Two iconic queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race dissect each episode on their podcast. Now Alaska and Willam are hosting it live at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire – expect hilarious commentary and gossip galore.
  • The juniper obsessives behind Gin Foundry open a bar, tasting room and bottle shop in Notting Hill for a week of themed tastings and events, before releasing their liquid advent calendar.
  • We all know by now that knitting is both useful and cool, so learn how to do it at this fun and friendly free session. It's open to everyone, and food and drink are available from the venue.
  • Emerging female poets, comedians, actors and musicians take to the stage at Strongroom Bar & Kitchen for a free-entry open mic night. Get there early for a spot on the sofa.
  • Strut through Soho with pop classics on your headphones and drag queen guide Ms Christina Draguleira, who’ll dish out showbiz secrets from the area that may or may not be accurate.
  • 2019’s upgrade on Fifty Shades was Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women, a non-fiction tale of love and lust instantly hailed as a feminist classic. She reveals the backstory to the Guardian’s Hadley Freeman.
  • Top Nigerian comedian AY heads up a side-splitting line comedy line-up at The Lighthouse Theatre, Camberwell – also one of London’s hidden gems of Art Deco architecture.
  • A pop-up clothes swap with a difference: you can forget about money, vouchers, tokens, labels or disappointments, because the only rule is that you have to try everything on before you take it.
  • Hackney Wick’s prime craft brewers throw open the doors of Mick’s Garage for their first festival of beer, brewery tours, crafts and workshops, plus live music and DJs all day and into the night.
  • Over 40 stalls showcase African arts and crafts, jewellery, skincare, food and more. Get there at 12pm for a film screening on the politics and history of African fabrics, plus a director Q&A.
  • At this Whitechapel day festival, chocolate means more than a sweet treat. Expect holistic massages, insights from a chocolate shaman, orgasmic cacao breathing, sound healing and cacao sorcery. Wow.
  • Dusty Knuckle is known for baking incredible bread, but they’re also masters at making awesome pasta, as you’ll see at these newly launched workshops where you’ll make and eat loads of the stuff.
  • The latest of London’s daytime, conscious clubbing events takes place at The Old Baths in Hackney Wick. Talking and using phones is forbidden – just feel the music and improvise a dance.
  • It’s been almost four years since our beloved Bowie passed away. Honour the legendary Starman on a walking tour of his native Brixton, featuring anecdotes and song renditions performed en route.
  • There's a lot more to Japan's national tipple than you might think. This session will debunk sake myths, teach you the customs behind it and allow you to taste six different styles of the good stuff.
  • Snap truly memorable pics of central London's people, places and architecture like a pro, as a photography tutor shows you the tips and tricks you need to capture these vibrant areas on camera.
  • Be the envy of your foodie friends when they find out you can make incredible sushi from this masterclass. You'll work through maki, ikura and other faves, with a bento box to take home.
  • The four-stringed wonder that is the ukulele is a versatile instrument. Learn how to play much-loved songs on it in just 90 minutes from a few basic chords and – if you like – singing to accompany.
