Events in London – October 2018

October is a time autumn walks in the park, lamplit strolls along the river, or an evening meal and West End show. Or how about attending the Pearly Kings and Queens Festival, London Film Festival, or scary event at Halloween? You might hear some fireworks at the end of the month as Bonfire Night gets closer.
