An Evening with Jack the Ripper
Are you fascinated by one of the most elusive serial killers of all time? Do you wonder what it would have been like trying to solve the crime in the paranoia of the 1880s? Well, here’s your chance. Apocalypse Events is bringing Whitechapel - Suspects, Lunatics and a Leather Apron to a secret location in London from 27th October onwards on selected dates. An immersive theatre event, it will give you the chance to be either police, vigilante or an impoverished Londoner during the reign of terror of the publicly named Jack the Ripper.

Zombie S.W.A.T Training London HQ
Another Apocalypse Events one - because these guys are good at what they do - how about fighting off a zombie hoard? Not for the faint hearted, this three and a half hour event will see you take up arms and get a sweat on trying to save yourself from a zombie apocalypse. It’s a busy event so make sure you book for it (it usually runs on Sundays) and rather than having a night of standing around interspersed with a bit of dancing, how about you get some exercise and work out that stress from your job?

The Home of Halloween
That’s what the London Dungeons are calling themselves, and to be honest, if you still haven’t managed to visit, then this is the time of year you want to make the effort. You’ll be transported back to 1873 and 50 Berkley Square where Florence Cook will be taking her last Seance. There’ll be supernatural disturbances galore and a great amount of fright for those lovers of halloween running from 1st October - 1st November.
You can book tickets here - they’ll sell out quick!
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Bronze is Back
If you were a nineties baby you may well have LOVED Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Well if you’re keen on good music and want to re-live those crazy crop-top trends then why not dress, Buffy-style, and get your slayer on at the Hackney Picture House. The event is this Friday the 28th October so don't miss out!
