What's on and where to go this weekend

By Kuba Shand-Baptiste on
  • EMBRACE THE COLD

    Winter is here. And while that usually means having to endure biting temperatures and rising heating bills, it also means that festive events are on the way. Marking the arrival of the one season Britain tends to get right, the Southbank Centre opens its Wintertime Festival this weekend. Whether your idea of fun is sipping on mulled wine, eating fondue (in a snow globe!) or slipping into a Finnish rooftop sauna, you'll be in for a treat.

  • BOOK NOW FOR LATER

    The English National Ballet are (as usual) hosting a rich programme of performances this season. Watch the timeless Romeo & Juliet at the Bristol Hippodrome from 21 November; A christmas classic – The Nutcracker from Novemer 29–January 06 at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton and December 13–January 06 at the London Coliseum; or check out an array of upcoming productions spanning the nation.

  • GIVE YOUR ROOM A MAKEOVER

    If your living room or office needs sprucing up, a new piece of art is a pretty fool-proof way of changing things up, without the hassle of trying to keep a plant alive. Lucky for you, the Contemporary Art Fair is coming to the Royal Windsor Racecourse this weekend, with pieces from £40-£4,000, depending on your budget. Tickets are £7 for adults.

  • EXAMINE YOUR ONLINE TRAIL

    This exhibition shows the impact technology has had on our lives and the world around us – from aid workers to your morning commute. It's equal parts interesting, informative and terrifying. This is the last weekend the exhibition is open, so what are you waiting for? 

  • See the best of Jewish LGBTQ+ film

    There are plenty of films to choose from at this year's 21st International Jewish Film Festival, but there are three LGBTQ+ stories in particular that are must-sees. Get tickets to the November 18 screening of The Cakemaker, a story of forbideen love between an Israeli businessman and a baker at London Picturehouse Central; watch The Fabulous Allan Carr at London JW3 on November 13, or check out the story of a largely forgotten hero –Wilfred Israel: The Essential Link at Manchester HOME on November 13.

  • John Davies 'Scarecrows', Turner Contemporary

     

    See John Davies' Ghosts

    John Davies's exhibition, My Ghosts opened at the Turner Contemporary in Margate yesterday, complete with haunting sculptures and portraits. What better time to ponder the fragility of the human body than in the wake of Halloween? Click here for tickets and more information.

    SEE PRINCE IN A NEW LIGHT

    Let's be honest, it's almost as hard to get bored of listening to Prince's impressive discography as it is to tire of looking at photographs of the late, great star. Steve Parke, the photographer behind Picturing Prince, is showcasing images of the Purple One at an exhibition under the same name  at Proud Galleries, ending on December 31st. You'd be silly to miss it. More info here

  • CHALLENGE REPRESENTATIONS OF WOMEN

    The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein wants you to question female subjectivity, drawing on myths, herself and even Nicki Minaj as a means of doing so. Join her for an evening of dance, music and "witch-bitch" ritual in Notorious at the Barbican from November 7th-11th. Get tickets and more information here.
