Say hello to the best events and pop-ups coming to London this Autumn…
Hot on the heels of this summer’s relentless heatwave, autumn is looking pretty good to us right now.
The golden season hits the sweet spot between constant upper lip sweat and covering up all your best outfits with a huge coat. It’s the yearly consumption time of the pumpkin-flavoured-just-about-everything. It’s the perfect time to go on long, sun-dappled walks. And those hearty, seasonal recipes taste pretty damn good, too.
However, our favourite thing about those post-summer months is the wealth of picturesque Autumn-themed events that hit the capital in celebration of the changing season.
Forget the usual pumpkin carving parties and seasonal food tastings: we’ve rounded up the best (and most niche) Autumnal-themed events happening in London in 2019.
And don’t worry: we’ll keep adding to the list as the year goes on, in a bid to ensure maximum seasonal fun for all.
From the end of September, East London rooftop venue Skylight will be celebrating the changing of the seasons with a gorgeously golden makeover.
For the décor, think a flurry of russet tones, “mellow fruitfulness” and hay-bales. The menu, meanwhile, will be filled with apple ciders and warming spiced cocktails. Cosy blankets, heaters and cushions will be scattered across the rooftop bar (ideal for shorter days and cooler nights). And, instead of summer staples like croquet, guests can try their luck with a number of autumnal activities: think throwing horseshoes and playing Pumpkin Draughts, to name just two.
