INSIDE OUT FESTIVAL:
A huge number of events will take place on both university campuses and leading London venues throughout the week. The 2015 programme will include an eclectic mix of debates, performance, workshops, screenings, walks and concerts (many of them free). 19-24 October
RITUALS AND WITCHCRAFT:
A historic building survey at Knole, Kent enabled a very surprising revelation about the history of the house in the early 17th century. A series of symbols beneath the floorboards carved by the carpenters working at the house were intended to protect the building from possession by witches, demons and evil spirits. Further research showed that the symbols were related to James I, witch trials and the Gunpowder Plot. Museum of London, free, 1pm
Your own pumpkin, a lesson on how to carve it and a cocktail, bargain! £10 from 6-8pm or 8.30-10.30pm
PAUL CLUVER ESTATE WINE TASTING:
Paul Cluver Estate, situated in the cool Elgin valley, is a family-run vineyard that produces crisp, refreshing wine. Get along to Vivat Bacchus and give their superior grapes a try. £15, 7pm
ERICH MCELROY'S IMPERFECT GUIDE TO PICKING THE PERFECT PRESIDENT:
American comic Erich McElroy presents a brand new hour of stand-up. This time Erich explores why no other nation does politics with the same absurdity and insanity as the USA, and how with the right recipe (a pinch of God, a dash of freedom and a flatbed full of firearms) anyone can be President of the United States. Museum of Comedy, £8, 7pm
Revel in all things gin at Merchant House, Bank. Sip on a refreshing G&T as you learn about the history of gin, from its early origins right through to its growing popularity today. You'll also get to try four different tasters of the tipple. The Merchant House, £20, 7.30pm
LIVE JAZZ AND BLUES WITH TWO COURSE DINNER:
This October, head on down to Boisdale in Canary Wharf for your authentic fix of jazz or blues. With none other than Jools Holland as the venue's patron of music, it's packed full of some of the genres' greatest artists playing their hearts out. £24.50, 8pm
RIB NIGHT AND BLUES:
Enjoy some silky blues tunes performed in an intimate solo show by The Dirty Robbers front man, Oliver Darling. A huge stack of the kitchen's signature slow cooked beef and pork ribs are £10 on Monday. Music starts at 9.45pm, The Blues Kitchen, Camden, free entry.
