London To Do List – 17-31 October

 

Unleashed Kopparberg | From Saturday, October 20 | Various Times | Free

Read more about this amazing (and FREE!) DIY events series by Kopparberg here.

Dina Martina: Moribund @ Soho Theatre | October 23-27 | 9.30pm | £10 – CLICK HERE FOR 50% OFF TICKETS!

Absolutely packed with ludicrous song and dance, overburdened costumes and wonderfully horrifying video, Dina Martina’s shows have become synonymous with jaw-dropping pathos and mind-blowing comedy. Unmissable, we say!

SCROTUM CLAMP @ Rhythm Factory | Wednesday, October 24 | 7.30pm | Free

We love the name of this band (which are described as ‘cabaret pantomime game-show punks’), just one of the four bands on the lineup for an ‘unapologetic riot of garage punk and surf silliness’.

White Mischief’s PHANTASMAGORIA Halloween Ball @ Scala | Saturday, October 27 | 9pm-4am | £29.99

Delightfully different multi art-form Halloween soiree. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Homotopia Liverpool / Council House Movie Star | From Tuesday, October 30 | Times Vary

Take a roadtrip to Homotopia Festival in Liverpool and discover this interactive romp.

FLANNEL SKIRTS AND SHORT SHIRTS! | Friday, October 19 | Free (£4 donation suggested)

Swedish Meatbrawl – London Rockin’ Rollers All Stars Vs. Stockholm Roller Derby @ Newham Leisure Centre | Saturday, October 20 | 4.30pm | Adult £12.50/Child £6.50
