7 Sensational Events In London This Autumn

The UnderTheDoormat guide to all the best things to do in London this autumn.


The leaves are turning brown, the scarves are out of hibernation and every second store is suddenly themed “spooky”. Autumn is well and truly here, and all anyone wants to do is curl up with a cup of hot chocolate by the roaring fireplace (or closest radiator/portable heater).

For those who wish to actually leave the house (in this cosy weather?!) then we have you sorted with the best events in London this autumn. Grab a cuppa and your planner before diving into a season full of wine, music, fireworks and more wine.

Rivoli Pop-Up Cinema 

For one week only the stunning Rivoli Theatre is turning into a cinema showing classic horror favourites such as Nightmare On Elm Street and The Shining. Walls are draped in red velvet and chandeliers hang from the ceilings for a beautifully atmospheric evening. Drinks are available inside the venue as well as popcorn and hotdogs for an authentic movie experience. This venue is perfect for date nights or just something a little different for an autumn evening.
