Looking for something to do this weekend? This is your definitive guide which will come every week, telling you what’s happening this weekend. As you know, this can range from one off events, long running events, or just cool places or good clubs to visit.
Let’s begin with something just a little bit different, Night Tales Tokyo Nights at the Red Market, which is running every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until Saturday 19th December.
“Night Tales have taken inspiration from some of Tokyo’s best restaurants and cocktail bars, local markets and famous districts to deliver a real and authentic interpretation of the city. Tokyo Nights will take you on a tour of the buzzing metropolitan city and touch on scenes from Old Japan.”
Night Tales isn’t strictly ticketed, you can just turn up and pay on the door. However, if you want to guarantee entry and queue jump, they have a limited number of tickets available online for each night.

For a sampling of food, we have Little Feast taking place near Goldhawk Road underground station. This event is free, however you will need to register. It will be running Friday, Saturday and Sunday with different opening and closing times per day.
“The Yard will serve up treats from Sticky Beak slow roasted Vietnamese pork, Moroccan Lamb or melt in the mouth/cider braised beef cheeks. Feed me Primal will go paleo on us, Cheeky Burger are preparing a Wagyu Burger not to be missed, Redneck Smokehouse will be cooking authentic Brisket which falls away like butter, Butter & Scotch will be doing waffles, cream and melted chocolate or you can dig into Poptata’s fresh hand-cut fries served with their mouthwatering signature dips.”

For some comedy to lighten up the dreary autumn, we have the Chortle Comedy Book Festival.
“David Baddiel, Nicholas Parsons, Isy Suttie, Phill Jupitus, Jon Holmes and Bob Servant are among the names appearing at this year’s Chortle Comedy Book Festival.”
Taking place at Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre, this is sure to have something for everyone with an appreciation for comedy this Saturday and Sunday.
You can see a full run down of the comedians appearing, as well as the ticket prices and times, here.
For a selection of music, we have the Clapham Oxjam Music festival, taking place this Saturday at various places in Clapham.
“Oxjam Clapham is back for 2015! This year a series of selective venues in Clapham will open their doors to raise money for Oxfam on November 7th, 2015. Showcasing the very best up and coming talents, artists have been invited to play across 8 venues, including Clapham Picture House, Omnibus Clapham, The Belle Vue, The Falcon (Clapham North), Stane Street Syndicate, The Phoenix, The Railway and The Bread and Roses – each will feature multiple artists!”
The big event this weekend is, of course, Bonfire Night. While it’s technically Bonfire Night on Thursday, plenty of celebrations will be taking place this weekend. There are a ton of fireworks nights taking place across London, so to find your local one, simply head here or here.
Sadly, not much is happening in the metal world this weekend. I guess after Deathcrusher at the London Forum last weekend, no one wanted to follow that one up. 😉
However, we do have the weekly appearance of The Camden Rocks Club at the Underworld (more info here), as well as Slimelight (more info here) as well as old standy Crobar for something a bit more chilled.
No matter what you do this Bonfire weekend, I hope you all have a happy and safe one.
