Wondering what to do now that summer is over? Fear not – culture vultures can get their fix thanks to a huge array of events, performances, concerts, installations and exhibitions taking place in London this Autumn. From the London Design Biennale to the revival of La Bayadère at The Royal Opera House, there’s absolutely no reason to stay at home this season. Here is our selection of the city’s must-see cultural offerings.
International designers from across the globe will gather at London’s Somerset House to present their response to the London Design Biennale’s theme, Emotional States. It is hoped the installations will investigate the impact design has on our lives, particularly the emotional responses it provokes.The UK entry has been curated by the Victoria and Albert Museum in collaboration with UK-based Forensic Architecture, which is documenting evidence of the genocide and enslavement perpetrated by Daesh against the Yazidis.
