Just because Halloween is finito for another year it doesn’t mean the party has to stop. November is packed to the rafters with fun things to do, so bin the fake blood and withered pumpkins, and lift your spirits with one of these awesome events. Fancy a bottomless brunch in a ball pit? An edible art exhibition? A bank heist? DesignMyNight have highlighted the best events coming up this November, and you’d be crazy to miss a single one.
1. Ballie Ballerson Bottomless Brunch - London
Did someone say ‘unlimited pizza and prosecco...in a ball pit cocktail bar’? It might sound like it’s made up, but East London’s Ballie Ballerson is all too real. Grab your mates and join them for their bottomless brunch that consists of unlimited pizza and bubbly for two hours and free rein in their larger-than-life adult playpen.
2. Day Of The Dead at The Vaults - London
Descend into the labyrinthine world of Wahaca’s Day of the Dead celebration this November and wind your way through a Mayan jungle and experience a re-creation of Oaxaca’s Cemetery Panteon General. Offering something a little bit different, you’ll feast on Wahaca’s authentic Mexican treats and you’ll gain a greater understanding of yourself by finding your Mayan reincarnation. Featuring performances of music, song and poetry, remember those who have passed by celebrating life (and dancing your pretty lil’ candy skull off).
3. Thanksgiving At The Breakfast Club - London
Be transported to the US of A this November at The Breakfast Club’s Thanksgiving cookout, where you’ll dine on all the old classics with a Breakfast Club twist. Think bacon and beer roasted turkey, spiralized sweet potato, and beetroot and zucchini with a pretzel crumb topping. It’s going to be a traditional Thanksgiving dinner like no other, so throw on your best pair of elasticated pants.
4. Smith & Sinclair Flavour Gallery - London
Connoisseurs of boozy confectionary, this November Smith & Sinclair are taking their brand of outlandish outings to The Hoxton Basement. They’ll be bringing the exhibition walls down with this art show designed to challenge everything you thought you knew about traditional galleries. The Flavour Gallery invites you to touch tastes, suck on scents and consume art in ways never before imagined. Teaming up with liquor experts Lanique, and leading soft drink brand Firefly; you’ll have a bespoke range of cocktails and mocktails to slurp on when you visit.
5. Supa Dupa Fly Mansion Party - Brighton
Party it up at the Proud Country House this month with the best in hip-hop and R’n’B from the Supa Dupa Fly DJs and Kiss 100’s Big Ted. Featuring sets from Radio 1Xtra’s Emily Rawson and Kisstory’s Matchstick, there’ll be no lack of 90s and 00s jams to keep you dancing ‘til the early hours. For those not based in Brighton, there will be return coaches leaving from North, South, East and West London, and with multiple rooms of music to explore, huge sound systems and great drinks, there’s no end of reasons to check it out.
6. Midnight Apothecary Bonfire Special - London
You know what you need to do this November? You need to sip on campfire cocktails while toasting marshmallows. Agreed? Join Midnight Apothecary at a secret rooftop on the 4th for a special Bonfire night extravaganza. There’s gonna be apple bobbing, and if you have the nerve, you can descend into the underground chamber for a guided tour on the night. With tickets from just £5, it’s a no-brainer.
7. Networking Lunch With A Hostage Negotiator - Manchester
Learn about the power of listening and communicating from the best in the business at this unique networking opportunity, led by former head of the Greater Manchester Police’s Hostage Negotiation Unit. Over the course of this lunchtime session, an FBI-trained kidnap specialist will teach you the value of effective communication in instances where life and death are on the line. Covering everything from motivating your team to managing conflict, it’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
8. Eleanor Conway’s Walk Of Shame - Cardiff
Blunt, brazen and insatiably funny, Eleanor Conway is bringing her stand-up show to Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena this month, and you have to go. Formerly a deviant party girl, Walk Of Shame details Eleanor’s adventures around the world, and it’s about more than just a few too many fishbowls at a Full Moon party. From run-ins with Triads to making hardcore porn, her jokes shine a light on everything from sobriety and addiction to Tinder and sambuca shots.
9. Digbeth Dining Club - Birmingham
With drinks, DJs and the crème de la crème of Birmingham’s street dining scene, the Digbeth Dining Club is a must visit for all foodies. Hosted in an industrial spot in Digbeth, you can find everything from pizza to pancakes, including winner of ‘Best Burger’ at the British Street Food Awards, The Flying Cow. Open ‘til late, it’s a cool, culinary treat for those looking for something a little different on a Friday night.
10. LOOT - London
Step out of your comfort zone and into some high-octane, adrenaline-pumping immersive theatre this November, courtesy of CoLab Factory. Take on one of London’s most advanced vaults as you race through laser-protected corridors and over pressure-sensitive floors. Avoid CCTV and tackle the most dangerous vault keeper in the city to pull off the biggest heist in London.
