Visit Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station, Circus Rd West, Nine Elms, SW8 5BN Open from Friday October 14

The building was decommissioned in 1983 and during the years that followed, several failed attempts were made to redevelop the site.

But now, almost 40 years after the lights were switched off, it has reopened as a glitzy hub of offices, flats, restaurants and shops.

To celebrate the public opening of the historic Power Station, a free ‘Festival of Power’, will take place on October 14-16 and October 22-23, with live performances and installations.

British Horror Film Festival

British Museum, Great Russell St, WC1B 3DG Saturday October 15 Tickets £13 to £21

As we’re coming into spooky season, it makes sense that a Horror Film Festival takes place this month.

This weekend, the 13th British Horror Film Festival will take place in the British Museum.

The evening begins with a selection of short films from around the UK and abroad, before a screening of the feature film ‘Feed Me’ from directors Adam Leader and Richard Oakes, which follows a man tormented by night tremors and depression after the death of his wife.

Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers hosted by BAFTA-winning actor Stuart Brennan.
