We’ve got a whole variety of events going on in London this week, so whether you’ve been counting down the days till LFW or if your idea of fashion is simply wearing a different t-shirt than the day before, we’ve got you covered for fun London events to check out.

Carnaby Street Fashion Week
Head over to oh-so-fashionable Carnaby Street this London Fashion Week for a series of fashion and beauty experiences from a whole host of brands and restaurants. Located near the LFW hub in Brewer Street, Carnaby Street is the place to be for all your trendy needs. From September 16th – 20th September, Carnaby’s Pamper-van will be offering complimentary fashion and beauty services, including a braid bar where London’s hottest braiders will instantly re-fresh your look, a visit from Coulour Riot Nails whose creative artists will give you fabulous pop art nails, a brow masterclass and touch-up service by brow experts Benefit, and much more.

DIY Art Market
The DIY Art Market is a celebration of London’s independent publishers and artists. The works of over 60 artists will be showcased over the weekend event and visitors will have ample opportunity to discover and purchase an eclectic range of original items direct from the makers. Items for sale will include art prints, ceramics, zines & independent publications, illustrations, photography, jewellery, sewn items, comics, custom tees, homemade cassettes, screen prints, records, and artist books. This market is the perfect place to pick up a priceless, one-of-a-kind work, and who knows, maybe you can get all your early Christmas shopping done here too. Optimistic maybe, but you’re sure to feel inspired by these beautiful handcrafted goods.


 
DIY Art Market will take place at Copeland Gallery, 133 Copeland Road, SE15 3SN on September 17th from 11am – 6pm. Entrance is free.
 

Lairy Tales and Crappy Ever Afters
 Unruly Scrumptious and Lady Baps are a female comedy duo who wrangle words and form. They play with ideas of narcissism and anxiety and they also want to let everyone know that they have a mild nut allergy as well. Mixing poetry, song, film, sketches and improv with a cavalcade of comedy characters, Unruly Baps brings you a series of fairytale subversions. Join a raunchy Grandma from Red Riding Hood, a northern Cinderella and a lecherous Rumpelstiltskin for an hour of mayhem, mirth, and scurrilous wordplay.


 Lairy Tales and Crappy Ever Afters will take place at Etcetera Theatre, 265 Camden High Street, London NW1 7BU on September 17th at 9:30pm. Tickets are £12 and can be booked online.
 

Roots and Shoots - London Open House
As part of Open House London, one of the city’s newest and greenest buildings, the Natural Roots Building at Lambeth charity Roots and Shoots, will be throwing open its doors to the public on September 18th. This is a rare occasion to see a beautiful inner city oasis and to experience the wonderful, award-winning half-acre of wild garden that sits alongside this fantastic new building. Designed by Hudson Architects of Norwich, the Natural Roots Building is a new London treasure that should be seen first-hand.


 
Roots and Shoots is located at Walnut Tree Walk, London SE11 6DN. Open Sunday 18th September 2016 from 12-4pm. Admission free.
 
The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Ron Howard, this is the first fully-authorised feature film about The Beatles since the band’s breakup in 1970. This new documentary film traces the band’s phenomenal early career and their unprecedented success. From their early days playing small clubs in Liverpool to sell-out world tours, this highly anticipated film gives audiences never-before-seen insight into the dynamics of the Fab Four and the origins of Beatlemania.
