If you’re making the international relocation to London by October, then once your Relocation agent has helped you find and settle into your new apartment, the city has a lot in store for you for the rest of the month. This isn’t an exhaustive list for a city this size, but some that are noteworthy.

First of all, following in the footsteps of the States’ celebration during February, the UK observes Black History Month throughout October. Where cultural celebrations go, this is also the month for Diwali, the festival of lights. Diwali on the Square will be held in Trafalgar Square on 16 October.

Also coming up:

1 Oct – Heroes Run
2 Oct – Hampshire Baby & Toddler Show
2 Oct – Waggie Walks
3-17 Oct – London Restaurant Festival
5 Oct – Debbie Wingham Fashion Show
9 Oct – Walk the Test Way for Honeypot!
10-16 Oct –  Chocolate Week
16 Oct – Clapham Common Series (run)
23 Oct – Chicago Bears vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium
30 Oct – Great South Run
31 Oct – A Night with the Chefs at Beaulieu

And, being the month of October, there are obviously all sort of ghoulish goodies taking place all over town in the spirit of HALLOWEEN! Americans moving here are especially fanatic about holding onto this North American custom, so I’m pleased to say that each year I’ve lived here I’ve seen Halloween’s presence grow…probably as the expat culture in this city grows. I’ll reserve my next post especially for those Halloween events. In the meantime, our London Relocation agents might know of some other fun happenings coming up just in time for your London move!
