18th – 21st October: Black Sabbath – The Ballet

Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Rosebery Ave, London EC1R 4TN

Price: From £15

This is ballet with a difference. Instead of classical whimsy, you’ll be faced with dancing to the head-banging, foot-stomping music of Black Sabbath. The Birmingham Royal Ballet are bringing this unusual experience to London’s Sadler’s Wells for three nights only, so be quick before you miss it.

Eat At:

The Flask

77 Highgate W Hill, London N6 6BU

Autumn has finally hit and with it has brought those much-loved auburn leaves and bright blue skies. What better way to enjoy that than by stomping across Hampstead Heath this Sunday? After all that walking, you’ll be peckish and that’s where The Flask steps in. With al fresco seating aplenty, you’ll be able to eat your Sunday roast in the sunshine should you choose, or huddle up beside the fires inside.

Drink In:

The Bar With No Name

69 Colebrooke Row, N1 8AA

This unassuming cocktail bar is hidden away on a corner just behind Essex Road. While from the outside it’s incredibly modest, inside it packs a punch. There’s live piano on Wednesdays and Sundays, and the knowledgeable staff serve up classics alongside punchy numbers like the Rouge, which marries absinthe, vodka and madeira wine.
