Things to do in London this weekend: 15 - 17 October
From a chance to taste the world's first flavour rainbow to an immersive art installation brimming with magical bubbles, here’s what not to miss this weekend.
London’s Royal Docks is celebrating its history as a port of access to the world with a two-week programme of cultural events spanning visual arts, theatre, live music and family activities. Highlights include an interactive installation being pitched as the world’s first flavour rainbow created by champions of playful multi-sensory experiences Bompas and Parr. Through it, the public can sample tastes associated with the area’s past, including coffee, sugar and spices.
A second highlight not to be missed is Arrival, an immersive family theatre spectacle directed by Matthew Dunster (2:22 A Ghost Story, Hangmen) based on the stories of workers and immigrants arriving in the UK via the Royal Docks.
