5 Exciting Things To Eat & Do In September

Mourn London’s non-existent summer by embracing autumn at these fun spots.

Your summer wasn’t the kind of Tuscany-esque Pinterest board that left everyone wondering if you have a sugar daddy, like you had hoped. Instead it was filled with too many “cosy nights in” and a lot more face time with your hoodie than you would have liked. Yes, summer in London was a disappointment. But September is a new month, a new season, and a chance to convince yourself that you’re more of an autumn person anyway. Get involved with these 5 exciting things that are happening in London this month.

If listening to podcasts is your new personality trait, firstly, just stop. Secondly, book a ticket to the London Podcast Festival where you can watch the conversations live from 7th to 17th September. Live showings include Two Two’s Podcast, Jameela Jamil, Masala Podcast, and more. It’s also less than a 10-minute walk to Dim Sum & Duck for some excellent post-show dim sum.

People think you’re still in Greece, staring out onto the beach, cocktail in hand. The truth is your Ryanair flight got cancelled and you’ve been in London trying to figure out how to make your re-entry into society. We’ve got it. The best Malaysian spot in London is now open after chef Normah’s summer break, so post a picture of the excellent beef rendang on your Story. If you don’t add the caption “she’s back, bitches”, you should just go back to pretending you’re in Greece.

Apparently one Arcade Food Hall just isn’t enough for the Nashville fried chicken-craving people of London. The second location is on the first floor of Battersea Power Station and has 13 stalls to choose from, including much-loved US-inspired burger spot Manna, as well as Bao and other big-name spots. Make a Saturday of it by exploring the area (walks around Battersea Park encouraged), before grabbing a table.
