6 Kristina Kashtanova. PRIDE AT NIGHT AT THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT The Houses of Parliament ‘Pride at Night’ event on Friday 27 October includes tours that mark 50 years since the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 1967. The tours highlight the significant part played by LGBT people in Parliament as leaders, legislators, activists, lobbyists and monarchs. They explore the struggle for civil rights from universal condemnation and victimisation to the freedoms and rights enjoyed today. The journey begins in Westminster Hall with tales of medieval kings before passing through St Stephen’s Hall and into Central Lobby. As the tour moves into the Lords Chamber and the Commons Chamber, narratives from sovereigns and members of both Houses are brought to life through the art and architecture of the Palace of Westminster. These guided tour experiences take place in the company of Visitor Assistant Guides and are designed for adults aged 18 and over. Tickets should be booked in advance by calling 020 7219 4114. Each ticket includes a timed tour. SPECIAL AUTUMN SAILINGS FROM CITY CRUISES Big Ben, The London Eye, Tower Bridge and more – visitors can see the best views in London on a River Thames sightseeing cruise, with City Cruises’ boats departing every 40 minutes and tickets starting at £10. The all-weather sightseeing boats cruise up and down the River Thames every day of the week, all year round, from four piers in the heart of London: Westminster, London Eye, Tower, and Greenwich. There are a range of ticket types, from single trips to a hop-on, hop-off, 24,hour river pass. The Lord Mayor's Show has been a London Institution for over 800 years and marks the beginning of a new mayoral year. The pomp and pageantry of the Lord Mayor’s procession through the City of London culminates in a magnificent fireworks display across the river and there is no better vantage point to enjoy a clear view of the sky from the open river than on a 75 minute sailing with City Cruises. This year, the Lord Mayor’s Show is on Saturday 11 November. On 27 January, 1956, the first RCA hit single, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ by Elvis Presley made the UK charts. Elvis tribute artist Ben Thompson will perform as Elvis, singing his way up and down the Thames on 7, 21 and 28 October. In 2016, Ben won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest preliminary heat at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City and won 2nd Prize during the final in Memphis during Elvis Week 2016 in the Ultimate contest. You can also enjoy jazz and dinner on the Thames on Friday evenings and hear a top ChiJazz quintet, featuring a singer, perform a popular set of tunes from mainstream swing and Latin jazz. These special autumn sailings are in addition to daily Lunch Cruises, Afternoon Tea, the romantic Sundowner and Showboat Dinner Cruise.

Bloomsbury Festival 2016, Sing Out Store Street. Photo: Stuart Keegan. BALLETBOYZ PRESENT FOURTEEN DAYS The International Emmy Awardwinning, all-male dance company BalletBoyz return to Sadler’s Wells from 10-14 October for the world premiere of their new show Fourteen Days. The new work from the recent Rose d’Or winners has been created by four internationally celebrated choreographers, alongside four eminent and completely different composers. It comprises four short pieces, and will run alongside their previously acclaimed Fallen. Choreographers Javier De Frutos, Craig Revel Horwood, Iván Pérez and Christopher Wheeldon have teamed up with composers Scott Walker, Charlotte Harding, Joby Talbot and Keaton Henson, with each pair given just fourteen days to work with the ensemble to create the new pieces. Playing with the concept of balance and imbalance, the result is an exciting and varied programme of dance and music in BalletBoyz’s inimitable style, performed live musicians. 7 BLOOMSBURY FESTIVAL Bloomsbury Festival is to present a trailblazing programme of science, literature, performance, music, poetry, theatre, dance, discussion and reflection, shining a light on the radical imaginations, institutions and 11,000 residents of contemporary Bloomsbury. Taking place everywhere, from cultural centres and major institutions like Conway Hall and University College London to quirky indoor and outdoor spaces, over 150 mostly free events will pop-up across the lively cultural quarter. This year’s Festival’s theme is independence, a wide-ranging theme pertinent to Bloomsbury’s community: independent business and publishing, independent living and vitality, social, political, scientific and technical independence will be all be explored. 2017 also observes independent related anniversaries, the 70th anniversary of The Indian Independence Act, one-hundred years since the Russian Revolution and fifty years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, each of which features in this year’s programme. Bloomsbury Festival will take place from 18-22 October.
