Put your money away! Here are the week’s best free events

Memorial. A Tribute to Taxidermy

If you’re a fan of both cute animals and all things macabre, you’ll probably enjoy this exhibition by ethical taxidermist Jazmine Miles-Long. She aims to challenge perceptions of the art by recreating historic works from the Horniman’s collection to explore the process of taxidermy. She even makes the porcelain backdrops and cases themselves. Horniman Museum. Forest Hill Overground. Sat Oct 22-May 2 2017.


Seventeen artists unleash their anger in this exhibition about the act of protest. Using art to question the status quo, their works engage with current campaigns around Black Lives Matter, LGBT rights and the Syrian refugee crisis. Victoria Miro. Tube: Angel. Until Nov 5.

Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered

Prepare to be consumed by nostalgia at this exhibition of iconic board games from the V&A’s collection. You can even get involved with a throwback game or two yourself. V&A Museum of Childhood. Tube: Bethnal Green. Until Apr 23 2017.

Let's Party! The History, Philosophy and Politics of Fun

What’s more fun than a party? A lecture discussing whether there’s a universal theory of partying, of course! It’s part of King’s College’s Arts & Humanities festival. KCL Strand Campus. Tube: Temple. Wed Oct 19, 6.30pm-8pm.

House of Vans present #saveourculture

It’s nearly two months since Fabric was forced to close by Islington Council. While we wait to see if the club wins its appeal, look back at the good times at this exhibition of photography from the venue’s history. House of Vans. Tube: Lambeth North. Sat Oct 21-Sun Oct 22.
