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

Ryoji Ikeda: ‘Test Pattern No 12’

If you loved video art exhibition ‘The Infinite Mix’, you’re in for a treat. 180 The Strand is playing host to more captivating art. One of the highlights? An immersive installation by Ryoji Ikeda that converts sound, music, photos and video into disorientating binary patterns around the room. Well worth queuing for. 180 The Strand. Tube: Temple. Until Dec 10.

Pimp Your Pumpkin

Get ready for Halloween at this family-friendly pumpkin party. You’ll be able to make a squash centrepiece, decorated with jewels and glitter, sure to be the prettiest on your patch. Register for the ticket ballot up to five days in advance at 2 Newburgh St. Tube: Oxford Circus. Mon Oct 23.

Opera Passion Day at St Pancras

What does St Pancras sound like? Normally it’s commuters tutting and wheely suitcases rolling. On Thursday, though, it’ll be vocals from The Royal Opera Chorus – with back-up from willing commuters. It’s to mark Opera Passion Day, taking place around the country. St Pancras. Thu Oct 19, 6.30pm.

A Wheelie Big Bounce

Anyone who’s woken up after a night of raving with legs aching liking they’ve been working out can vouch for the motivating power of drum ’n’ bass. Now it’s official: there’s a free D&B-soundtracked dance-fit class coming to London. Book a spot on Eventbrite. Lee Valley VeloPark. Tube: Stratford. Fri Oct 20, 7.30pm.
