Things to do today in London: Friday September 20 2019

Angela Hui

Do a Rebecca Black (remember her, anyone?) and get down on Friday. Fill the day and night with partying, partying, yeah! Or, simply get involved in one of these five unmissable things to do today in London.

1. The Moth Mainstage

See a live recording of The Moth podcast. Five storytellers take the main stage of the atmospheric Union Chapel to share deep, meaningful conversations and stories about events that have happened in their lives.  
Union Chapel. Tube: Highbury & Islington. Doors open at 7pm, starts at 8pm.
Tickets from £24.75. Book here.

2. London Queer Fashion Show

Give the constructs of men’s and women’s clothing the finger and see an all-inclusive catwalk show like no other. The London Queer Fashion Shows invites more than a hundred models of all sizes, sexualities, genders and abilities to strut down the runway in show-stopping gender-fluid outfits made by LGBTQ+ designers.

3. ‘The Farewell’

Be one of the first to see the UK release of Asian-American comedy-drama ‘The Farewell’. This story is about a loving Chinese family living far apart, nodding to all the intricacies of immigrant identity and family politics. It’s 2019’s sweetest watch.
Various London venues. Prices vary. Find a cinema here.

4. London Cartonera Book Festival

Head to the first-ever Cartonera Book Festival. Cartonera is a colourful South American publishing phenomenon that creates books from old cardboard, preventing them from otherwise gone to waste. Find out how to make these rainbow

5. Face to Face with German Talent: ‘The German Film Weekend’
