Three things you won't want to miss in London this Thursday

Alexandra Sims

1. Facebook's first ever real life gallery opens today. Head along to 'Facebook's Gallery of Groups' and get to know six of the quirkiest groups from the site at this IRL exhibition, including a Quidditch community, a gang of 'very old skateboarders', sausage dog lovers, Rock Art fanatics and Panini sticker collectors. Entry is free from 10am at the Gallery at Oxo Tower Wharf. 

2. Visit the Empathy Museum's latest exhibit 'A Mile in my Shoes: Migration', which brings together 20 audio stories from migrants and refugees who’ve made London their home, giving them a platform to tell their stories. The immersive display opens today at Lambeth's Migration Museum. Entry is free from 11am. 

3. In April 1913 two suffragettes climbed to the top of the Monument to the Great Fire of London and showered ‘Votes for Women’ flyers onto the crowds below. Head there at 7:15pm and walk up the 311 steps to the top to hear Dr Helen Pankhurst, the great- granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, and historian Dr Matt Green discuss this Monument-al moment. Tickets are £20.
