October's biggest events
Budding horticulturalists who like plants with attitude should head to the Royal Botanical Gardens for a free exhibition of carnivorous greenery. The Calyx will be filled with 25,000 of the world’s hungriest, most clever plants.
There are more than 3 million items held in the Hermitage, so picking works for a single exhibition is a bit of a tough ask. This exhibition, focuses on works from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, showing the evolution from impressionism to modernism.
For next year's big summer exhibition, the MCA is presenting an exhibition of mostly black-and-white photos by South African photographer David Goldblatt. His images have traced the changing face of South Africa from the start of apartheid through to 1991, when it was dismantled.
