No plans this week? Here are a few team InStyle suggestions to get you started...
1. Veuve Clicquot Widow Series: 'ROOMS' by FKA Twigs
With a second round of ticket booking opening today at 3pm, the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series curated by none other than the incredibly talented singer/dancer/performance artist FKA Twigs, comes to London on the 27th and 28th October. Featuring performance art, set design, theatre, costume and dance, this original new performance and installation will give lucky guests a complete 360-degree immersive experience. No doubt it'll be breathtaking. Set an alarm for 3pm. Visit VeuveClicquotWidowSeries.co.uk for all ticket info.
2. Everybody's Rumshop
Hackney-based night Everybody's is bringing a slice of the Caribbean to east London this Saturday 22nd October with (and this is very exciting), a pop-up rum shop. Yes, really. Basing themselves in Homerton's Farley Macallan, Everybody's Rumshop will be creating up to six different punches (over 70 litres of rum punch in total, wow) for the night, following Caribbean traditions and flavoured with local Island rum and fruit from Ridley Road market. There will also be DJs spinning some authentic Island tunes. Check out Everybody's Facebook page for more details.

3. Yves Klein at The Tate Liverpool
Presenting around 40 major works including sculptures, photographs and pure-colour monochrome paintings, this exhibition opening on the 21st October at the Tate Liverpool celebrates the life and work of major post-war artist Yves Klein. From his bold use of colour to his undeniable influence over the art world, this collection features many works not yet seen in the UK, so yes, an absolute must for art fans. Tickets are £11. Visit Tate.org.uk for all information.
4. Black Mirror
The third series of Charlie Brooker's dystopian drama Black Mirror is due to drop on Netflix this Friday 21st October, and fans are more than a little excited. The series opener Nosedive (directed by Atonement’s Joe Wright) has been cited as a dark comedy, set in a world where it's inhabitants are scored out of five - an idea that very much echoes our own blurred relationship with social media in the modern age. 12 episodes have been ordered by Netflix, yet only 6 will be made available this weekend. Three guesses what we'll all be talking about this time next Monday...
5. Jagwar Ma
If you've never been lucky enough to see this Australian indie-dance trio live, then please, do yourselves a massive solid and pop on down to one of their UK shows this week. Kicking off in Glasgow on Thursday 20th October, these infectiously fuzzy-funk groovesters have a glorious back-catalogue made for getting down, plus new single Give Me A Reason is pure gold. If you are having a s*** month, a Jagwar Ma show will 100% make your life better. Fact. Visit TicketMaster.co.uk for info.
If, like us, you are absolutely crazy about dumplings, listen up. Beijing street food eatery Mamalan, founded by chef Ning Ma, has now opened it's doors in Shoreditch and boasts a menu jam-packed with dumpling yumminess. Think pork buns, king prawn and Chinese water chestnut boiled dumplings, and deliciously spicy chicken wings - perfect morsels for a tasty pre-drinks feed. Plus, the space is so Instagrammable, it hurts. See Mamalan.co.uk for info.

7. Cambridge Film Festival
Running from the 20th to the 27th October, the Cambridge Film Festival is actually the UK's third-longest running film festival, and always boasts a fantastically packed schedule of silver screen delights. Ken Loach's stirring Palme d'Or winning drama I, Daniel Blake will open proceedings (we've heard that lead actor Dave Johns will be in attendance) and with 148 features bulking out the 2016 programme, you are guaranteed to find something you like. See CambridgeFilmFestival.org for information.
8. The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined
In the newest exhibition to hit London's Barbican Centre, the more *ahem* vulgar side of fashion is explored, with pieces drawn from major public and private collections worldwide. Showcasing over 120 objects from designers such as Walter van Beirendonck, Chloé, Christian Dior and Pam Hogg, this ooh-er missus collection is an absolute must for those that like to push the boundaries of taste. Tickets start from £12. Visit Barbican.org.uk for details.
Well, what are you waiting for? Have a great week guys...
