October on What To Do

Find calm with accessible meditation, learn from a Bake Off legend or hit Halloween in style – it’s all happening on What To Do this October!

We’re welcoming back favourites in LOUQ and DJ Jeff, meeting new ones in Zoolab and Jane Beedle, while marking significant dates in the calendar, every week via our extraordinary experiences.

What To Do is free to people who access care and support. Each week we host a different session facilitated by an expert to bring fun, friends and inspiration to your home.




Here’s what to look forward to in October…
