As the nights draw in it can be hard to find an event enticing enough to warrant leaving home comforts for, but we think that this selection of exciting events should do exactly that! With film screenings, haunted train rides and gardening tips to choose from, the big question is which one takes your fancy?

Why not let us know in the comments below if you are going to attend any of these events or if there is another event you’re going to that you think other people would like to know about. 

Wherever you go and whatever you do, we’d love it if you could write a review about the places you visit. From venues to roadside service stations, and cafes to corner shops, the information you share could help others nearby decide where to visit.
