Cool Events Column: Joe Lycett takes centre stage

Former BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave is excited with all the great events in October this year, such as Halloween, Oktoberfest and a star stand-up comedian.

It’s finally my favourite time of year! There is nothing better than getting out and about in October as there is always loads of stuff going on.

Plus, let’s face it, everyone is starting to get excited for Halloween, bonfire night and Christmas so there’s a real buzz in the air. Here are my top picks for this month…

The Stables MK is hosting the multi-award winning vocal group SONS OF PITCHES on October 7th as they tour their new show 100 Number One Hits.

Watch on in amazement as acapella mashups and medleys are performed by the group as they try to cover 100 songs in one evening.

Performing a huge variety of genres and artists, it will be a great night for everyone. Tickets are available from

If traditional Bavarian food, drink and music is more your kind of thing, then head down to the incredibly popular MK OKTOBERFEST at Campbell Park.

Held across the weekend of the 12th and 13th inside a huge bier tent, there will be authentic oompah bands, a large selection of beers and tasty German sausages.

Why not get a group of mates together and fill your laderhosen! Get your tickets from

MK Theatre is hosting one of my favourite comedians, JOE LYCETT, as he performs his brand new stand up show ’I’m about to lose control and I think Joe Lycett’ on the evening of the 28th.

You’ll recognise Joe from 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, his parking ticket escapades and QI, so prepare for a hilarious evening of witty observational comedy. Visit to book.

HALLOWEEN falls on a Wednesday this year, so pubs and bars everywhere will be hosting Halloween celebrations across the weekend of the 27th and 28th to mark the occasion.

Make sure you head to your local and have a spooktacular time with friends and family. Enjoy!
