There are 8 million of us living in London and Battersea Art Centre have decided to try and bring us a bit closer together. Inspired by the success of the 1-on-1 Festival in 2010 and 2011, they’re putting on London Stories (until Sept 28), which promises a whole host of unforgettable and intimate experiences. Sit in a candlelit room paired with different members of the audience throughout the night and watch as a storyteller shares their funny, bizarre, tragic, moving life experiences. With Londoners of all backgrounds and ages telling their tales throughout the festival, it’ll be good practice for connecting with your fellow city-dwellers. Ally Swadling
