No-one does fireworks quite like Ally Pally. It’s been letting off zingers, sending up skyrockets and spinning Catherine wheels into London’s heavens for over 150 years. As well as a German beer festival, laser show and fairground, this venue also boasts the best vistas over the capital – it’s definitely our pick when it comes to seeing Guy Fawkes Night in style.

The Tate Modern is hosting the first major exhibition of Anni Albers’ work in the UK. A female student at the radical Bauhaus art school, Albers was discouraged from taking up certain classes. She enrolled in the weaving workshop and made textiles her key form of expression. This exhibition illuminates the artist’s creative process and her engagement with art, architecture and design via more than 350 objects from exquisite small-scale ‘pictorial weavings’ to large wall-hangings and the textiles she designed for mass production. A must see.
