In London, Fire Hazard has retreated to the tunnels for Riotball, a cross between football, basketball, netball and volleyball. It’s played with a giant glow-in-the-dark ball and glowing wristbands – and yes, as that would suggest, it’s played in the dark. 20 November, under London Bridge; tickets £12.
And in Manchester, Larkin’ About are sticking outdoors with some specially-designed seasonal games, including Hide the Guy (assist your fellow Catholics in hiding Guy Fawkes from King James’ Guards) and Vee Uye’s game 7:Candles:Mcr, which will play out simultaneously in the city centre and on Twitter, asking you to illuminate some gloomy corners of the city. Free, from 6pm in the greenroom bar.
