Here at #Teamcoco, we are all about the experience. From stunning immersive design to Nordic music and film and the melange of circus and noir that is the Festival of the Dead, we bring you our pick of the top three most unique events to experience this autumn.

For design fans: Decorex International, 6-9 October

The leading design show, Decorex International will make its debut at Olympia London this year. Offering a showcase of the very latest in high-end design, a speaking programme and curated exhibitions, the annual gathering attracts the leading names in luxury interiors from across the world.

New for 2019 is a boundary-pushing collaboration that takes visitors on a journey through a series of interconnecting spaces for an immersive encounter. Each area will be beautifully created by a selection of top international interior designers and overseen by one of the UK’s leading architects.

For Nordic culture fans: Ja Ja Ja festival, 8-9 November

Some of the biggest names in Nordic music and culture are set to perform at a new two-day event at London’s Roundhouse. Ja Ja Ja festival will feature new Nordic, a Nordic record label market, plus visual art exhibitions from Icelandic artists Örvar Smárason and Sindri Már Sigfússon. Film buffs should make sure they visit on the Saturday for documentaries curated by Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.

And for anyone wondering, ‘ja’ means ‘yes’ in most Nordic countries.
