Now that the capital is making the rapid descent towards Christmas, you’ve got the option of spending your weekends getting in the spirit of it all – Santacon anyone?
London’s independent theatre scene gets the much deserved spotlight this weekend with two events showcasing the finest in new writing, while the original afrobeats sound takes over East London on Friday, leaving Sunday for good eats and drinks galore…
This weekend sees the Southbank Centre declare the arrival of winter with its annual festival dedicated to all things Chrismassy. While those not quite ready to get into the spirit of it all can enjoy a street photography workshop in the East, a flick about graffiti writers, fried chicken in Brixton and a unusual dedication to the beauty of dancing on ice.

Enjoy!
Hello, October – a month that always remind us it’s time to wrap up warm and vaguely consider what you might like for Christmas – but it’s also when the city crams in the last of the exciting events before the steady wind down toward December 25th.
We knew September wouldn’t fail us when it comes to delivering pure awesomeness in the form of events, fests and the like – and this weekend is no exception.
London’s gone a bit festival-mad this weekend – something’s gotta replace The Games? But you’ll be pleased to know you can sidestep the mud and poor sanitation for quality music, arts and cinema that should make your next few days quite entertaining.
We’re moving into the autumn season, with colder evenings signalling the end of what could only be described as one of the best summers the capital has ever seen.
