Christmas is just around the corner, so for those of you eager to get into the spirit, we have Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. There are all kinds of Christmassy things to do here, all with varying ticket prices.

For example, we have Bar Ice, which is exactly what it says on the tin.

“Immersed in an arctic setting, enjoy the beautiful glow of the glistening ice. On arrival you’ll be handed a special winter cloak and gloves to keep you warm, then you’ll be served drinks in your own unique ice glass!”

There’s also an ice rink, circus shows, a magical ice kingdom and various rides. There is quite the selection available, beginning from Friday November 20th until Sunday January 3rd.

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is open from 10-10, so get more info and tickets here.

The South Bank Centre once again have something that sounds rather interesting, even if it probably will result in some very amusing bruises.

It is, of course, the Bump Roller Disco. You can attend this event pretty much when it suits you, as it runs from 11-11 from Friday 20th November until Saturday January 17th. Tickets are buy on entry, and cost £10 for an adult and £7.50 for a child.

For a bit of live music, Tiga is playing the Koko, Camden on Saturday 21st, and his live performance has is described by The Quietus – “Tiga’s live show hits home a sense of Sónar’s ability to offer an alternative ‘EDM’ experience with accessible and Pop-driven electronic music”.

For something a bit more chilled out, there is The Pipeline near Liverpool Street underground and mainline stations.

“Music, pool, pinball, darts, hot chicks, bums, punks, hipsters, bohemians, rockabilly greasers and regular joes. The Pipeline brings a much needed superiority to the missing Rock n’ Roll scene in East London.​

Come, pull up a stool, drink and be merry. With a backdrop of iconic rock photos, The Pipeline is a sanctuary for the brave and foolish. A bar furnished with the unusual and out of the ordinary drinks in town, supreme shots from the Nordic region (yes, some are pretty nasty), and the finest non-formulaic beer selection…”
