Here we are again for another awesome instalment of 5 cool and fun date ideas for your week ahead!


Magic Lantern Festival

This one just sounds lovely, why would you not want to check it out?! Now running for it’s third year, the festival illuminates the Chiswick Gardens with an assortment of lanterns in every size and shape you can imagine! The gardens also host entertainment with food and drink a plenty and even has a Santa’s grotto and fairground rides! Gain massive sophisticated date points for this one!


House of Vans Presents: Chroma

Carrying on the theme of light-filled extravaganzas but now in a grittier, urban setting. If you don’t fancy heading out to Chiswick, choose instead to make your way to the Tunnel 1 Gallery in Waterloo. We highly recommend you check out House of Vans collaboration with Studio PSK to bring you immersive light and play installations where they’ve created an interactive show that’s a feast for all of your senses. And there’s a giant ball pit to boot. This sounds so cool. Free entry and it starts this Wednesday!


Pantomime: Cinderella

Oh no we didn’t! Oh yes we did! Panto season is here and so it would be wrong for us not include it in at least one of our compilations over the next few weeks. The Hackney Empire is hosting everyones favourite, Cinderella in the much-loved slapstick style. Grab your tickets here.


The Garmhaus Christmas Pop-Up Vintage Market

The Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen are hosting this year’s Garmhaus Christmas Pop-Up Vintage Market. Expect DJs, live art, bands, vintage clothes galore, Christmas cocktails and more! Free entry this Sunday!


The Illustration Fair

Just in case all the festive themed activities are already proving too much for you, head towards the Oxo Tower from Friday to Sunday to check out the brilliant London Illustration Fair. Feast on four floors of illustration, printmaking and design. The even have live and interactive games for you to throw yourself in to with a whole floor dedicated to them! Of course there will be a fully stocked…dare I say it…festive bar.

Have a brilliant week guys!
