Christmas Lates at the Charles Dickens Museum

This sounds so very quaint, lovely and storybook Christmas! The Charles Dickens Museum is hosting an exclusive evening this Thursday where you have the opportunity to explore Dickens’s home as it’s all decorated traditionally for Christmas. There will be late night carols, readings and time to enjoy their candlelight bar with a Dickensian tipple or two. What a perfect Christmas night!

A Funk, Soul & Indie Xmas

Thinking of a funkier, soulful Christmas? Then look no further than the aptly named ‘A Funk, Soul & Indie Xmas‘ where you can dance your Friday night away to your festive faves! Think James Brown, Darlene Love, The Supremes, The Waitresses, Clarence Carter, Chuck Berry, The Ronettes and many more!

Club Mexicana at Pamela Bar

Need to prep your stomach for the Big-C then head on down to Pamela Bar in Dalston this week where the awesome Club Mexicana bring their year long residency to a close. You’ll want to be there this Wednesday as they’re hosting an all-you-can-eat taco feast! Put on your stretchiest pants and make a move sharpish!

Christmas in Covent Garden

You’ve never seen Covent Garden quite like this! Book yourself on to the two hour tour this Saturday to learn about Covent Garden’s history, architecture and comedy. This is a lively and quirky experience so check in your boring historical tour ideas and learn about the hilarious and bizarre back-stories of some of London’s most famous landmarks!

Football Christmas Market

A Christmas market with a difference, for the avid football fan in your life, Six Yard Box is hosting a vintage football market this Thursday. And if all the footy paraphernalia gets too much for you they have plenty of mulled tipples to enjoy along the way.

Have a great week guys and Merry Christmas from the Smudged Lipstick team!
