Night Tales Since they had so much fun last time around, Night Tales are back, this time taking over the Red Market at Old Street with food from Patty & Bun, Pitt Cue, Voodoo Ray's and more, plus drinks from the guys at Background Bars. Oh yeah, and you can rent a private chalet, too.

Skate at Somerset House Sure, there are a bunch of ice rinks around London, but with the stunning Somerset House as a backdrop, world-class DJs, and Fortnum & Mason doing the food, this is a seriously heavy hitter.

Regent St Christmas Lights In case you hadn’t noticed, Regent and Oxford Streets are the center of the universe when it comes to shopping, but tonight they really take it up a notch when they switch on all those lights. Expect fireworks and A-list faces making appearances.
