This week's culture fix is bound to get you in the Christmas spirit. We're sharing our top picks on where to feast, drink and shop. London has some great festive offerings, we're really spoilt for choice. The only problem is trying to choose which ones to go to.
Christmas feast... with a twist brought to you by Slap Ya Papa. The ultimate House Party is at St. Nick's gaff and is sure to get your Christmas vibe on. We're told he is throwing one hell of a party. There will be singing waitresses, the best of communal dining, foot stompin’ live music and lip smackin’ flavours from the deep south. Served up by the charmingly playful characters that make up Nick’s entourage. A joyful mishmash of the dilapidated bohemia of the deep south meets Vaudeville strip clubs, expect secret twinkling absinthe bars, chimneys like you’ve never seen them before and, of course, Nicky’s little grotto.

Pop into.....The night before Christmas afternoon tea-party at Sketch Mayfair. I have always loved Sketch for it's creativity and gorgeous interiors and now they've gone all festive on us in the most magical way. Each room has had a festive makeover by artists, designers and florists; representing a chapter of Sketch’s Christmas tale. Even the iconic pod loos have been transformed with snow covered shrubs. To add to the festive spirit there’ll be live choirs and carollers performing every afternoon. For more information and tickets click here
Shop..... at the The London Illustration Fair. I'm excited about this one and I'm sure you will want to put this in your diary. There will be over 65 of the world’s hottest emerging illustrators, designers, print makers and publishers, so you'll be sure to get some inspiration to fill those Christmas stockings. There's going to be workshops, talks, performances, DJs and a fully stocked winter bar. So not only can you pick up a great gift but you also get to have fun whilst doing it. I would say this is the perfect way to do your Chrissy shopping. For more details click here
