Our February 2017 highlights

Orchid Festival

There's an Indian theme to the 2017 edition of the Orchid Festival, returning for its 22nd year. There'll be sights and sounds of India, exotic floral creations, tours, workshops and late parties.

Kew Gardens , Kew Saturday February 4 2017 - Sunday March 5 2017

Where to watch the Super Bowl in London

It's the biggest sporting event – and usually the biggest telly event – on the American calendar, so be sure to catch the Super Bowl in London. Whether you're a die-hard NFL fan, a major sports fan or just a beer fan who welcomes any excuse for a late-night session, these are the places to soak up the Super Bowl in London. The game kicks off at 11pm UK time on February 5 2017 and is likely to last around four hours. It's quite a commitment, so make sure you pace yourself and last until at least half-time for the entertainment. And remember to check out more London events in February to keep you going throughout the month. We'll be updating this page nearer the time as events are announced.

Fare Healthy

Though perhaps not quite as thorough as a juice cleanse, this festival of food, fitness and wellbeing is sure to leave you feeling a whole lot healthier just by virtue of inspiration. 2016 sees stalls, talks, exercise sessions and demonstrations talking place, with names like Ella Mills, Skye Gyngell, Tart London, Tom Hunt and Olia Hercules on the bill.

Old Truman Brewery , Brick Lane Saturday February 4 2017 - Sunday February 5 2017

Late Night Opening at Sir John Soane's Museum

The first Tuesday of each month sees the museum open from 6pm-9pm for atmospheric, candlelit tours. They're always very busy and only the fist 200 people in the queue will have guaranteed entry. It's then a one-in-one-out affair until last entry at 8.30pm so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Frock Me! Vintage Fair

Frock Me! returns with some of the best vintage the capital has to offer. Catering to everyone from serious collectors to fashion enthusiasts, Chelsea Town Hall will be filled with over 50 stalls of vintage and designer clothing, accessories and jewellery. Expect swing coats, cashmere and enough flapper dresses to keep the cast of Downton happy. Hungry shoppers can also recharge at a nostalgic pop-up café.

After-school Club for Grown-ups at the Natural History Museum

Big kids rejoice, the sell-out After-school Club for Grown-ups at the Natural History Museum is back for another term. Explore the museum at night with a full range of activities to keep you (mostly) out of trouble, including face painting, t-shirt and mask making as well as a torch-lit trail in the dino gallery. And why not stay on for our amazing silent disco to round the night off in style. Tyrannerific.

David Hockney

Have we reached peak Hockney? The Royal Academy has granted him two shows in the last four years, focusing on his eye-poppingly colourful, hit-and-miss recent works. Fortunately, this big Tate retrospective – scheduled ahead of Hockney's 80th birthday – will go all the way back to his student work of the early '60s, and trace what's frankly a stupendous journey of ceaseless innovation.

Tate Britain , Westminster Thursday February 9 2017 - Monday May 29 2017

Grimaldi Service

The annual service in which around 60 clowns, dressed in full costume, gather to honour the king of the clowns, Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837), will once again take place in the All Saints Church in Haggerston. This temporary venue is larger than their usual haunt but it's still best to arrive early – many Grimaldi fans and clown admirers usually show, too, up so the pews will no doubt be packed.

Silent Disco at Cutty Sark

We've partied 244 metres above the city at The Shard and now we're sailing south with dance floor, headphones and expert DJs all in tow. The latest Time Out Silent Disco will be hopping aboard the Cutty Sark in Greenwich with three channels of perfect pop tunes to keep you dancing all night long. Boppers can also venture from the dance floor and explore the rest of the ship between 8.30pm-10pm to avoid the usual crowds and pepper the partying with a little history. Tickets must be booked in advance online.

When I click on "What to do in London this month" , I expected to get a list full of events, not the 10 highlights events, with more of them already passed.
This section should be review, it is impossible to use this website to get information what I want !!
