In this week's issue, we're getting in the festive mood with our 12-step guide to having the ultimate Christmas in London, with everything from Christmas burgers to pop-up film screenings. But not everyone celebrates Christmas with the traditional turkey and all the trimmings on December 25, so we spoke to three Londoners about their alternative festivities. And because it's now officially acceptable to eat Christmas sandwiches (it's December, after all), we've eaten our way through the best (and the worst) so that you don't have to.
Plus, we chat to Olympic superstar Mo Farah about his favourite runnings spots in London and how to be positive in what's been, let's face it, a mostly crap year. And elsewhere, we've got all your festive needs covered with eight alternative Christmas nights out, London's filthiest pantos, and five of the best festive craft workshops.
