Three things you won't want to miss in London this Friday

Alexandra Sims

1. See the terrifying specimens that are ending and saving lives with their secretions at the National History Museum's new exhibition 'Venom: Killer and Cure'. Take a look at specimens, including snakes, scorpions, ants and centipedes, plus see the impact the mysterious weapon has had over time in different cultures. Tickets are £10.50. 

2. The Southbank Centre's Winter Festival is back again for the frosty months. Head along for festive shows and performances, fun pop-ups and activities along a Nordic theme and the annual Wintertime Christmas market. Look out for an alpine lodge and a rooftop Finnish sauna on the Queen Elizabeth Roof Gardens. Entry is free, but you may be charged for some events. 

3. The capital's latest Christmas destination is back for a second year. Christmas in Leicester Square opens today and will be home to grotto, traditional Christmas market and a vintage Spiegeltent, where you can see a busy programme of Christmas shows brought to you from the Underbelly team. Entry is free, but tickets must be bought for selected events.
