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

Alexandra Sims

1. Christmas arrives in Covent Garden today. Head down to the cobbled piazza to see huge mistletoe chandeliers, a glowing Christmas tree and a magnificent silver reindeer. The whole area will get lit up 5:30pm at the big Christmas lights switch on by Pudsey Bear. 

2. Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Fest kicks off today with a diverse programme of films, exhibitions and discussions exploring queer identity. Head to the opening party at 7pm at Dalston Superstore this evening or catch the opening film 'Forbidden Games: The Justin Fashanu Story' at Rio Dalston at 8:30pm. 

3. See rare and intimate images of the purple one at 'Picturing Prince: Photographs by Steve Parke'. Parke was Prince's former official photographer, capturing over 500 images of the megastar. Take a glimpse at his selection of the impromptu shots and glimpses of the Prince’s life off stage at Proud Central Gallery for free.
