Most of us love a good-old fashioned Christmas with festive marketsice skatingcarol services and all the trimmings. However, it’s not everyone’s glass of mulled wine. Thankfully, London is abuzz with unusual Christmas events so this winter, it’s time to shake up the festive traditions. Switch things up with a visit to a Satanic Flea Market, buy your gifts from a Goth Shop, belt out 90s tunes instead of Christmas carols, or start your holiday by plunging into an icy pool at the Crisis Icebreaker
