Time Out London Things To Do

So, 2023 is finally here, and it’s set to be big. Welcome. We are lucky enough to live in one of the buzziest cities on earth, with new theatrerestaurants and festivals popping up every week. But with seemingly endless choice for ace things to do in the capital, how does anyone know where to begin?

Fear not, thrillseekers, we’ve got you covered. Each year, Time Out releases its events calendar, giving you the best events in London as they happen, month by month. After all, we can’t all be the types of people who plan things out in advance ourselves. Some of us are the ones who book tickets too late, and have to show up three hours early to queue for an event (or worse, not be able to go at all). Now, even the most chaotic Londoners around can plan out their year with ease. Simples. 

And if even that’s not enough, we’ve got more for you. Need a plan, like, right now? Here’s the best things to do in London this week and this weekend. Or want to never, ever run out of stuff to do in the Big Smoke? Check out our definitive list of the 101 best things to do in London. Time to get those calendars filled, people. Thank us later.
