Catch the ‘Shopping and Fucking’ writer’s first major work in aeons, which really does feel like vintage Ravenhill. It’s ominous, it’s powerful, and Nicola Walker is sensational.
Hear choirs belting out seasonal classics and sip on steaming mulled wine 52 metres above the ground on this Christmassy climb up the roof of The O2.
This King’s Cross newbie comes from the crew behind The Palomar and The Barbary, and has a menu that reads like their beautiful baby. Expect all the flavours of modern Jerusalem and dishes that will live on in your dreams.
Humperdinck’s 1893 opera for kids is as warm as a witch’s kitchen and as dark as the forest outside. This kitschy, witty new production centres on a lopsided gingerbread cottage impaled by a giant knife. It’s both sweet and shiver-inducing.
Goldsmiths CCA has been converted into a little shop of psychedelic horrors for the Estonian artist’s show filled with ceramic-and-fabric installations about metamorphosis. It’s a chance to get lost in a surreal, magical universe.
Delivering old-school, kite-flying, chimney-sweeping nostalgia, Disney’s improbable sequel – coming 54 years after the original classic – is a risk that magically pays off. See it for a spoonfulof pure cinematic sugar.
Catch this annual celebration of THE NEXT BIG THINGS in art. The show is back at the South London Gallery and the must-sees include work by George Stamenov, Kamile Ofoeme and Yushi Li.
This verrrry free adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story is gross. We’re talking hacked-limbs-and-ruptured-organs gross. It’s also feverishly enjoyable and surprisingly Christmassy.
Nordic art superstar Olafur Eliasson has installed 24 huge blocks of ice outside Tate Modern. Each one was lifted from the sea after falling from the Greenland ice sheet. Watch the blocks melt for a chilly reminder that climate change means more than just barbecue summers for ever.
The Soho branch of modern taqueria Breddos has turned its basement into a bar that plays with trad Mexican flavours in the same way it toys with them on its inventive food menu. Margaritas are a given – there are six twists on the classic – and the Horchata Martini is the ultimate festive drink.
Director Yorgos Lanthimos warps his period piece – it’s loosely based on the rivalry-filled court of Queen Anne – into a Lewis Carroll-esque comic nightmare. Go to see Olivia Colman, who’s hilarious and heartbreaking as the unstable monarch.
Silent night? Not at Queen Elizabeth Hall where you can see and hear some of London’s best community choirs blast out everything from seasonal songs to classical, choral, jazz and pop ballads.
Get an intimate insight into Sylvia Pankhurst’s socialist suffragette movement at this exhibition of remarkable photographs taken 100 years ago by women’s rights activist Norah Smyth. It’s a snapshot of an extraordinary moment in women’s social history.
This super-trippy VR installation uses breath sensors, heart monitors and scent-dispersal systems (yikes!) to explore our connections to nature.
We love this quaint mini market, which includes stalls purveying artisan coffee, baked goods and crafts. There’s even a rotisserie. It’s running a series of four Christmas fairs where you can find one-of-a-kind gifts, with the latter two taking place on December 15 and 22.
We’ve put our best covers on T-shirts, totes and posters – plus all of them in one awesome book. Buy them here.
