What’s On In London

Undoubtedly one of the first things I’m going to do this weekend is check out the sales along the King’s Road. An annual January sales trip always has to include the Clearance Sale at Peter Jones for home essentials and a trip to the third (kids) and fourth (gadget) floor. Though this year I may also take some time out for myself and stop at the first (beauty) floor too.

So along with the amazing sales along the King’s Road and on Duke of York Square, what else is happening this weekend?

Curzon Chelsea is showing both Joy and The Danish Girl.

It’s the final weeks of Victoria & Albert Museum’s exhibition Shoes: Pleasure and Pain, which ends on January 31st, 2016. This is one I definitely have to check out.

V&A

The Fine Food Market at Duke of York Square is back on Saturday after a 2-week break. YAY!

And around town the London Short Film Festival starts on Friday. You can also watch Crosstentatious: An Improvised Jane Austen Novel at Leicester Square Theatre or you can take the kids to see Mr Rabbit meets Santa at The Puppet Theatre Barge in Little Venice. The International Mime Festival returns on Saturday and if you want to be roller girl and hit the dance floor in your skates, Bump Roller Disco will be at Southbank Centre until Sunday 17th January 2016.

Plenty happening. January certainly doesn’t have to be boring.

Culture: Todd Haynes’s latest movie Carol comes out on Friday (27th November 2015) and Cate Blanchett’s lead role is already garnering an Oscar buzz. This seems to be a film that’s one to watch.
