Outdoor ice rink, at Somerset House – 14th November 2013 to 5th January 2014
London has loads of outdoor ice rinks to choose from at Christmas time, but the most glamorous can be found at Somerset House. Even if you only go to watch, the backdrop is spectacular. The 18th-century floodlit courtyard will be decorated with a huge Christmas tree, and you can go shopping for yuletide treats in the Christmas shopping arcade.
And here are some more comedy gigs…
