Light Up November In The Big Smoke

Oh November, November you sneaky little thing you! You've crept up on us all like an unexpected case of the munchies - attacking us with foggy stabs of nippy winds, early bird sunset falls and blankets of God damn drizzle that laugh in the face of ever hoping to achieve a good hair day.
Why hello there frizz you meddling old friend!

Well I don't know about you but it seems as though 2015 has flown by in a frantic frenzy with pimms-soaked plans for lazy summer picnic and sandy beach far-flung fancies being organised only yesterday! Now the serious stuff is all going down. The big-girl cable knitwear is out for walking, the fire log evenings are well underway and suddenly our G&T tumblers are being kicked into boot by the big boy triple hot chocolates, extra cream, extra whip and a wafer to finish please.

As Christmas races round the corner to whack us sideways with empty bank accounts and tummies full of Nana's rum-soaked mince pies and Cadbury's choccie selection boxes, it's about time I scoured out the very best events jingling their way into the berry merry season of glitter and fun. It's time to razzle and dazzle as the night streets begin to twinkle in starry delight, snuggle into winter glory with lashings of laughter, love and and find yourself engulfed in cheeky conversations, bottomless oboe and cracking music to wail to. 

Without further adieu let me unleash the ribbon on my festive sack of London's finest events gifting us this November...
