February can be a tough month: all the cold and none of the Christmas, but let London help you along with some vintage cars, amazing dances and Chinese New Year celebrations!
Sadler’s Wells Sampled | Angel
Start the month with something creative. For a measly £5.00 you can get standing prom-style tickets for performances including all kinds of fantastic dance! Enjoy world-class ballet, street dance and hip-hop, all from the best performers in the country. The event is designed to tempt people in, so you can try workshops, sign up to classes and enjoy free shows from 6pm, even if you don’t get tickets to the main events.
Chinese New Year Celebrations | Charing Cross
Celebrate in style with Chinese food stalls, performances, displays and workshops in London’s Chinatown to welcome in the year of the dog. This event will include craft stands, and businesses will be making an extra decorative effort for the events, so bring your warmest jacket and camera too. The festival highlight is definitely the largest dragon and lion procession in Europe!
London Classic Car Show | Custom House
Whatever you drive, the classic car show has something for everyone, with over 700 cars on display. There will be classic examples, modern designs and a chance to indluge in all your vintage-driver-dreams.
London Motorcycle Show | Custom House
Bringing all the best motorbikes in all their forms, this show is a must-see for any enthusiasts or new-to-the-scene bikers. There will be all the newest designs as well as examples of classics – both maintained and restored.
Craft Beer rising | Shoreditch
A craft beer festival with all bases covered, this event has street food and live music to go with their great selection of beers. There are over 90 brewers exhibiting including London favourites like Tiny Rebel, London Fields Brewery and Mondo and American names like Bianca Road, Goose Island and Brooklyn Brewery. If you’re not in it for the alcohol content then Big Drop and Infinite Session will be there with all the flavour and 0% Alc.
Orchid Festvial at Kew Gardens | Kew
Back with their annual introduction and showcase of one of the world’s most ornate flowers, Kew is focusing on Columbia’s flowers this time around. There will be talks, amazing displays and worshops to enjoy as well as late-night openings with live music, Columbian Street Food and plenty of dancing.
