February 2019: Top Cheapo Events in London

Lily Crossley-Baxter

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.

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!
