Just because the festivities of Christmas Day is over, Christmas fun doesn’t have to stop there. Here’s our round-up of fun things to do on Boxing Day in London town this year.
Boxing day is the perfect day to go out and enjoy yourself, whether it’s to shake a leg and shake off yesterdays Christmas roast, have fun with friends or dare I say, to get away from the family for a bit. Boxing Day has a few options that you’ll find very interesting and exciting
As well as the fact that Boxing Day isn’t quite a busy or as expensive as New Year’s Eve, you’ll probably find pleasure in buying early bird tickets sooner rather than later.
Boxing Day Bottomless Brunch
The Duchess of Kent in Islington is hosting a bottomless brunch between 12 pm – 3 pm. For £20 per person, you get your choice of brunch dish and all the Prosecco or Bloody Mary’s you can manage in one and a half hours!
Christmas Party – Masquerade Glitterball
Sometimes all that glitters is golden. Glitterfest is hosting their annual Christmas Party Masquerade Glitterball at the Tropicana Beach Club from 10 pm – 3 am. This event is perfect for those that want to dress a have a night on the town away from the hype and stress of NYE. The venue will be transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland and you’ll be entertained by top-class DJ’s and performers…

Rumpelstiltskin in the theatre
See the UK premiere of this retelling of a beloved family fairy tale, reimagined with lashings of magical mayhem, rocking music and supreme silliness. In this groundbreaking theatrical spectacle that is anything but traditional, wonder at the visually stunning costumes, hyper-modern set and larger-than-life characters and delve into a fantastical world, fizzing with fun and laughs.
Although this show boasts oodles of style and entertainment, underneath the lavish exterior lies a vital lesson for all on the price of greed and revenge, and how love triumphs over hate. Spinning straw into gold may afford you a big house full of beautiful things, a wardrobe of designer clothes and a life of total luxury, but money, as they say, can’t buy you everything. Tickets start from £20 and the show takes place at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank
Expect a night of Roots Reggae, classic dubplates, positive vibes and weighty bass-lines, as one of the world’s best-known sound systems shells it down once again on their custom-made speaker stacks.

Looking for somewhere to spend some almighty frolics this Boxing Day in London? Open until a roaring 4 am, Piano Works keep the party going until late on into the night.
