From the weekend before to Boxing Day, London clubs will be in full swing, so leave Christmas Day for recovering
The We Can Talk crew are hosting a Christmas party aiming to get you conga-ing around the floor to tunes from all eras.
Tim Filthy Dukes will be on the decks along with the One From The Vaults girls and Mark Hume.
This party will be friendly and, with Christmassy drinks and a sparkly tree, it’ll be hard not to get into the spirit.

Making the somewhat dubious claim of being “like your uni disco”, Club de Fromageisn’t for everyone.
However, if you’re in the mood for some lighthearted, silly pre-Christmas partying, this is your spot.
Music-wise, expect pop and rock hits from the past 50 years – anything from Blur to Abba – and it’s a fancy-dress club so Santa hats and reindeer antlers are obligatory.

For the last few years, the I Love Acid crew have been holding monthly parties celebrating the sound of the Roland TB-303, the bass synthesiser that shaped the early dance music scene.
Their Christmas party will be a blow out of acid house, techno classics, old skool rave, electro and live electronica.
With a line-up that includes Radioactive Man, Kirk Degiorgio, Paul Mac and Posthuman, the focus at this party is firmly on the music.
However, Corsica Studios is a great venue and you can expect a great atmosphere.
