If you want to go out on Christmas Eve itself, this party at gay club RVT – named best cabaret venue 2012 by the London Cabaret Awards – will be both untraditional and entertaining.
Expect to be belting out tunes to a singalong Christmas movie, then there are DJs, a secret Santa and a flamboyant host, Uber Mama: Maria.
This will be guaranteed to give you something to talk about on Christmas Day.

You’ll need to be a true party-head to hit this one, which promises 12 hours of music (until 10am, god help you) from house DJs including Bushwacka (Layo & Bushwacka), Luke Solomon and Mattia Sosti.

This regular weekday club night will take things up a notch for Boxing Day, promising those with cabin fever the chance to dance for seven hours to high-energy house.
You’ll be visually entertained by choreographed dancers, gogo girls, costume artists, stage shows and carnival-inspired performance.
You can take a relative breather in the stage bar, which will be playing pop and “guilty pleasures”. It’ll be a night to remember.
