Join the mob. Eat pigeon. Get involved in a Mardi Gras parade. This weekend is many things – but ordinary, it is notMore
FESTIVAL: The Winter Social
What’s this? A festival already? You betcha – and don’t you be worrying about the cold, now. Because at this boutique clubbing fest, you’ll be dancing way too hard to care. Filling an atmospheric warehouse space at the Kent County Showground with an all-star line-up including Steve Lawler, Eats Everything, Art Department and Ame, it’s shaping up to be an almighty day of bleeding-edge house and techno. Plus, it provides 2016’s first decent excuse to be raving in a field at 12pm, which in itself has to be worth celebrating.

SHOPPING: Bethnal Green’s Affordable Vintage Fair
There are times that we need to wax lyrical in order to sell you on an event. And there are times when all we need say is: ‘the UK’s biggest selection of vintage, reworked and hand-made fashion, curated by style experts and price-checked to ensure you pay to 75% less.’ Guess which one of those times this is.
