Fancy a Saturday night full of 'love, funk and souuuuul'? Of course you do. Then it's best to head to Peckham's Bussey Building for an all-night session of Motown, rare groove, down-and-dirty disco and acid jazz. Heading up the bill is a live set from good-times-guaranteed afro/funk/latin collective Lakute, while DJs such as Jazzheadchronic, Snowboy and Nik Weston keep the beats coming across four floors. The organisers warn us to 'be ready to get your soul deep-fried and battered.' Duly noted.

It's beginning to feel a lot like... Oh, you know what. Which means it's time to whirl, twirl and pirouette (or cling desperately to the side) at this, London's most romantic outdoor ice rink. As well as the chance to get slip-slidey amid the fairy lights, there's tastiness aplenty at the Fortnum's Lodge – plus, at Skate Lates the likes of Eat Your Own Ears, Supa Dupa Fly and Peckham radio station Balamii turn the rink into a dance floor with a difference. The difference being, presumably, that you can fall flat on your face at any given time. Rave with caution, people.
Until 14 Jan; from £8.90
