Are you ready for a fabulous 2019? Here are 5 of our London favourites this January:
New Year’s Day Parade, New Years Day, Piccadilly Circus 12pm:
With 10,000 participants and over 500,000 spectators, this promises to be a spectacular way to bring in the New Year.

Twelfth Night Celebration, 6 January, Southbank 2pm:
Beginning by Shakespeare’s Globe and travelling along the Southbank, the celebration is an excellent way to beat the post – Christmas blues! Herald the Green Man, watch the Mummers Play and watch the crowning of the King and Queen for the night.
