Things to Do This Weekend

Every week we’ll be giving Joes the best things to do this weekend no matter where you are in the country. Whether it’s the best new bars, clubs, restaurants, films or events, we’ve got you covered!

Things to Do This Weekend in London

London Santa Run

Sunday 2nd December. £25 entry, Free to watch.

Heading into December, it’s now all about the lead up to Christmas. And this Sunday sees the return of the annual London Santa Run at Victoria Park. The festive-themed fun run sees racers dress up in full Father Christmas attire and run for charity or just to lose a few pounds before festive feasting.

If you fancy taking part in London’s largest Santa Run, the last day to register is Friday 30th November but there will be a few spaces on the day. You can either run the course once for your 5k or run it twice to complete your 10k. Head over to the London Santa Run Website to find out more.

Location: Victoria Park, Victoria Park Road, E3 5SN. Nearest Tube: Mile End.


Sample Christmas

Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December. Free.

Sample Christmas is back this weekend in Greenwich Peninsula! Curated by HemingwayDesign, Sample is a village fete with a London twist. The pop-up market is a chance to see the work of new designers, craft makers and seasonal food stallholders all in the lush Peninsula Garden.

Immerse yourself in rainbow installations, head to the free Christmas wine tasting, or browse the pop-up market celebrating the very best of emerging talent within the capital. There’ll also be a market of seasonal food and fresh ingredients. Find out more here.

Location: Peninsula Square, SE10 0DX. Nearest Tube: North Greenwich.


Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol

Christmas Spiegeltent

Until Sunday 23rd December. Prices vary.

Returning for its seventh year, Christmas at the Spiegeltent continues its fine tradition of offering one of the best winter venues in Bristol. If you’re not familiar with the Spiegeltent concept, think cabaret tent but way cooler. The wooden round tent comes with stained glass windows, bevelled mirrors and an impressive draped ceiling.

Naturally there’s a bar and also in-built staging area which means there’s plenty going on throughout the season including Christmas parties, live music, DJs, performance, theatre, and festive masked balls. If you’re quick, you can also book your office party! Check out the full programme here.

Location: Christmas Spiegeltent, Waterfront Square, Canons Way, BS1 5LL.


Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester

The Frost Fair

Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December. Free.

Manchester’s Whitworth Art Gallery is hosting its annual pop-up winter Frost Fair this weekend and this year they’re celebrating 250 years of the circus in Britain. Be astounded and amazed by resident ringmaster Baron Bazaar and his troupe of performers, with live Trapeze and roaming stilt walkers performing throughout the weekend.

Fire and LED performers from Manchester’s very own Travelling Light Circus will light up the event with dance/theatre, while musical entertainment will be provided by mischievous northerners Mr Wilson’s Second Liners. There’ll also be artisan crafts markets and the Manchester Food and Drink Festival will keep you watered and fed. Find out more here.

Location: Whitworth Art Gallery, Oxford Road, M15 6ER.


Things to Do This Weekend in Cardiff

Christmas Deck Chair Cinema

Sunday 2nd December. £6 per film.

If you’re looking to get into the festive spirit this weekend, Joes in Cardiff could do a lot worse than heading to DEPOT. This Sunday, the Welsh capital’s best event space will be showing some Christmas favourite films. People have been voting over the last week or so and the three films selected are Elf, Home Alone and Love Actually.

You can head to all or just one screening, with entry tickets getting you a blanket and a deck chair. There’ll naturally be popcorn on offer, as well as mulled beverages and hot drinks on top of DEPOT’s trademark street food traders. Get your tickets here.

Location: DEPOT Cardiff, Construction House, Dumballs Road, CF10 5FE.
