London: The Luna Cinema

45 user reviews 4

Winter is coming... And you know what that means? Cosy pop-ups as far as the eye can see. If it's a festive outdoor screening you're after, The Luna Cinema will be heading to London for a cute series of festive flicks, coupled with delicious food and drink.

One of the UK's prettiest winter pop-ups has to be Deck the Halls at Pergola Paddington. Boasting twinkling lights, 350 Christmas teres and themed interiors, this stunning space is offering so much more than just festive fare, as there's a jam-packed event schedule to explore too.

Come the festive season, Escape to Freight Island will be no more. In its place? Winter Island, a heated grotto complete with a twinkling, towering Crimbo tree. There'll be all kinds of live entertainment, from activities to music, as well as top-quality grub from Voodoo Rays and more.

Liverpool and Manchester are set to get their very own snow village this Christmas. Swaddle up in your cosiest garms then saunter over to their charming après ski-themed huts for hot toddies, eggnog and a cheeky spot of karaoke, all while surrounded by snowflakes and magical fairy lights.
