We are halfway through January and the majority of us will have broken our New Year’s resolutions. Not to worry though, we have a lovely range of must do’s for the rest of the month that will keep you entertained. From free events to help that bank balance along the way, to events that need to be planned in advance, we have got you covered!
2-4 Hoxton Square, Shoreditch, N1 6NU
Nearest Tube: Old Street
Opening hours: Thursday 20th February 7pm-11pm
Ever fancied yourself as a Mariah, Whitney or Christina with a whole gospel choir to back you up and show your inner diva? Well then, head to Shoreditch and take part in a Gospel choir Karaoke event. There will be sing-a-longs, team duets and of course all those big anthems will make an appearance. To top the night off there will be prizes awarded for ‘Best Performance,’ ‘Best Duet’ and so much more. Although this event is happening on Thursday 20th February, we wanted to get this event to you early so you don’t miss out on tickets.

So why not head down to what has been voted the ‘Best Fair’ by the Vintage guide to London and see what you can find. From glassware to cushions, cameras to record players. Whether you are on the hunt for something or not, having a walk around this market is a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Pick the type of ticket you would like and book here.

Colombia Road Flower Market
Colombia Road, London, E2 7RG
Nearest Tube: Bethnal Green
Opening Hours: Sundays from 8am to 3pm
Colombia Road Market is open on Sunday’s and transforms a typical London street into an oasis of flowers, plants and foliage. There are even 10ft banana trees available to buy. Adding to its uniqueness, the road is made up of over 60 independent shops, with art galleries dispersed between coffee and cupcake shops, with the occasional pub popping up along the way. The history of this road not only stems from the flowers that are sold but by the residents and shop owners who refuse to have retail shops take the fun away. Whilst the event is free, we can’t promise you won’t spend some money and leave empty handed, there is too much to you will want to buy. However make a note that if you head down in the afternoon just before it closes you will be able to snap up some great discounts on all your fav plants!
