Christmas and New Year – the weeks ahead in Brixton

Yo-ho-ho and all that. Here are some tips to help you recover from a mountain of work parties or carry on the fun into 2011. Brixton style.

To be updated as the week goes on…

Tuesday 21: It’s the end-of-the-year film quiz at The Ritzy Upstairs – if you think you might have the answers to their notoriously hard questions, then go along for a 7.30pm start.

Wednesday 22: Feeling fat on mince pies and thin on culture? The new Viewfinder gallery invited Brixtonites to submit their photos for an exhibition, the Brixton Salon, and it has just opened at 52 Granville Arcade.

Thursday 23: There’s the Christmas Spectacular party at the Prince Albert on Coldharbour Lane (recommended by @memespring) – a charity fundraiser for Hill Mead Primary School. After that, you can head over to Plan b’s ‘Plan A Xmas Party’ to see the brilliant Illersapiens perform.

New Year’s Eve: For once, there’s a NYE offering that’s not ridicouloulsy expensive – the Sambalanca Three Pound Disco at The Rest Is Noise. See what you think with this taster first.
