South Pole Saloon is Christmas.

With Christmas just round the corner what a top way to start any festive celebration off by sipping on martinis and cocktails whilst also grabbing a selfie or two with the Sweet Candy Cane girls, Ice King and the Frozen Ice Queen of Brixton.

‘Beauty and the Feast’ is a blend of theatre and a supper club from the designers ‘Darling & Edge’.  This is their latest immersive event that is happening in The Vaults with the story being loosely based on the well-known fairy tale ‘Beauty and the Beast’.  Be warned though this is not your average panto as this is for adults only, so leave behind your kids.
