This weekend's best festive food, drink, shopping and culture events

Published on January 5th 2012.

Lost Weekend: 5 – 8 January

The 9th London Short Film Festival
Cutting-edge shorts paired with live music, fantastic training, parties, art and high-end fashion – this year’s Short Film Festival has provided 24 programmes of new British short films with nearly 300 new films from a variety of talents. Highlights will include Not The Skin I Live In – Black and Asian Stories: highlighting Black and Asian experiences in the UK and Femmes Fantastiques: a selection of films featuring women with attitude. Locations will be dotted across London in some familiar and some new-to-the-scene places, such as the Hackney Picture House.

Adults: £5, Concessions: £4

Multiple Venues

Times and days vary (see programme for full details)

Fri 6 – 15 January


Bad Sex at Proud Camden
Veering away from the awkward bumpiness its name may suggest, Bad Sex will  flaunt some of London’s hottest unsigned bands and newly established lo-fi, chillwave and noise acts. Discounts on cocktails, including their Quick Fuck Shots, as well as food and free entry until 9pm make for even more reason to head north this Thursday. Hosted by an array of avant-garde promoters, Proud offer a real taste of talent from London’s underground music scene and kick of the new year with our favourite ones to watch. You saw them here first.

Free entry until 9pm on guest list, then £5 on the door, £3 with NUS or flyer

Audience in Soho
at the Soho Theatre comes with a warning: This performance may come with an emotional, tumultuous battle with your inner conscience. Ontroerend Goed, who have been described as one of the world’s most exciting and dangerously sexy theatre companies, famed for their global hits such as Internal, The Smile Off Your Face and Once and For All We’re Gonna Tell You Who We Are So Shut Up and Listen are back with another production like no other play you will have ever seen before. Unforgettable to say the least, the play comes to a close this weekend, so be sure not to miss out.

Winter Exhibition
Celebrating the end of Hoxton Art Gallery’s first year, the Winter Exhibition  features a plethora of specially selected contemporary artists, handpicked by the gallery’s keen-eyed director, Matthew Nickerson. The artists include Guler Ates, Lucy Wilson, and Ha Young Kim, with works ranging from vibrant painting to digital landscape to eerie photography. Our hot tip: watch out for a collection of new paintings by the artist Katie Sims, which depict  new practices, inspired by her time in the Museo Del Prado in Spain.

Farewell To Christmas Photography Jayne Lloyd Farewell to Christmas
This Friday is officially the last day of Christmas. Whilst some can’t wait for it to be over, others count down to the last bleak and depressing day. However, the guys at the Geffrye Museum are not feeling glum and have instead decided to celebrate with their own traditional burning of the holly and the ivy, carol singing, stories around the fire about Epiphany, whilst sipping on the last of the mulled wine and feasting on twelfth night cake. The night of celebrations will be outside, so it may also coincide with your last chance to wear that hand-knitted, reindeer Christmas jumper you love.


Geffrye Museum

4pm – 5pm
