Things to do in London this weekend: 17 – 19 January
From a glittering lights festival in Canary Wharf to two hot restaurant openings and a big anniversary celebration for the English National Ballet, here's what not to miss.
At the Mindful Drinking Festival, you can discover the latest names in low and no-alcohol tipples, from beers and wines to spirits and craft sodas. The two-day event is free to attend and features a range of talks on the Motivation Stage, plus drink masterclasses and a chance to shop for brews to take home.
Sip on alcohol-free creations from familiar brands (Old Mout, Adnams and Brew Dog among them), then sample the new and innovative offerings from the big brands of tomorrow. Us? We’ll be toasting Dry January with a glass of the new sparkling tea from Fortnum & Mason, and sampling the ready-to-drink alcohol-free cocktails from Sipling. The best bit? You, too, can sip all day and still wake up hangover free.
