Fed up with tinsel, reindeer and Christmas cheer? Fear not, this year there is an alternative!
Bad Santa’s Grotto at Graffik Gallery on Portobello Road is a haven for those who need a break from carols and goodwill to all men. Why not ditch the crowds on Oxford Street and head out to West London for a spot of beatboxing, rapping and street art? Not totally immune to the charms of the season, there’s schnapps, hot chocolate and chestnuts, as well as a mini Christmas market with unusual, street art-influenced gifts.
This Saturday its last opening, so be sure to head down for a different kind of festive spirit!
(And if you’d like something a little more traditional, Santa’s grotto at Duke of York Square off Sloane Square is open right up to Christmas Eve!)
