Here we go, Brixton! It’s the last few days of 2023 so how will you be spending it? If you’re looking for some ideas, we’ve got a few…

Throw it back

When: 2nd December

Where: The Brickstone, SW9 6AQ

Head to The Brickstone for the launch of this throwback party event run by DJ Kamba, a Brixton local. From 9pm until 2am dance to some of the very best old school tunes at the first of- hopefully many- these events.

Swap out your old things for new

When: 2nd December

Where: Trinity Congregational Church, SW2 1NF

Trinity Congregational Chapel is hosting a festive charity clothes/item swap. The aim of the event is to raise money for local charities who are helping to support vulnerable children over Christmas. The idea is that you can bring up to 5 items (new or very good condition) to donate or swap with others at the event- great for finding some new bits for you or even gifts! There’ll be a raffle, food and drink and a lot of festive cheer.

Get your Christmas shopping sorted

If wrapping up gifts fills you with dread, then head to Market Row between 12pm and 4pm on Sundays in December where the elves at Brixton Bid will do it for you! All you need to do is make sure that the gifts are from one of the local BID businesses and that’s Christmas wrapped up!
