Ready to sink your teeth into February? Here are some of the goings on in Battersea to brighten up the wintery days.
Escape reality in style
When: 2nd February
Where: Battersea Arts Centre, SW11 5TN
The Night Court Ball is an evening of ‘enchantment and elegance’. This black tie event will let you escape reality with cosplayers to transport you to a magical realm, a string quartet and professional dancers to guide you to the dance floor. Tickets include professional photographs, a complimentary raffle ticket, a pre-ball scavenger hunt and some canapés too. Time to dust off that frock.
Get dark with this comedy show
When: 4th February
Where: The Battersea Barge, SW11 8PZ
This is a comedy show with a bit of a difference. First; it’s dark comedy. Second; it’s on a boat. So it’s going to be really fun. Get a full package ticket and you’ll get pizza and a drink to start your evening on deck, then head down and get ready to laugh. Warning: this comedy show isn’t for the easily offended!
Celebrate this Catalan festival
When: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th February
Where: Brindisa Kitchen, SW11 8EZ
Tapas Brindisa are back again with their calçotada supper clubs! These supper clubs are a 3 course menus that celebrate the humble calçots. You’ll get start with calçots and romesco sauce, follow up with either a mixed grill of meats or a vegan friendly vegetable grill and finish with a crema catalana. Each course is accompanied by a carefully paired glass of wine too. “Get stuck in, don your bib and create some mess the traditional Spanish way“. Sounds good to us.
Paint your own vase
When: 13th February
Where: R.O.S.E Community Club Room, SW8 4AN
The wonderful team at Girls Who Walk are back with another event! This is less walking and more painting… paint your own vase (or trinket) whilst meeting a group of likeminded women.
Go back to (high) school…
When: 17th February
Where: The Clapham Grand, SW11 1TT
High School Musical screening! Drinking games! Sing alongs! Dressing up! Special guest Just May! It’s going to be every bit as joyful as it sounds. Get your tickets whilst there still are some up for grabs.

Another creative one for you! 116 Cafe Bar are hosting a paint and sip evening where all you need to do is turn up ready for a good time. Your ticket include all the stuff you’ll need and you’ll also get a complimentary glass of wine or beer. A perfect way to finish the week off.
Brighten up winter
When: Until 25th February
Where: Battersea Power Station, SW11 8BJ
January and February are notoriously gloomy. The festive lights are down, the nights are long and it’s probably raining. Which is why any excuse for some brightness in the first few months of the year are very, very welcome. Enter: the free-to-attend Light Festival!
