Mega LOLs
Cork, Ireland

Deadpan stand-up comic and TV host Jimmy Carr will be bringing his distinctive laugh and close-to-the-bone humour to Cork for the start of the Irish leg of his Funny Business tour. Heed his advice: “If you are easily offended, don’t be a d*** about it…”

Pud cause
Covent Garden, London

One of the more bizarre pre-Yule traditions, the annual Great Christmas Pudding Race (now in its 35th year) for charity will again be taking over the cobbled streets of Covent Garden. Expect some interesting fancy dress and ridiculous inflatable obstacles.

Smash ’n’ jab
Dublin and Belfast

It’s been a good year for west London indie rockers The Vaccines. The band’s third studio album, English Graffiti, debuted to great reviews and reached number two in the UK albums chart, and now they’re seeing out 2015 with the final dates of their European tour, playing the Olympia Theatre in Dublin and Belfast’s Limelight. Catch them live before they head back into the studio.

Ready for battle
Earl’s Court, London

Over the past five years, Red Bull Culture Clash has become one of the must-see events in the UK live music calendar. Last month’s 2015 Clash, which saw four crews (A$AP Mob, Boy Better Know, Rebel Sound and Stone Love) and special guests battle in musical duels to win over a sold-out crowd, was the biggest and best yet. Keep your eyes on the Red Bull Culture Clash website for details of next year’s much-anticipated event.
