1 David Shrigley Exhibition, Haggerston
This solo exhibition features more than 30 dryly humorous works of art by Shrigley, spanning prints, paintings and “other things too” like ceramics and posters. The featured works are all done in Shrigley’s slightly absurd style with bright colors and wry, tongue-in-cheek captions.
Date: November 18 – January 27
Time: Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Address: Hang Up Gallery, 10D Branch Place, Hoxton, N1 5PH

2 Pizza Sundays at La Goccia, Covent Garden
For a real treat at the end of the week, Italian restaurant La Goccia in Petersham Nurseries now hosts Pizza Sundays. The restaurant serves authentic Neapolitan-style pizza topped with classic toppings, as well as modern recipes. Whether you opt for a favorite dish or something new, expect to taste the finest Italian ingredients.

3 The Curling Club, Southbank
Curling is a fun and festive activity to do with family or friends, whether you are skilled or just average. The Southbank Center Curling Club does not require ice or specialist shoes, as the stones slide down a specially designed track, instead of ice. It’s part of the site’s winter festival, so head out to eat and drink, or browse the Christmas market after your game. Also try curling at Twickenham and King’s Cross.
Date: until January 3, 2023
Tickets: from £24 per person
Address: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road SE1 8XX

All on a rooftop terrace with cozy blankets and an open fire.
Service hours: 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Price: £35 for 2 courses, £43 for 3 courses
Address: 45 Rideau Road, EC2A 3PT
