What to do over Twixtmas, from Rockin' around the Christmas tree to show-stopping theatre 

Evening Standard
The most wonderful time of year beckons. It's not Christmas itself, when the extended family you've avoided for 12 months is forced together for dry turkey and Brexit arguments. Nor is it New Year's Eve, when you must navigate the hell of the firework-watching masses oohing on the South Bank and accidentally snog your ex after nine glasses of warm vodka. No, it's those blessed days in between - Twixtmas - for which the bells should ring out: December 27-30. Technically they are working days, though many of us have them as holiday (and the boss definitely does, so if you're working it barely counts). Fairweather city dwellers flee for family time, and tumbleweed drifts through the capital. And so we few, we happy few, we band of unloved or unwilling-to-leave Londoners, rule the city. Queues for restaurants evaporate, seats for the year's hottest plays are available, and you can get up close and personal with paintings at normally packed galleries. This is how to do Twixtmas. Feast It's not detox-dreary New Year yet so it's still totally fine to go and enjoy a decadent meal. Do check opening hours, as some of the tiny, hottest places in town are closed for the hols. Luckily, though, most of London is still open for business. El Pastor in Borough Market has been rammed with taco-seekers since it opened last week, so this is your chance to sneak in on a weekday for a late lunch of 24-hour marinated pork tacos and mezcal. It's open as usual from December 28 to 30. This is your chance to hopscotch the perma-queues snaking outside branches of Dishoom, which opens as usual after Boxing Day. Its curries will banish bleak midwinter blues. The Arch London hotel in Marble Arch actually has a special Twixtmas menu to tempt you away from the seven circles of sales hell. It features truffle beef salad, caramelised shallot tart and chocolate puds. Read more The best London restaurant vouchers to give this Christmas While most street food markets have closed, two remain open: Kerb Camden - which hosts 34 traders including Killa Dilla quesadillas and Ghetto Grillz bagels - and Mercato Metropolitano, Southwark's new Italian market. Both will be stoically serving up straciatella, piadina and oceans of prosecco to bridge the festive fizz gap between the 25th and the 31st. If you are determined to be home-based, get a takeaway and festoon your house with a Fortnum & Mason table firework. Better still, Twixtmas operates on Sunday boozing hours - in other words, it's acceptable to start on the Bloody Marys any time from 11am, and long drunken lunches are actively encouraged. Which is a choice time, then, to hunker down with a pint or three of something craft-based in a pub - landlords will be generous to those staying behind and Camden Town Brewery is sticking it to 2016 by offering customers a drink on the house between December 28 and 31. Just whisper "2016: dark year, dark beer". Slope off to the Guinea Grill in Mayfair before it shuts for a week in January, The Drapers Arms in Islington for landlord Nick's glorious hospitality, or get stuck into the huge selection of micro-brewed beers at the Dean Swift in Bermondsey. If you feel like being extravagant before a penitent 2017, visit Sushisamba, on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower on Bishopsgate. You'll have a clear view of the deserted capital and you should be able to get a daytime table without booking years in advance. The sesame Old Fashioned (sesame-washed whisky, salted caramel and maple) is the perfect pudding cocktail. Rockin' around the Christmas tree Read more New Year's Eve 2016: The best London parties Pull on your dancing boots for a pre-NYE bop at XOYO. It's hosting a Christmas party on the 28th, and cosmic electro from Space Dimension Controller on 30th. Otherwise, embrace old-school Soho and hit Ronnie Scott's: although its much-loved jazz orchestra Christmas Special show on 28th-29th is sold out, you can join in afterwards when the Late Late Show (11pm-3am) offers incredible jazz. Or head to the Upstairs Jazz Jam for Fifties New York-style razzmatazz. Curiously, embracing sports is a good ice-breaker if you're feeling lonely: strangers invite you into the fold, charged on cocktails and pints of beer. Head to Swingers in Shoreditch, a crazy-golf course where you can work off Christmas calories, reload with a round at Pizza Pilgrims and dance it all off (again) - there will be DJs playing sets until 1am. If you're more of a skater girl/boi, head to Skate-Dine-Bowl in Bayswater, where you can ice skate, eat and play some ten-pin. Show stoppers Read more The National Theatre's blinding 2016 deserves a standing ovation Theatre crews don't go home just because it's Christmas - the show must go on even if the cast would rather be scoffing leftover sandwiches in their pants. There are still tickets for Love at the National's Dorfman Theatre - heralded by Standard critic Fiona Mountford as the theatre's "play of 2016". Granted, its subject isn't the cheeriest - the benefits system and council housing - but it's a perfect counterbalance to the saccharine, happy-clappy Christmas joy you've been gorging on. If you'd rather keep laughing but can't face another cracker joke, there's comedy at the Soho Theatre. Michelle Wolf and Jayde Adams, both nominated for Best Newcomer at Edinburgh this year, perform their straight-talking one-woman shows from the 28th to the 30th - Wolf's last one is on the 30th. For something glitzy and escapist there's Dreamgirls at the Savoy, Shakespearean comedy in the form of Love's Labour's Lost and Much Ado about Nothing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. And, just in case you're still harking back to the 25th, Simon Callow in A Christmas Carol at the Arts Theatre. State of the art Read more Find out more about 2016 Turner Prize winner Helen Marten This is the ideal time for aspiring culture vultures foiled by their office jobs: for once you can avoid the weekend crowds by going off-peak midweek. Start with Beyond Caravaggio at the National Gallery, wander down to Tate Modern to see the Robert Rauschenberg retrospective, then head over the river to catch the final days and golden bum of the Turner Prize. If you prefer your pictures moving, hit the flicks: the rooftop cinema at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge is running throughout Twixtmas. Christmas may be over but it's always the season to appreciate The Miracle on 34th Street. Down on the ground you can catch new releases at off-peak times. While the summer holidays are for kiddie movies, winter holidays are full of meatier, Oscar fare and indie films. On the 28th alone, Picturehouse Central is showing Rogue One, Arrival, Sully and Passengers, with The Eagle Huntress, Uncle Howard and Life, Animated for docu-fans. @franklymccoy Follow Going Out on Facebook and on Twitter @ESgoingout... read more

"But it's also important that we take the time to spare a thought for those who may have lost loved ones this year, or, for whatever reason, may be alone or homeless this Christmas. "And let's give thanks to those who are working over Christmas - like our police officers, firefighters, emergency service and NHS staff, who work so hard to help keep us safe and well. "Not just at this time of year but all year round. "This is the true spirit of Christmas - and the true spirit of London." Mr Khan added "diversity and openness" is London's greatest strength as he looked forward to 2017.

Safety warning over Instagram posts from thrill-seeking tourists on Sussex 500ft cliff edge 

Evening Standard
Thrill-seeking tourists that posed on an "unstable" 500ft cliff edge sparked a safety warning from coastguard officials. Photographs uploaded to Instagram showed visitors to Seven Sisters Country Park near Brighton took it in turns to dangle their legs over the edge. The tourists, believed to be Korean, are understood to have visited the park at the weekend. One image showed a young woman in a dark coloured coat and striped tracksuit bottoms dangling her legs over the edge with her arms spread wide. Safety warning: The images sparked a safety warning from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (likes_jinny/Instagram) Another showed a woman in a cream coloured dress posing on one leg just inches away from the cliff edge. The images were condemned by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency which warned "no selfie or photograph is worth risking your life for". "Unstable": Experts said a recent spate of cliff collapses showed how unstable they were in places (choco_hyo/Instagram) Officials added a recent spate of cliff collapses over the past few months had highlighted how unstable they were in some places. A spokesman said: "We don't want to tell people off, but we do encourage people to not take these kinds of photos.

That means that if the cliff is 25 metres high, don't go closer than 25 metres towards it. "It's impossible to predict when the next piece might fall or how big it will be. Periods of intense rainfall will often make cliff edges more vulnerable. "We've seen a number of cliff collapses around the coast in recent months. It's very clear that cliffs are very unstable in places. "We really can't stress enough how important it is to keep back from the edge. There is no 'safe' place to be."... read more
