An incredible venue made more incredible

Village Underground is one of the best event venues in London - yet not that many people know about it. Why? Well, first of all, it is tucked away down a side street between a car park and Great Eastern street, meaning it is not all that immediately obvious to those trying to find it. It is also obscured by a massive wall-sized graffiti painting, which tends to also distract the visitor.

Once you've finally found it though, you will be so glad you did. The interior is largely solid brick - giving the place a realistically industrial feel. The venue used to be a warehouse, but has been extensively renovated to now host everything from concerts to club nights, theatre to exhibitions.

As well as the main space, heading towards the roof will reveal something very interesting. Four ex-service tube trains sit proudly, creating the creative studios of the venue. They can host artists, musicians

Should you decide to go this month, you will have an extra treat - as the whole venue has been turned into an Imaginarium. The role of the Imaginarium is simple - to give you a Christmas party unlike anything you have ever had before - there is food, plenty of drinks, and on top of that, a plethora of performers there to titillate and tease in equal measure. Expect can-can dancers, trapeze walkers - even astronauts. There is drinking and dancing to finish off the night in style - so if you haven't been to Village Underground before - consider it. Just one thing. Go a little bit earlier than normal, so that you have time to find the place in comfort, before you get to the serious business of enjoying yourself...
