The Gingerbread City is exactly that — a miniature city made from gingerbread. Houses, skyscrapers, railway stations, bridges, shopfronts and other infrastructure are crafted from the spiced biscuit, held together with all manner of fondants and icings, and decorated with sweets, chocolates and goodies. Basically, every child's (and lots of adults') dream.
LEDs illuminate the biscuity buildings, and in the past, a train set has been sent weaving seamlessly among the sweet structures (fingers crossed for the same this year). Don't fire up your oven just yet though. The Gingerbread City is put together by teams of architects, civil engineers and other professionals, who all get competitive to make their structure the sweetest of them all — with first, second and third place prizes up for grabs. Each company or team is assigned a plot within the model town, and then designs, makes, bakes and decorates a structure for that plot.
This year is the fifth time The Gingerbread City has been exhibited in London, and it's taking up residence in Belgravia for the first time. It's open to visitors for five weeks over Christmas and New Year. Nature and the City is the theme, with a focus on rewilding. Forests, flood plains, urban farming and wetland plots were made available to participants, though we don't yet know what the results will be. A herd of rewilded gingerbread bison, perhaps?
The Gingerbread City 2021 is at 6-7 Motcomb Street, Belgravia, from 4 December 2021-9 January 2022. Tickets are £14 adult/£8.50 child, and need to be booked in advance via their website directly or by contacting the concierge and all money raised goes to the Museum of Architecture Charity Fund.

Preview Screening of 'Boiling Point' + Q&A with Director Phillip Barantini and Actors Ray Panthaki and Lauryn Ajufo (December 8th)
At one of the hottest spots in London, during one of the busiest nights of the Christmas season, head chef Andy (Stephen Graham) is under pressure: he is running late, his restaurant is overbooked, the meat stock is low and there is a surprise visit from a health inspector. Cleverly choreographed and impressively shot in one continuous take with no hidden cuts, Philip Barantini’s suspenseful drama is an immersive masterclass of tension. BIFA-nominated Stephen Graham leads an incredible ensemble cast in the most exhilarating British film of the year.
As we are close partners with the British Film Institute, The Lexo Club are proud to offer access to this preview screening which will give you an exclusive glimpse of this film before the public have access on the 31st of December.
This event will take place at the BFI Southbank in London at 8:30 PM on the 8th of December. Tickets are priced at £55 per person.
Set in the near future, Cameron (Mahershala Ali) is a loving husband and father who is expecting his second child with his wife Poppy (Naomie Harris). When he is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary, Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.

Agathe Rousselle (in an incredible feature debut) stars as Alexia, a woman who has a titanium plate fitted into her head after a car accident as a child, and consequently develops an unusual connection to motor vehicles. As an adult she makes her living dancing at car shows until a violent altercation with a fan sends her on a bizarre, unpredictable journey (for both Alexia and us). Titane, an exploration of avant-garde body-horror, is vibrant, extreme cinema, but it’s also delicately woven with surprisingly tender themes of gender and sexuality, and a deliciously wry humour. This follow-up to Raw firmly asserts Ducournau as a bold and original filmmaker worth taking a shocking, ultra-violent trip for.

It's been nearly two years since our last trip to the Continent, so there's no doubt The Witcher Season 2 is among the most eagerly anticipated TV Shows this side of Christmas.
The eight episodes of The Witcher Season 2 are set to continue the story of the eponymous, monster-hunting Geralt of Rivia, played once again by big-screen Superman Henry Cavill. The season 1 finale ensured that the show's (sometimes confusing) multiple timelines are now aligned, uniting Geralt with orphaned princess Ciri (Freya Allan) - just as their respective destinies decreed. We're also guessing it won't be too long before they cross paths with the show's third viewpoint character, the mage known as Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra).
On Wednesday the Official Red Carpet Premiere will take place at the classic premiere location of Odeon Luxe, Leicester Square in London and The Lexo Club can provide you with access. Please use your membership to contact the concierge to make your booking.
