Five festive things that are inspiring us this week

The Winter Chalet

The Winter Chalet

Decked out with fairy lights, pinecones and an open fire, York & Albany's alpine-inspired pop-up is the best place to enjoy a festive tipple (or two) ‒ make sure you try the chilled mulled cider.
The Book of Makeup Magic

The Book of Makeup Magic

Forget the partridge in a pear tree, what we really want on the first day of Christmas is this luxurious advent calendar ‒ filled with 12 beauty treats ‒ from makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.
Winter Cinema

Winter Cinema

Nothing beats snuggling up on the sofa in front of a festive film ‒ except maybe a screening at the Berkeley's rooftop cinema. Think cosy cabins for two, feather-down blankets and homemade hot chocolate.
The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

It just wouldn't be Christmas without a performance of The Nutcracker. Which one will we book? This enchanting adaptation by the Northern Ballet, set (of course) to Tchaikovsky's timeless score.

Downton Abbey

The Downton Christmas special has become as much of a TV tradition as the Queen's Speech, but sadly, this is the end for everyone's favourite period drama. The question is: will Lady Edith find happiness at last?
