It's probably a bit too soon to be looking forward to Christmas, but it has been just too long since I got excited about going to Santa's grotto. That's effectively what The Reindeer is - a kind of grotto for grown-ups from the people behind East London's Bistrotheque. From the start of December until the day before Christmas Eve, the pop-up restaurant and theatre will take over a massive space at the Old Truman Brewery. Amongst pine trees and fake snow, diners can enjoy camp and kitsch cabaret from the likes of Pam Ann and Kiki & Herb or book one of two log cabins for their own Alpine private party. Thankfully, you won't have to sit on the knee of an old man in a red and white outfit.
