Nightlife in London means everything from bar hanging-out to cabaret performances, comedy, concerts, top-rate films, opera, theater, and dance. TimeOut London usually has the latest listings and tips on student discounts and cheap tickets. To dance the night away, for starters hit the Ministry of Sound, Fabric, and Notting Hill Arts Club.
London offers world-class concerts, theatre, and dance performances. Cheap tickets for London theatre can be had at a variety of venues including the half-price “txts” booth in Leicester Square. Legendary British actors like Judi Dench, John Gielgud, and Lawrence Olivier have pounded the boards at the Old Vic theatre, for example, where Kevin Spacey is now the artistic director.
For other innovative performing arts and fun activities, you can’t go wrong at the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) near Clapham Junction or the Barbican Centre, in The City.
