The courtyard of Somerset House, normally an ice-rink at this time of year, is to become a fairground dodgems ride instead.

It’s not just a normal fairground ride though, as these dodgems are unlike how you’ve experienced them before, with an interactive light and sound installation as well as the usual fun of (allegedly) dodging other drivers.

It’s fun as art.

The dodgems fairground space, along with a bar and street food runs from 22nd Jan to 20th March 2021.

Tickets are only available in even numbers, so single people (or, ahem, threesomes) are not welcome, unless you want to pay double.

Sessions last either 60 minutes during the daytime or 90 minutes in the evenings.

There are also a series of late night sessions with DJ music on selected Thursdays and Fridays.

  • A 60-minute session with a drink included costs £20 for two people.
  • A 90-minute session with a drink included costs £30 for two people.

Additional food packages are here.

If a change in covid restrictions means they can’t go ahead or if the event needs to be adapted, you can switch to another date (subject to availability) or receive a full refund, including the booking fee.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Hmmm. Small print says three minutes on the dodgems out of the 60 or 90 minutes at the dining experience.
