If going ice skating at 3am sounds like the sort of crazy idea that appeals, then read on.
As Somerset House, which has an annual outdoor ice rink, is having a one-off 24-hour skating event in its winter skating rink, which coincidentally happens to mark the opening of their new exhibition about the non-stop 24-hour culture.
The 24-hour skatathon will start at 11pm on Thursday 7th December, and the overnight tickets cost just £5 (compared to £13.95 normally) for a 45 minute session.

Somerset House says that there will also be surprises throughout the night, including one Golden Ticket upgrade each hour.
Tickets to this rather unusual skating “opportunity” will be released next month here.
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.
