In celebration of the Toy Story movies, House of Vans and Disney Pixar are staging an exhibition - 'To Infinity and Beyond'. It will be fully immersive and interactive, and will showcase products from the Toy Story collection along with themed games and giveaways. Audio and music from the motion picture will fill the House of Vans tunnels. The venue's gallery space is set to display an array of the film's characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Bo Peep. The brand's cinema space and art labs will also stage special screenings and workshops such as making a rocket shoebox, mug-making, slinky dog workshops and producing Toy Story-inspired screen-printed wrapping paper. 

When: 1- 11 December 

Where: House of Vans, London

Ketel One and the Meredith Collective stage Winter Yulefest 

Taking place in Shoreditch, the Winter Yulefest will feature London's first alcoholic snowstorm. Guests will experience a guaranteed white Christmas, as the rooms are filled with a boozy, pear and cinnamon infused blizzard. The festival will incorporate a Nordic theme, with the venue decked out with taxidermy and sheepskin-laden nooks. Vodka brand Ketel One will be onsite to provide festive cocktails, featuring ingredients such as honey, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and, of course, champagne. Guests will also be treated to a range of Nordic dishes, such as barbecued reindeer and fermented blackberries, roasted and smoked duck with apple and prune, pickled herring tempura and dill mayonnaise, smoked Norwegian beef tartare and torched mackerel. 

When: 28 November - 18 December

Where: Shoreditch, London 

Norwegian's 5D virtual reality experience

Airline Norwegian is bringing a 5D virtual reality experience (VR) to Westfield Stratford, inviting guests to take a 15-minute transatlantic trip to the USA. Visitors to the event will get to experience 'USA the Norwegian way', and will use VR to transport themselves onboard the Norwegian Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft and experience three-landmark US cities - New York, Los Angeles and Miami. VR headsets will also be available for shoppers who want to experience the Boeing flight without directly participating in the virtual 15-minute holiday.

When: 1 - 14 December

Where: Westfield Stratford, London
