Vive la France, 19 - 21 January

France comes to London twice this year: once for the Tour de France in July and this weekend for Vive La France at Olympia.

During this three-day event, you can ignore the property displays and ferry hawkers and head straight for the wine and cheese.

There are cooking demonstrations, tutored wine tastings, and cheese after cheese of glorious cheese. (And sausage. How can we forget the sausage?) Not all of the products on offer come with free samples, of course, but Londonist bets you won't leave empty handed.

All this for the bargain price of £8 if you book online. Tickets are £12 on the day.

For more detailed information, directions, and all that good stuff, visit the Vive la France Web site,
