Each year, on January 26, Australia Day celebrations are held in cities all over the globe and London is no exception.

There are a variety of events and parties on offer many of which are located within the Wandsworth area.

Of particular note is the Clapham Grand, which is holding an entire weekend’s worth of celebrations in honour of the day.

Organised by the Comedy Carnival, the MC for the evening is Pete Jonas.

Alongside this showcase of comedic talent are movie screenings and club nights, which feature on January 25 and 26.
