And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Kayla MacQuarrie – Traumatised | Soho Theatre | 13 Dec
“Kayla MacQuarrie is Traumatised. She’ll tell lots of jokes about it though so stick with her and it’ll be ok. In her award-winning show (Best Comedy Show, Brewery Fringe) she’ll cover getting hate crimed, breaking down and growing up in Essex (the thing she’s still the most bitter about) all in a friendly, confessional style.” Only on the one night, don’t miss it, book tickets here.

A Very English Christmas with Tenebrae | King’s Place | 13 Dec
The very brilliant choral outfit Tenebrae are doing one of my very favourite things, and performing a load of Christmas music, on this occasion all by English composers. The programme will include Herbert Howells’ ‘A Spotless Rose’, Jonathan Lane’s ‘Bethlehem Down’, John Tavener’s ‘The Lamb’, Gustav Holst’s ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’, Peter Warlock’s ‘Benedicamus Domino’ and Richard Rodney Bennett’ ‘Five Carols’. Hurrah, info here.

Rapunzel | Hoxton Hall | 13-30 Dec
More pantomimery for you now (well, I’m not sure we have had one for a few days but we have certainly had quite a few over the last couple of weeks) and this time it’s ‘Rapunzel’ at Hoxton Hall, from the same team that brought you last year’s ‘Puss In Boots’. “Rapunzel tells the story of the young girl with flowing tresses, locked away in a tower by an evil witch. Will the Prince rescue the heroine? Will Witcherty Grub be defeated? Will Mary Cherry, the castle cook, bake the cake in time?” Head this way for details.
