And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
The Giant Storytelling Bed | Southbank Centre | 13-21 Feb
There’s an awful lot of culture for kids being staged over there at the Southbank Centre this week, because the Imagine Children’s Festival kicks off on 10 Feb. And obviously, it’s no coincidence that it’s half term week. You are going to need all this stuff, if you are in charge of a child for the next ten days. I am totally enticed by the idea of a Giant Storytelling Bed, but that might be because I am a very, very tired old person. But I am pretty sure young ones will be entirely entranced too. See this page here for more info and to book (but hurry, it looks like tickets are going quickly).
A Pony For Your Thoughts | Vault Festival | 13-14 Feb
Another festival, another kids’ show. Sorry, singletons, I’ll make sure you get yours soon. That said, I reckon grown-ups would love this one anyway, because it’s the work of the utterly brilliant Trygve Wakenshaw, and will therefore be beyond fabulous. No pressure, Trygve. For more info about the show, see this page here.
A Series Of Unfortunate Break-Ups | Camden Comedy Club | 14 Feb
Yes, I have been studiously avoiding the whole Valentines thing in today’s tips – see, singletons, I do look out for you – but I can’t help thinking that this one off performance of this comedy play about “love, loss and Harry Styles” is probably timed to coincide with the whole sorry Hallmark affair. But, you know, this play looks good, despite the subject matter, and much better than attempting to squeeze you and your sweetie into some crowded restaurant for a substandard meal and an awkward conversation everyone else can hear. See the venue website here for more info.
