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

Nath Valvo – Happy Idiot | Soho Theatre | 12-21 Jan
Here’s a show by another member of that esteemed club known as Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominees, and that will be because they’ve been coming thick and fast to the Soho Theatre lately as part of the Best Newcomers season. Nath Valvo is an Australian import, and has won much praise for his sharp and honest comedy. See this page here for all the info.

Abigail | The Bunker | 10 Jan-4 Feb (pictured)
“A man in his 40s and a woman in her 20s meet on a trip to Berlin. Across a fractured timeline, the story of their relationship, their love, and their struggle unravels before our eyes.” A very promising looking production of this 2014 script by prizewinning playwright Fiona Doyle, directed by The Bunker’s artistic director Joshua McTaggart. Lots of post-show events, too, during the run, head this way to find out details.

Southbank Centre’s Adventures In Moominland | Southbank Centre | until 23 Apr
You may already have done a tour of this fab-sounding exhibition, because it’s been on since before Christmas, but I haven’t, and would love to, so I am officially transferring my desires onto you. If you’ve been already, you can move on, but if you haven’t, I’d urge you to consider booking yourself into this exhibition, which I feel sure will prove charming and evocative. And you can take your children aged 7+ too, if you want. See the venue website here for more.
