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

Nine Lessons And Carols For Godless People | Conway Hall | 16, 19, 20, 22 Dec
Hurrah, Robin Ince has revived his brilliant Christmas variety nights: expect science, comedy, music and long lines of really high quality guests – the likes of Josie Long, Grace Petrie, Michael Legge, Matt Parker, Helen Keen, Steve Backshall, Simon Singh, Kat Arney and John Luke Roberts. I don’t really have room to mention everyone, so that’s a sample, but really, so much good, take a look here, for line-ups and booking links.

Mark Thomas – A Show That Gambles On The Future | Leicester Square Theatre | 16-17 Dec
We already mentioned this show when it was on at Leicester Square Theatre for a longer run in October, but you might have missed that. Maybe you were laid up the whole time with a really bad dose of flu. Or maybe you were sent overseas for a lengthy work trip. Or maybe you were completing an autumn tour of the UK. Whatever your reasons, you now have the chance to make it, so head this way and book your tickets.

Tobacco Road | Pleasance Theatre | 16-19 Dec (pictured)
It’s a work in progress but you can expect something pretty good, not least because this is the work of a highly acclaimed company. If you don’t remember their name (er, Incognito) you might remember their brilliant production of ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’, which was on at the edfringe in 2016, and scored very highly with our reviewer. This new play follows the lives of a group of gang members living in 1920s London. See the venue website here for details.
