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

Friends For All – Simon Mole | Roundhouse | 24 Jun
“8-year-old Lexi doesn’t make friends as easily as some. If only her school would allow a non-school uniform day then she could be herself and find others like her. Inspired by Grandad’s hippy stories from the swinging 60s, she decides to fight the powers that be, namely her class teacher, Mr Marsh, and the class bully, Suzy.” Another choice from The Last Word, this time a family orientated show (5-11 years) from poet and rapper Simon Mole. See this page here for more.

The Story Beast – Myths Monsters & Mayhem | Pleasance Theatre | 24 Jun
And another family show! What’s going on? It’s just all completely kid friendly today, which is probably fair enough given that it’s a Sunday. John Henry Falle (wizard) and Mandy Dassa (witch) perform “hairy, ever so slightly scary tales for kids from the multi award-nominated wizard and his arch-enemy, Mandy the Witch Who Lives Under The Sink.” The Story Beast has won much acclaim in the past for shows up in Edinburgh, so I can absolutely recommend with confidence. Head this way for info.

Greenwich Fair | Greenwich Town Centre | 23-24 Jun (pictured)
And finally, yes, another event that will entertain your children, though this one is very much for grown ups too, so you don’t need a child to attend. There’s a wide range of street theatre, circus and dance from companies across the UK and Europe, and it pretty much all looks amazing. Take a look at this page here for a flavour of what’s going on over the weekend.
