TODAY’S COMEDY CHOICES

See What Sticks presents… Daniel Simonsen, Pat Cahill & Alfie Brown, Queens Head Piccadilly, 23 Jan

Michael Nunn, William Trevitt and company – aka BalletBoyz – are back with a brave new show featuring a cast of ten dancers and choreography by Royal Ballet apprentice Liam Scarlett. Event details and tickets here.
