31 Mar: John-Luke Roberts, Future Islands, and Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales For Young & Old
And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
COMEDY: John-Luke Roberts – Stnad-Up | Soho Theatre | 31 Mar – 1 Apr
John-Luke Roberts is a man who, when not trying to make people think I’ve put a typo in his show title (it really is called ‘Stnad Up’), is a member of the ‘Alternative Comedy Memorial Society’ and a writer on ‘The News Quiz’ and ‘Have I Got News For You’. Here he brings his third solo show to the Soho Theatre, “an emotionally raw and incredibly silly hour of sort-of-stand up”. Details and tickets here.
MUSIC: Future Islands | The Roundhouse | 30-31 Mar
Together for a decade already, Future Islands boosted their fanbase massively last year with a series of impressive TV performances and their fourth album (first for the legendary 4AD label), ‘Singles’. This will be the second of two nights at The Roundhouse. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales For Young & Old | The Bargehouse | until 11 Apr
This has been on for a little while already, but the Easter holidays provide the perfect opportunity to grab some last minute tickets. Philip Pullman’s collection of Grimms’ fairytales is adapted into a piece of immersive theatre by Philip Wilson. Details and tickets here.
