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

The Book Of Darkness And Light | Camden People’s Theatre | 19-20 Dec (pictured)
You know how in yesterday’s tips we pointed out that you might be surprised to find a spooky show on at this time of year, given that October and November are peak-spook time? And how we had spooky one to recommend anyway? Well, here’s another! Yesterday’s was one performer and two stories, this one is two performers and three stories: expect spine-tingling tales accompanied by haunting live music. Beautifully creepy. See this page here for details.

The Ramshackle House | Stratford Circus | 4-24 Dec
Last week we ran a Q&A with Vicki Amedume of Upswing, the creator of this show, so it may already on your radar, but I thought it was worth a reminder, especially as this really lovely show is running all the way up to Christmas Eve and may well be the holiday child-treat you are looking for. Read last week’s article right about here, and head this way for more info and tickets.

Sleeping Trees & The Chocolate Factory – Christmas Special | Battersea Arts Centre | 19-23 Dec
“Join Willy Wonka, the Umpa Lumpas and various fatigued Grandparents in a version of the story nearly as offensive as Tim Burton’s film re-make. So if you’re struggling to think of Christmas present ideas this year, what better gift for a loved one than tickets to the hottest show in town. Seriously, the central heating in the venue is broken and the temperature throughout is unbearable.” The ludicrously talented Sleeping Trees – who, by the way are also appearing in ‘Scrooge And The Seven Dwarves’ over at Theatre503 this month – bring a seasonal twist to their version of everyone’s favourite story about children and a chocolate factory.
