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

Mother Goose | Wilton’s Music Hall | 2-31 Dec
It’s December now, and has been for a whole day, so now I can recommend pantos, and Christmas themed shows, and shows with Christmas in the title without feeling guilty about it. So I am not going to worry about the proliferation of Christmassy events in today’s tips. Starting with this, “the mother of all pantos”, from the team behind last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Dick Whittington’. See this page here for info.

Cracked Christmas Cabaret | Jacksons Lane | 2-3 Dec
And if you are looking for something that’s a bit of an alternative to the traditional Christmas fare, here’s something that will fit the bill. Christian Lee hosts the likes of ‘21st Century Troubadour’ Steve Aruni and his robot band, unicycling ‘boylesquer’ Adriano Fettucini and ‘Card Ninja’ Javier Jarquin. Click this link for details.

Room On The Broom | Stratford Circus | 2-18 Dec (pictured)
Yes, well, I know this isn’t strictly what you’d call a Christmas show, but it’s clearly on now in order to be a pre-Chrimbo treat for your little ones, and believe me, it will be magical, and magical is what you need to make festive. This slick Tall Stories adaptation of the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler has won praise and award nominations, and is generally all round lovely. Find all the details here.
