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

Family Dance Day | The Place | 21 Jul
This looks rather exciting, a full day of dance focused events over at The Place, all aimed at families. There are some great looking shows and workshops, and as well as ticketed stuff, there’s a host of free events to take advantage of, and it all seems like a brilliant way to keep little ones occupied this Saturday. See this page here for an overview as well as links to all the different events.

Splinter | King’s Head Theatre | 21 Jul
“How much are we defined by the people who surround us? And what do we become when those people disappear? Ellie and Joules are best friends. All consuming, obsessive, possessive best friends. Inseparable. That is, until Joules gets her dream job on the other side of the world. Jealousy, betrayal and a dramatic dinner-time explosion over sea bass pushes Ellie to the edge. Splinter is the story of a friendship, both when it’s there and when it ceases to be.” More from King’s Head Theatre’s Playmill strand, see this page here to book.

Weird | Theatre503 | 21-22 Jul (pictured)
And finally today, a pick from Theatre503’s line up of Edinburgh previews, and this one’s a play by Lucy Burke, who you may be aware of as the writer of the rather successful ‘Glitter Punch’. ““But I’m not depressed, and that’s what mentally ill people are right? Depressed? And I’m not depressed I’m just more aware of danger than most other people and how has it got this far?” Yasmin feels different, she feels weird. She longs to be normal like everyone else but that’s proving to be quite difficult…” All the info right about here.
