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

The Brides Of Bluebeard | Camden People’s Theatre | 24-25 Sep (pictured)
Ever-excellent cabaret ensemble The Ruby Dolls present their latest show ‘The Brides Of Bluebeard’ as part of that old Calm Down Dear festival I keep going on about. It’s a contemporary take on the Bluebeard story, focusing on themes of power, control and female transgression. Expect something brilliant. And don’t worry too much if you can’t make it to these dates, they’ll be at Shoreditch Town Hall for a couple of nights at the end of the month. See this page here for info.

Femi Temowo – The Music Is The Feeling | Canada Water Culture Space | 24 Sep
Looks like this is turning out to be another tips collection with a bit of a festival feel, as I’m headed back to the previously tipped London African Music Festival for this one. If you know about jazz then you’ll no doubt know about Femi Temowo, acclaimed Nigerian-born British jazz guitarist, musical director, producer and broadcaster, and if you have any sense, you’ll be dying to head over to Canada Water to hear him play tracks from his new album, ‘The Music Is The Feeling’. Head this way for details.

Attached | Stratford Circus | 22-24 Sep
So, to be fair, this one isn’t part of a festival, so I am not going to claim it is. It will be spectacular though, so there’s that. This fast, funny circus piece is brought to you by Swedish company Magmanus, which is touring the UK for the first time after wowing audiences in mainland Europe. “An elaborate set up of seesaws, flying mats, a curved silver slide, Velcro balls and audience members create a sensational domino effect in the rousing finale”, promises the blurb. Sounds great, doesn’t it? See the venue website here.
