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

The Snowman | Peacock Theatre | 25 Nov-3 Jan
You have to stop being in denial now. Yes, I know that Christmas is still a month off, but the fact is, it’s only a month off. And if you are going to have a lovely pre-seasonal show trip then you need to get it done before all the tickets run out. Anyway, it wouldn’t matter if they put this on in June, I’d still recommend it, because it’s lovely and gives you that warm lovely Christmas-in-your-belly feeling that you deserve all year round. Plus, it’s a big, fab, show, and you know you want it. Tickets and info from here.

Ross Noble – An Evening Of Improv With Special Guests | Soho Theatre | 26 Nov
On the Soho website, the blurb for this show calls Ross Noble “one of the most popular stand up comedians of our time”, and I reckon they’re probably entirely correct about that. He’s certainly been one of the most popular stand-up comedians in my house for a good decade or so. So, you surely won’t miss the opportunity to see this national treasure doing what he does best. Also on on 3 and 10 Nov. See the venue website here for more info.

The Ballad Of Robin Hood | Southwark Playhouse | 26 Nov-26 Dec (pictured)
Talking of blurbs (as I did in the previous tip), on the event page for this show, you’ll find words like rollicking and rambunctious, so that’s me sold already. Plus, I am going through a bit of a loving-historical-or-myth-based-media phase at the moment. Sorry if you aren’t going through such a phase, but I doubt you will be sorry about taking the time to go and see this – it promises “swordplay, songs, sheriffs and satire” and sounds extremely family-friendly if it’s a family with children aged 7+. More info and tickets from this page here.
