Unmissable Things To Do In London in April 2017
We’re back with another epic DIY list of Things To Do In London to put a spring in your step this April!
This month’s top picks include circus spectacle, cheeky cabaret, musical hilarity, wacky weirdness, tasty grub, flirty fun, thinky theatre & much more…
The gorgeous former Granada cinema in Walthamstow opens its doors for live performance with a line up including the hilarious Clementine’s Fabulous Roadshow.
Don’t miss the main circus event in London in 2017 from Compagnie XY. Lyn Gardner from the Guardian says it’s ‘The rock’n‘roll circus where everything’s possible!’.
Alternative Miss World Winner and all round cabaret legend Fancy Chance brings her unique blend of offbeat comedy, original song, and outrageous film.
Outrageous fun at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club including a nono for those who suffer coulrophobia: a clowns special on April Fool’s Day and a MAYDAY SLAYDAY special on 30 April.
An unmissable night of light relief from 2017 all to a beat you can shake your money maker to. Ed Chappel’s Musical Comedy Awards has become a legendary event to celebrate an important and often underrepresented comedy genre. Join their host Tina T’urner Tea Lady for guffaws galore in the west end.
We’re never quite sure what to expect from Weirdos, except that it will be bonkers. This time it’s Stonehenge themed. Nuff said?
A comedy raffle from the Janice Conolly’s hilarious alter-ego at the newly revamped Underbelly Festival on the South Bank.
Urban dance and culture takes centre stage at Southbank Centre. Join a free hip hop dance class or watch others shake their shimmy (safer but less fun). One highlight for us is Randolph Matthews Friday Tonic which is the perfect way to wonder toward the weekend.
Alternative performance has long needed a festival of SEX. And Camden People’s Theatre have willingly obliged. Don’t miss Wondering Hands’ night of Sex and Puppets.
Jamie Renton offers musical therapy with and eclectic mix of African, Latin, funk, soul, reggae, jazz, blues, Balkan and beyond. Listen to the mixcloud here to warm up your mind.
‘A show full of disco lights, smoke machines and beacons in the darkness. A DIY guidebook for a teenage journey through the pitch black Yorkshire night.’
This says it all:
‘A man and woman negotiate the use of a single toilet. Two visionaries celebrate the toilet as a testament to society. A revolution is brewing in Pootopia: the land where all Poos are created equal. ‘
This masterwerk comes from our faves Vacuum Theatre and shit ain’t smelled this good for years.
Walthamstow cocktail bar with a quirky style opens its doors. We can’t wait to try the Popcorn Punch which fuses Blackwell Jamaican Rum with lime, popcorn syrup, pineapple and a cheeky float of Overproof Gosling 151.
Em & Em know how to throw a wild and wonderful party. Journey into a subterranean wonderland (a member’s club for the surrealistically distinguished) as your favourite Hollywood character and emerge reborn.
