Timberlina presents FFS!!
This weekend the extraordinary Timberlina presents FFS!! – a brand new glittering alt-drag, rock ‘n’ roll eco-show for a vexed generation. There are shows on Friday (4 Nov), Saturday and Sunday at the Camden People’s Theatre. This is Timberlina’s hilarious and frank testament to the bewildering contradictions of trying to be a good person, escaping city life and what it means to embrace a stoic and sustainable existence. All framed around a collection of original, joyously profane songs about eco-woe and fitting in. Tickets at cptheatre.co.uk
Winterville is coming
From Saturday 23 November Clapham Common will be getting some extra sparkle as Wintervillie opens its doors. Described as ‘London’s alternative festival experience’ it’s going to be a glorious mix of clubs, such as Sink The Pink and Little Gay Brother, amazing cabaret, food stalls, a cinema, Christmas market and even an ice rink. Some of the festival is free and some events are ticketed – get all the details at winterville.co.uk
Caroline Reid goes Rawr
This December Caroline Reid, the woman who stands just behind the all powerful Pam Ann, is stepping off the plane and the uniform and bringing a brand new stand up show to London. Rawr is on at the Leicester Square Theatre from 20 December for four nights and tells the real story of the woman behind the legend, and we suspect this will not be for the faint hearted. Tickets are on sale now at leicestersquaretheatre.com
