FILM: Bechdel Test Fest | various venues | 23-26 Mar
This ongoing year-long celebration of films that pass the Bechdel Test – two named female characters must have a conversation about something other than a man, something surprisingly few films manage – this week sees four events take place around London. Screenings of ‘Appropriate Behaviour’, ‘Fish Tank’, ‘Tiny Furniture’, and the utterly brilliant ‘Wadjda’ will be accompanied by Q&As, debates and more. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC/COMEDY: Teenage Cancer Trust Shows | Royal Albert Hall | 23-29 Mar
Marking the fifteenth anniversary of the Teenage Cancer Trust’s first fundraising show at the Royal Albert Hall, there’s a hefty programme of music across this now week-long event. Musical headliners are Stereophonics, Van Morrison, The Who, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, and Frank Turner. Tomorrow night there’ll be a break from the music with a comedy bill headlined by Kevin Bridges. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Radioman | King’s Head Theatre | 23 Mar – 6 Apr (pictured)
Actor Felix Trench brings his one-man show ‘Radioman’ to the King’s Head for three shows, with the first tonight. “A story of canals, eternity and the Radioman”, it features original music by David Knight. Details and tickets here.
