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

COMEDY: Vikki Stone – Instrumental | Soho Theatre | 1-2 May
Vikki Stone has blagged, stolen and borrowed 20 musical instruments. Can she play them? You can’t see, but I’m screwing my face up and doing that wobbling-your-hand motion that signifies when something’s a bit hit-and-miss. What’s not hit-and-miss, however, is the show she has built around her playing of those instruments, in which each sparks a story that connects a tale of love, loss and music. Details and tickets here.

EVENT: London Coffee Festival | Old Truman Brewery | 30 Apr – 3 May
Sleeping, what’s that all about? I have no interesting in sleeping, which is why I’ll be at the London Coffee Festival this weekend sampling all 250 odd coffees on offer. Then I will tour the food stalls, barista demonstrations, workshops, cocktail bars, live music and more with eyes wide. Details and tickets here.

FILM: Frozen Sing-A-Long | Prince Charles Cinema | 26 Apr – 25 Jul (pictured)
It seems the appeal of singing the songs of Disney’s ‘Frozen’ has not worn off for a significant portion of the UK population, both children and adults. Thankfully, the Prince Charles Cinema is rounding all those people up and putting them in a room where they can sing along with the film without bothering the rest of us. Just kidding, I’m all for it. Do you want to build a snowmaaaaaaaaan? Details and tickets here.
