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

The Reluctant Dragon | The Cockpit | 21 Oct
If you’re a parent, you might be thinking about ways to make the half term special for your small persons. Or, at the very least, bearable for you. So here’s one possible option, a fab family-orientated staging of the short story of the same name by Kenneth Grahame. Great for kids, but this is the sort of thing that will really entertain the adults as well. Click here for info.

Aditi Mittal – Global VIllage Idiot| Soho Theatre | 14-28 Oct
Indian comedian Aditi Mittal returns to the Soho Theatre with a new show, fresh from a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the release of a Netflix comedy special, ‘Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say’. In ‘Global Village Idiot”, she explores “how her place in our global village makes her feel she belongs nowhere and everywhere at the same time”. See the venue website here for details.

The Dream Factory | Greenwich Theatre | 21-22 Oct (pictured)
Another one for the children, this time a lovely sensory puppet show about a young girl who has lost her ability to dream, giving audiences an opportunity to embark on a magical adventure to find out about dreams – where they are made, what they look and even smell like. Sounds fab, see this page here for more.
