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

Tricksterland | Soho Theatre | 23 Oct
“There is a place where that which is broken can be mended; thoughts can be heard; old bones speak; and rocks want revenge… In Trickster’s wonderland a man mimics a waterfall and almost gets away with it, a woman hides her doll-sized sister in her plaited hair, and we all journey to the edge of the earth.” Wonderful storytelling from the talented Nell Phoenix, see this page here for all the info.

Billy Bragg & Friends Present a Night for Helen & Barry | New Wimbledon Theatre | 23 Oct (pictured)
This fundraising event has an utterly wow-some line up, one might even call it a talent overload. The brilliant Robin Ince is the host for the evening, which will include performances from Billy Bragg, Mark Thomas, Charlotte Church, James Acaster, Josie Long, Hollie McNish, Grace Petrie, Chris Stokes and Alistair Barrie. Proceeds are to help fund Helen Crimmins’ cancer treatment, as well as to go to other cancer charities, head this way to book your tickets, and this way for more information on the event.

Geek Chic’s Weird Science Presents: The Science Of Vampires | Soho Theatre | 23 Oct
And now we are going back over to Soho Theatre (there are often two one-off shows that I want to tip being performed on the same day) for something with a bit of a Hallowe’eny theme, this special live recording of the Geek Chic’s Weird Science podcast. A look at whether vampires really exist, how they came to exist in popular culture, and the question of whether drinking blood can really make us younger… erm… click here for details.
