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

We Are Brontë | Vault Festival | 1-5 Feb (pictured)
I thought we’d have another Vault Festival day today, because it’s just so blooming marvellous and full of fabulous stuff I want to tip. Starting with this, ‘We Are Brontë’ a hilarious slice of physical theatre. I used to be obsessed with the Brontës, back in the day, and I take them very seriously indeed. But I’d still like to see this comedic and eccentric take on their story. See the Vault Festival website here for more info.

A Hundred Different Words For Love | Vault Festival | 1-5 Feb
If you saw the excellent James Rowland performing ‘Team Viking’ at the Edinburgh Festival this summer, you will no doubt be in a rush to see this too, because, as you might expect, having read this far, it’s also by him. “I’m aware there isn’t much art made about love,” he says, “so I thought I’d wade in and nail the definitive article before anyone else tried to”. Ha ha. See this page here for details.

Happily Never After | Vault Festival 1-5 Feb
A dark and twisted Tim Burton/Brothers Grimm-inspired musical tale courtesy of master improvvers The Maydays. A different show every time, based on an audience suggestion, featuring a cinematic soundtrack, and of course, darkly comic, physically dynamic performances from one of your favourite improv troupes.
