Stressed? Lethargic? Perplexed as to what to do today in London? All three? Have no fear; this capital Sunday special will help…


Queer Britannia, Tate Britain, 30 Jun
As a postcript to this year’s Pride celebrations, writer/critic Cherry Smyth and Polari Magazine‘s Michael Langan throw an arty after-party at the Tate; casting a learned glance over the gallery’s LGBT-based attractions, not least Lord Frederic Leighton’s 1887-dated bronze ‘An Athlete Wrestling With A Python’. Details and tickets here.


Sunday Cabaret presents… Tricity Vogue, The Round Table, 30 Jun
An “essential part of the Fringe cabaret scene” (says ThreeWeeks) since year dot, salacious ukulele lady Tricity Vogue airs her dirty life-laundry and sings songs to match one of her ‘calamitous liaisons’. Oh dear. Still, her loss is our gain. Details and tickets here.


Richard Gadd – Cheese And Crack Whores, Hen & Chickens Theatre, 30 Jun
Representing the ‘Gadd’ bit in sketch trio Gadd, Kirk and Winning, ‘sharp-as-spoons’ Scottish comic Richard Gadd stages this titillatingly-titled solo show based on seven really, really bad days-in-the-life. His life. Details and tickets here.


Jette Parker Young Artists Summer Performance, Royal Opera House, 30 Jun
Tomorrow’s opera stars are in the ROH today, enacting scenes from ‘Die Zauberflöte’, ‘L’elisir d’amore’, ‘Eugene Onegi’n and ‘La rondine’; a Donizetti duet; and Mozart’s paradisiacal aria ‘Ch’io mi scorda di te’. Details and tickets here.
