Mamma mia… it is indeed World Pasta Day, so I guess deciding what to have for tea tonight just became slightly easier. Choosing a perfectly al dente culture excursion to suit your tastes needn’t be any less so, so take a glance at several notable options happening this evening…


Dr Clive’s Circus – The Bare Necessities, Jacksons Lane, 25 – 27 Oct
TW favourite Dusty Limits, Thomas Nelstrop and Rayguns Look Real Enough headline three respective nights of Dr Clive’s dark and diverse cirque du cabaret romp. Contortion, music, burlesque, fire-dancing and high-wire feats are also part of the programme, as also features trusted troupe stars Freya Watson, Carlo Jacucci, Audacity Chutzpah and swing band Uberkaboom. All relevant info via this link.


Impropera & Not So Silent Movies – Fright At The Opera, Hall Two, Kings Place, 25 Oct
Outre music troupe Impropera supply instruments and voices for a scary special edition of cellist/ad hoc cinema score specialist Phillip Sheppard’s Not So Silent Movies. So basically, they all compose on-the-spot original scores to a series of silent horror films. Sounds ‘Nosferatu’ good to be true.

Zombie Horror Camp, Old Vic Tunnels, 25-27 Oct
Delve into a Pandora’s box of hellish(ly good) tricks n treats at the Old Vic’s adults-only Zombie Horror Camp this pre-Halloween weekend, as organisers raise a nightmare array of DJ sets, games, cocktails and crafts. Oh, and an undead disco and a “grotesque strip club”. So, that’s nice. All-inclusive day tickets here.


NSFW, Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at The Royal Court, 25 Oct – 24 Nov (pictured)
ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood’s first solo script for the Royal Court’s Jerwood Downstairs stage, ‘NSFW’ points its provocative lens at privacy and power play in the media biz. Julian Barratt of ‘The Mighty Boosh’ leads a cast-list also featuring Janie Dee, Kevin Doyle, Sacha Dhawan, Esther Smith and ‘Posh’ boy Henry Lloyd-Hughes.
