Bill Bailey

Portly-and-proud astrologist to the stars Russell Grant is hosting a couple of ‘Strictly’ Christmassy carolling matinees at the Royal Albert Hall, and the first – as features special guest star Russell Watson – transpires today at 2.30pm precisely. If that’s to your taste, select a spare seat here. But if – on the off chance – it isn’t, here’s an array of London’s cultural alternatives…


Racing Minds – Aaaand Now For Something Completely Improvised 2012, Aces & Eights, 18 Dec
Long-form improv quartet Racing Minds play for smart ad-hoc laughs as part of a two-date London stopover, tickets guaranteeing a vantage point for which can be purchased here.

Bill Bailey – Qualmpeddler, Hammersmith Apollo, 18 Dec (pictured)
The mighty Bill Bailey invites stress-prone Londoners to savour a troubled broth of apprehension, folk bouzouki and religious dubstep, asking such things as whether the Spice Girls reuniting fulfils a Mayan End Of Days prophecy. Probably. Tickets here.


Michael Rosen – Bear Hunt And Chocolate Cake, Pleasance Theatre, 18-23 Dec
Kindly kids’ laureate Michael Rosen reads (and in certain cases, re-enacts) a charming catalogue of poems, rhymes, gags and musical numbers for an all-ages audience. Tickets here.
