Fitzrovia Radio Hour

What’s this? The last Wednesday of May, you say? No, it can’t be, and yet it is. If, as you say, this really is London’s last chance to savour that mid-week springtime frisson, it had best make the most of it. And this is how to do that, in three easy steps…


The Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s Fifth Birthday Show, The Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zedel, 29 May – 1 Jun (pictured)
If you aren’t familiar with the classy chaps and chicks over at 1950s-style wireless station Fitzrovia Radio Hour, imagine a live action cocktail of that ‘tickety-boo tasty’ Crabbies cider ad, mixed with BBC’s ‘The Hour’, and with a tart, lemony dash of ‘the bizarre’. Props, hats, wigs, weird effects, and the added occasion of the FRH’s fifth birthday will certainly serve to make this a memorable broadcast. Details and tickets here.


Laugh For The Lodge, Church House, 29 May
They’re a caring lot, tonight’s Laugh For The Lodge comics (that’s nearly-there Fosters nominees Josh Widdicombe and David Trent, linguistic whizz Jessica Fostekew and average ‘dude’ Nathaniel Metcalfe, since you asked). All will be donating their time and one-liners to paying patrons of this vital fundraising gala in aid of cancer care charity Cherry Lodge. Details and tickets here.


Paradise Lost, Trinity Buoy Wharf, 29 May – 22 Jun
Moving on from their last play at Trinity Buoy Wharf, the acclaimed (and TW London-featured) ‘Project Colony’, theatre co Fourth Monkey reimagine Milton’s heaven-and-hell epic ‘Paradise Lost’ in physically striking style. Details and tickets here.
