COMEDY: Sarah Kendall – Touchdown, Canal Cafe Theatre, 19 Feb (pictured)
The deserving winner of many an esteemed prize (not least the ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award-winner all the way back in 2007), the still-brilliant Sarah Kendall looks back on her decorated stint in an under-14s touch football team. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Poilu & Tommy, Courtyard Theatre, 19 Feb – 8 Mar
