nut_poster_11nut by debbie tucker green | The Shed, National Theatre | Until 5 December | Tickets from £10

‘nut’ is the jewel in the Shed’s crown, debbie tucker green is a game-changing voice in theatre. She creates real characters with real stories in real language, be sure to grab a ticket before they sell out.

columbianSounds from Columbia | British Museum | 8th November 2013 | Free

This is a great chance to discover British Museum’s incredible ‘Beyond El Dorado: power and gold in ancient Colombia’ exhibition and also get the added bonus a free evening of Colombian music and dance.

1381941_547884788623263_211140640_nDeath Ship 666 | Leicester Square Theatre | Until 5 December | Tickets from £10

Our only 5 Star Review at the Edinburgh Fringe this year was for this brilliant Titanic parody. A great cast of performers play multiple  characters, struggling to save/destroy the fine (or not so) Death Ship 666! A story you’ll know well, completely turned on its head, and performed with confidence and conviction usually reserved for an RSC production of Hamlet.

Blackheath FireworksBlackheath Fireworks | November 2 | 8pm | FREE

Our favourite firework display in London, kindly funded by the taxpayers of Lewisham (including us!). Spectacular explosions in the sky – you know, fireworks. Whizz, bang, pop, the lot!

night talesNight Tales | Dalston | From 7 November (6 Weeks Only) | FREE

A six week celebration of experimental cocktail culture, gastronomy and night culture!

Night Tales takes a disused East London car park and WW2 bunker and transforms them into a charming winter hang out. A carefully programmed combination of live music and food – amongst those taking up residency are Seth Troxler, NTS Radio DJ’s, Smokey Tails , Bao, and Patty & Bun plus many more…

herman-ze-german-launch-dayWork In Progress | Herman ze German | 4, 11, 18 & 25 November | £5

A ‘Work in Progress’ comedy series featuring world-class comedians in an informal and personal setting – Herman ze German, purveyors of some of the finest German sausages to be served out of the motherland!
