London To Do List – 8–10 August
We’re back from a super-fun, super-busy trip to the Edinburgh Fringe – and we’re getting back into the London swing of things with this weekend To Do List!
Forget all that silly hurricane talk, and check out our London To Do List for this weekend…
Celebrate what would have been the 100th birthday of Tove Jansson, the author of Moomin!
Award-winning author Philip Ardagh will be reading extracts from some of his favourite Moomin books, Finnish entertainer Benny Törnroos will be performing the Moomin animated theme song accompanied by Moomin costume characters, plus there will be Moomins puppets from the Polka Theatre’s production “Moominsummer Madness”, Moomin face painting & MORE!
Usurped from its usual space on the south bank by the big red NT Shed, the popular Watch This Space Festival is on tour in and around Lambeth and Southwark until the end of August.
Boom & Bang Circus | The Hippodrome Casino | Friday, 11pm | £10-£20 – £2.50 Tickets Available on Explovia App
Kitty Bang Bang and Bioux Lee Hayes present “a late night cavalcade of exotic circus acts”, a nod to the Hippodrome Casino’s history but with a leaning towards new and greater excesses. Expect spectacular acrobatics, fire eating beauties, sideshow freaks, terrifying clowns and more!
Scottee’s Camp returns to the Roundhouse for a bumper edition. The Zimmers headline, supported by a whole host of show-offs including Tina C, Jess Love, Myra Dubois, Lorraine Bowen, The Winner of Baghdad’s Got Talent, Jayde Adams and Fagulous!
Plus, Japan’s People will be throwing shapes between acts, and a gang of youthful gender benders from Scottee’s Roundhouse drag school will be lip-synching like their lives depend on it!
