Nice Fish

Now that the entire world has woken up to the magnitude of Mark Rylance’s acting talents, the notoriously eccentric ex-Globe boss seems determined to balance out mainstream screen fare like ‘Wolf Hall’ and ‘Bridge of Spies’ with more, er, ‘eccentric’ stage work. Last year’s West End hit ‘Farinelli and the King’ had a curio-ish bent to it, and that goes does double for ‘Nice Fish’.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

JK Rowling’s new movie set in the wizarding world of Harry Potter is finally released this month, much to the delight of every single Potter fan in the country. But be warned: it's not a direct Hazza P sequel, spin-off or prequel. It’s a new story, set in the wizarding world but several decades earlier in 1920s New York. ‘The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the “Harry Potter” books,’ says Rowling. But that’s it.

This House


‘This House’ is a backroom, whips’-eye view of the relentless grind that was UK politics between 1974 and 1979. It was the period in which the hung parliament of February ’74 yielded to the miniscule Labour majority of October ’74, which in turn begat four years of political near-deadlock.

I'll be coming to London again this November and will be bringing a group of 8 ladies Christmas shopping to Westfields, Stratford. I'm wondering if there is anything going on this year as last year the race of champions was on and I was totally stuffed trying to get a stretched limo round some of the side streets.

Looking for 19th November 2016. If there's anything going can someone please post up.

Thank you in advance :)
