Few predicted the events of 2016. And even fewer seem to know where we are going. Mark Thomas sets out to discover what the future has in store for us by collecting and examining his own predictions and those of his audiences before gambling on their outcome. By making futurologists of us all, he will create a fantastical, hilarious and possibly accurate vision of the world. And maybe even make a few quid on the side.

22 July • Kathy Lette

661881“Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting, supportive and making each other look bigger and better.” So says Kathy Lette, funny, feminist author, who invites you to her new show, Girls’ Night Out.

It’s a psychological strip-tease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy-boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.

So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth and full frontal frankness, guaranteed. (Men, attend at your own risqué!)
