When Lucy was in the 3rd Croydon Brownies, she thought she was being taught everything she’d need to succeed in life. All a girl required to stay safe and sound was an emergency 10p for the phone box, a length of string and a penknife. Now there are no phone boxes, and carrying a knife is generally frowned upon. Now she is faced with working out what her own kids need to equip them for the modern world. Her show Be Prepared is at the Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on Thursday, October 7.

His rescheduled date arrives at the Theatre Royal Margate on Saturday, October 9.
Andy says: “I was in the middle of a UK tour when theatres had to close due to lockdown – and the tour was called Healing The Nation – so that title worked out well. I could have changed the title but it still seems strangely appropriate – and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said Healing the Nation, but the show was now called My Life in Ballet."

Following his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom and the return to No.1 of his seminal football anthem Three Lions, David Baddiel is with Trolls: Not The Dolls.
Trolls – the terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than to fill the huge gaps in their souls. There is a common wisdom about how to deal with trolls: don’t, for goodness sake, encourage these people by replying to them. He brings the show to the Churchill Theatre, Bromley, on Thursday, October 7. To book tickets at £31.50, go to the theatre's website here.
