You've seen the propaganda on the tube and now you can see it for reals. La Clique is the Edinburgh cult hit now firmly set in its London home of Leicester Square’s historic Hippodrome.
Acts includes: Norwegian contortionist Captain Frodo; Spanish stripper Ursula Martinez; Germany’s David O’Mer (pictured), who has re-invented the pleasures of a nice soak in the tub; hula hoopist Yulia Pikhtina from Kiev; the English Gents performing their inconceivable feats of human strength and skill; London’s own PVC-clad fetishist Miss Behave; the puppets of Montreal’s Cabaret Decadanse; and New York alternative comedian and Freddy Mercury reincarnation Mario.

Klang - a tribute to Karlheinz Stockhausen, 1-9 November at the Southbank Centre.

Critical mass, a semi-protest, semi-party and always good fun bike ride last Friday of every month in London (and different regular dates all across the UK and the world). Meet from 6.00pm outside the National Theatre/BFI Southbank under Waterloo Bridge. Riders chat and meet each other for half an hour or so and then the ride sets off around London on an unplanned route for a couple of hours.
