Brighton Fringe: The week ahead…

Why, only last night I headed over to the Hendrick’s Library of Delightfully Peculiar Writings to take in a poetry slam, and a gin or two!

There were some great poems on show, covering everything from charity shops, to train encounters and two about having a wee. Congratulations to Lisa Jayne who was a worthy winner and went home with £100 and a free bottle of gin!

However, as hard as it is, I must tear myself away from the rose and cucumber infused libations and make the most of this last week at Brighton Fringe. With only five days left, my schedule is bulging with shows and events that I need to cram in.

There’s some excellent comedy still left to see, with Mark Steel, Luisa Omielan and Mace and Burton’s Rom Com Con the three that I’m particularly excited about.

Then of course, we have Bourgeois and Maurice coming to town with their friends Dr Brown and Jonny Woo for two nights of cabaret oddities and musical comedy that are sure to thrill.

I will also be taking in some more serious, but equally excellent shows, with The Oh F**k Moment at The Nightingale – described as a conversation around a desk for brave souls to hold their hands up and admit they f**ed up – and also This Time Tomorrow, an intimate piece of theatre involving four scenarios, four couples and four cars.

And if all of that wasn’t enough, we also have the very exciting Hanging Gardens of Brighton (which was already mentioned yesterday, I know). This mini festival within a festival will be a great way to celebrate the end of Brighton Fringe 2012 with a bang!
