Frank Skinner: Man In A Suit

Frank Skinner is back with a brand-new live show. Frank Skinner famously won the 1991 Perrier Award ahead of fellow legends Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard, but is probably best-known for his TV shows alongside David Baddiel. After starring in his own chat show and self-penned sitcoms he decided to return to the stand-up comedy circuit.

This event is over

The Wind in the Willows - Duchess Theatre

"The Wind in the Willows" follows the adventures of Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger on the cool and leafy riverbank. But the peace and serenity is rocked by a speeding car, a galloping caravan, a racing train and criminal deeds cooked up in the depths of the Wild Wood. Will Tuckett's production of the Royal Opera House ballet brings all the magic of Kenneth Graham's classic tale to the stage. With theatrical choreography and a wonderful score, it is perfect family entertainment.
Canary Wharf

Outdoor ice rink, at Canary Wharf

The outdoor ice rink at Canary Wharf has a spectacular backdrop, sitting in the shadow of London's tallest building -- the skyscraper at Canada Square. This rink has an interesting little feature that sets it apart from the others -- a skate path that allows you to leave the main rink and glide past the fir trees and fairy lights that line the perimeter of the park.
