Not the Bohr you might think
Copenhagen – a serious play about the war-time meeting between two Nobel Prize-winning physicists, Denmark’s Niels Bohr and Germany’s Werner Heisenberg – might seem like a strange choice for Vivienne McKee at the London Toast Theatre, who every year bring us the Crazy Christmas Cabaret. But McKee has adapted Michael Frayn’s award-winning play to present a staged reading that is thought-provoking and encourages audience interaction. Starring Tony Wedgwood (Bohr), David Bateson (Heisenberg) and McKee (Margrethe Bohr), the play examines the moral responsibilities of scientists. With your help if you fancy it.

Danish Beatbox Championships
Beatboxing is a musical discipline that has yet to attain recognition as an independent form of expression. The recently formed Danish Beatbox Union (DBF) is, however, working on championing this cause locally and will be hosting an entertaining showcase of 16 of the nation’s slickest beat boxers, who have been selected on the basis of pre-sent video material. With rumours of a live stream of the event to a global audience rife, this is one show you’d like to say you had the pleasure of going to.
