Craft beer, secret yoga and King Lear With Sheep (yes, sheep). This weekend, that’s only for starters
EVENT: Bloody Marys & Board Games at Drink Shop & Do We love Drink Shop & Do. It combines our three favourite things: drinking (cocktails, bubbles, punch), shopping (quirky-cool homewares by independent designers) and doing (building Lego robots, playing musical bingo, messing about with clay…). But this weekend, we love it EVEN MORE. Why? Because it’s easing sore Sunday heads with a day of well-crafted bloody Marys and classic board games. There’s no better way spend the day after the night before – because as everyone knows, there is no hangover that cannot be cured by Buckaroo. 16 August, 10.30am-8pm 9 Caledonian Road, King’s Cross N1 9DX drinkshopdo.com
THEATRE: King Lear With Sheep
‘Whaat?’ we hear you cry. But this is just what it sounds like: King Lear. With Sheep. ‘No really, whaat?’ we still hear you insist – but we’re not pulling the, er, wool over your eyes (sorry). Director Missouri Williams really has found the 12 finest thespians the Vauxhall City Farm has to offer and is letting them loose at the Courtyard Theatre, starring in this modern play inspired by the Shakespearean classic. And better yet, they’re in TINY COSTUMES! ‘But why?’ you might ask next. To which we’d reply: well, it’s surely what the Baaa-rd would have wanted (we really are very sorry).
12-16 August; £10 The Courtyard Theatre, Bowling Green Walk, 40 Pitfield Street N1 6EU
