Sandi Toksvig Live: Richmond Theatre

Sunday 16 September

Tickets: From £19.50

If you haven’t heard of the hilariously funny Sandi Toksvig, you will recognise her. She’s been on shows ranging from Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week, QI and currently presents BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’ – and that’s just the start. Now she’s venturing into new territory, as she dusts off the microphone and takes part in her first major solo in years to celebrate the release of her new novel ‘Valentine Gray’. We highly recommend picking up the novel and heading down to the show, she’ll no doubt have you in stitches, and laughter is the best medicine.

Tree-athalon: Battersea Park

Saturday 15 September 2012

Tickets: Free to watch, £22 to race

An event focused on planting trees, which promises to be lots of fun, count me in. The Tree-athalon is a yearly event which you’ve no doubt heard of and if you haven’t, then this year is your time to get involved. With the day split into 3 parts, there’s no doubt something for everyone, even a chance to mingle with celebrities such as Alex James from Blur or even 80s pop star Sinitta. If that’s still not enough to whet your appetite then you’ll also be aiming to beat a world record! One held by tree-athalon anyway! Now who could say no to a bit of exercise and helping our environment?
