If you thought improv was just about comedy, then think again! Completely created by audience suggestions and inspired by the works of the greatest horror storytellers of all time, such as Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft and Mary Shelley, this disturbingly brilliant show explores the thin line between comedy and horror; our world and the next…

The show is brought to Wilton’s by the pioneers of British improvised theatre, and creators of the Olivier award-winning international smash hit Showstopper! The Improvised Musical and Ken Campbell’s School Of Night. There will also be spooky pre-show entertainment in the bar from 7.15pm with music, puppetry and magic galore, and audience members are positively encouraged to come in their finest Halloween attire.

Dates: 31st October
Time: 8pm – 9:10pm (no interval)
Tickets:  £8 – £12
Ages: 14+

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
