Not much usually happens on Wednesday does it? Well that’s where you’re wrong – here are the three best things in east London to get you through “hump day”.
1. Have fun at Fanny’s
The title alone may raise a few titters from younger viewers, but 1956 comedy Fun at Fanny’s will have the kids roaring with laughter, as a young Ronnie Corbett is at the centre of classroom capers. It’s being screened as part of the BFI’s summer film initiative so yes, it’s free.
6pm, Canada Square Park.
2. Have a ball with Tommy
Based on the iconic 1969 double album rock opera, The Who’s Tommy is coming to Greenwich.
An exhilarating story of hope, healing, and the human spirit. The story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years, and you now have the chance to witness him play a mean pinball. Tickets are £15.
7.30pm, Greenwich Theatre
3. Have a brightened-up lunchtime
Canada Square Park’s summer stage is hosting a live acoustic music from emerging artists as you enjoy your break in Canada Square Park. This variety of artists performing live is the perfect musical accompaniment for your time out of the office. An upbeat and fun band that combine classical, jazz and pop into all things brass. It’s free too, leaving you more pocket money to spend on sandwiches.
12.30pm-2pm, Canada Square Park
