And nominate yourself (or somebody else if you still full of season’s spirt) to join their introduction to writing for the theatre.

If that really is a bit too energetic, you can of course go and see a play at Theatre503 and we will be covering the multi-award winning Cuzco by one of Spain’s most acclaimed young playwrights, Víctor Sánchez Rodríguez. Exploring intimacy in a globalised world, the UK premiere Cuzcois a revelation about the clash of colonial history and commercial tourism.

There’s a “golden brick” event happening towards the end of January at the new headquarters for Royal Academy of Dance in Battersea. We’ll be chatting to their President Dame Darcey Bussell who will be in attendance to mark this special milestone in the building of their new purpose-built headquarters.

With live music, horror and candy floss, Welcome to the UK tackles the migrant experience using satire to highlight the current hostile environment from the processes asylum seekers undergo when they arrive in this country, to how Brexit has affected the lives of European and British citizens alike. All happening at the Bunker Theatre.

Omnibus Theatre in Clapham will be hosting a series of plays and workshops exploring Well/Being. Spoken word, workshops, physical comedy are all going to play their part in this Well/Being Season and finish off with a panel discussion chaired by Chaired by Mayor of Lambeth, Christopher Wellbelove

ArtsWatch airs Monday, Tuesday and Thursday just after the 6.30pm news headlines.  You can also find us on Soundcloud/Wandsworthradio to listen again if you missed us live.

This is just a taster of the ArtsWatch programming we have lined up for January and we’ll be starting our new programmes w/c 7th January.
