There are so many benefits of living in Wimbledon, not only is it one of the most desirable places to live in the UK because of its great schools, beautiful parks, shops, café culture and its proximity to London but also because there is always so much on in Wimbledon. This month there is a really diverse range of events coming up, for people of any age group, here are our favourite picks:
Running this weekend is Nipt at the Polka Theatre, a show about two neighbours who are too big for their house, they have to live/act in really cramped conditions. Nipt packs in the laughs as two flexible performers squeeze, twist and contort into some very tight corners, exploring observations from everyday life. It’s suitable for everyone aged 6 and upwards for more information please visit the Polka Theatre website.
Happy Harry’s Cafe at the Polka Theatre
Happy Harry serves great soup at his café. It’s so deliciously good that his friends – Matt the Cat, Jo the Crow, Ryan the Lion and Robin the Robin – all rush to get there before it runs out. But today something’s wrong with Matt – he says the soup’s no good. What is Harry going to do?
