Comedian Mark Steel, well known from Radio 4, brings his stage show to The Exchange, Twickenham, on October 23 with a satirical view of the turmoil in both UK and international politics.

And he revels in the gloom with a sell-out show that promises to make the world seem even more mental than it is.

Families in the Forest[,B]

An interactive experience for families to explore the Orleans House grounds on Sunday – October 17 - through a series of encounters with inhabitants past and present.

Walking through the grounds children can encounter ancient trees, flowers, bats, moles, squirrels, even an antelope.

Each plant and creature offers an invitation to consider their experience in the space by changing our own.

For example, young bats seeing for the first time invite us to close our eyes and feel the surroundings with our hands, our fingers, our palms, to tread the ground, to summon colours into our imaginations, and when we open our eyes imagine we are emerging from a cave to encounter colour for the first time in our lives.
