  • Cool stuff to do this weekend

    The Lipsinkers, The Firestation Arts Centre, Windsor, Sat 25 March Camp, cult and brilliantly bonkers… The Lipsinkers are transporting their unique and radical drag show to Windsor with its mix of showbiz insanity and queer political spoof.

      Bedroom Farce, Theatre Royal Windsor, until Sat 25 June Ooh, I do love a bit of fighting spirit, and even a flash flood a couple of weeks ago – flooding the corridors and front row of the Theatre Royal Windsor’s auditorium – can’t keep a good theatre down!
