A trip to an iconic city is always a thrill, but if you’ve been before and already enjoyed all the traditional sights, try something a little different. Luckily, there are heaps of quirky, kooky things to do in London.


A 120-year-old working men’s club in East London is probably not the spot you’d expect to find a rip-roaring, riotous cabaret. But in Bethnal Green, this venue’s zany live entertainment pulls the punters in droves, like the spectacular Wicked Cycles a kinky comedy about PMS and the joys of womanhood with sassy artistes Apple Tart, Anais Lalange and Mistress Absolute. Or Mariah And Friendz, the resident monthly act, described by Time Out as, “The best damn drag-circus-burlesque show in town.” With shades of Mariah Carey, this OTT feast of queerness, campness and acrobatics features in-your-face performers Crystal Beth, Le Strange and Baby Lame. Tickets from $7 to $35.

Everyone has their favourite super sleuth: Columbo, Kojak, Inspector Morse or perhaps the go-to-granny of crime, mystery writer Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote. The latter, now a cult favourite, has a new lease of life with interactive episode screenings, where fans try to solve the crimes. This evening of fun and frolics, which are in London’s legendary gay pub, the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (and other similar sites around the country), are the brainchild of uber-fan and award-winning playwright, Tim Benzie. Highlights of the evenings include a sing-along to the theme tune (with brand new lyrics), and clips and bios of the campy guest stars – ranked on the very scientific Fame-O-Meter! Tickets from $8.50 to $17.
