What to see this week





Roll up for Barnum!

Step right up and enter the dazzling world of PT Barnum, where imagination and ambition know no bounds. The Watermill’s Barnum summer spectacular continues until September 8. Delight at every sight, wonder and miracle as the creator of spectacle comes to town with a sensational show featuring a whole host of characters. Hand in hand with wife Charity, Barnum’s life and career twists and turns as he schemes and dreams his way to headier heights. However, the irresistible pull of an ever-bigger humbug comes at a cost, and the people paying are usually those on whom Barnum tramples, on the way to the top. https://www.watermill.org.uk/

Special guests opening the evening are Reading duo Tomorrow Bird making their return to ACE Space. Jen Bird is former theatre actress who has performed lead roles in Jesus Christ Superstar and The King & I before being bitten by the songwriting bug. Simon Driscoll began his musical journey as a classical pianist before becoming the frontman of folk-rock band Burnt Tomorrow.
