Some lovely news for a sunny bank holiday Monday: I have been asked to perform at The Litmus Test night next Thursday.

Do you like science? Do you like open mic nights? Do you like science themed open mic nights? Well, you’re in luck. The Litmus Test is a new monthly performance showcase and open mic night for poets, filmmakers, playwrights, musicians, comedians and anyone else with a talent for all things creative.

The theme this week is Health and Safety so I’ll be taking a bit of creative license with the topic to talk about healthy minds and healthy bodies. The night is taking place at the Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green (21 Old Ford Rd, E2 9PL), doors open at 7.30pm and you can reserve your place here, although there is no entrance fee.
