Adults and children alike will be thrilled to learn that Slava Polunin is returning to London with his highly acclaimed Snowshow. Opening with the clown's startling discovery of life instead of death at the end of a hangman's noose, the mimed show continues in tragi-comic style, climaxing with a breathtaking snowstorm, complete with giant juggling balls and music from Carmina Burana. Polunin captivates the audience's childish excitement, while embodying the traditional clown's melancholy joy. If you have never seen it, book now, as those who have already been are bound to go back for more

The self-proclaimed "lesbian trapped in a man's body" prepares himself to Dress to Kill. For one night only, Eddie Izzard (above) dons his glad rags and struts his stuff in a show which he's previously only performed in America. Famous as much for his painted mouth as the jokes which come out of it, Izzard will be entertaining thousands at Wembley Arena, including HRH, The Prince of Wales, as he raises funds for The Prince's Trust. The remaining tickets are already on the wane, so you'll need to get in quick to get a seat.
