Cabaret Mechanical Theatre

One of the joys of London is finding the most wonderful and quirky events.
Cabaret Mechanical Theatre is one of my best finds. See a man who eats his own weight in spaghetti in the bath, a monkey rowing a banana, a performing circus and dozens of others.

Fun from another era, beautifully preserved. The best bit is that you can play with them. Push the buttons and watch them perform. I loved the drinking woman above. Sums up just how I felt by the time I finished the accounts yesterday.

Best news is that you can see them and push the buttons yourselves. Showing at Space Station 65 in East Dulwich until 7 September.

That's the kind of crazy stuff I'd enjoy, too. Must be nice. In this country, these days, someone would find it to be insulting and the authorities would shut it down.

We celebrate freedom here today but need to remember freedom can be elusive when challenged by those who hear some god speaking in their heads.

I'd feel like a kid again making all these contraptions perform.

This is the best bit about living in a big city like London, the awesome quirks! Love it. Makes me want to get out to East Dulwich on the next trip.
