Are you a rave-loving, theatre-going, Swedish food enthusiast? No? Well the chances are you’re at least one of those things. In which case pop-up theatre specialists Theatre Delicatessen’s new show could be for you. Taking place in the basement of the old building they’re currently squatting in in Farringdon, ‘The Development’ is an immersive sound performance of beats, chants, vocal harmonies with some darkly comic theatrical characters thrown into the mix.Part theatre show, part club night, part ‘aural experience’, it’s the brainchild of company SoundBoxed Collective who has transformed the underground space (once the design headquarters of fashion god Alexander McQueen) into a perfect party place. The after-show shindig – DJs, music, bar – continues until 1am. And if that isn’t enough of a smorgasbord, then how about an actual smorgasbord? Over November and December pop-up restaurant Skandilicious will be open for lunch and dinner (with a bar open till 1am) above ground in the same building. The slightly steep £45 cost of a meal (the show and meal don’t come together, so you’ll have to book each separately – or just head to one or the other) includes a welcome drink then all-you-can-eat Swedish chow. Because you can never have too much pickled herring.

‘The Development’ runs Thu, Fri, Sat at 8.15pm, Nov 13-Dec 21, £12, £10 concs, theatredelicatessen.co.uk. Head to skandilicious.co.uk to book some Swedish delights.
