Fright Nights
■ 
Thorpe Park ■ various dates throughout Oct

Thorpe Park’s Fright Night boasts more terror than ever before with new horror experiences, attractions, and even more scares. It’s the perfect event to get you in the mood for Halloween, so grab your tickets… if you dare. thorpepark.com

The Real Thing
■ The Rose Theatre, Kingston ■ until Sat 14 Oct

Get up close and personal with the foxy Laurence Fox in this steamy production written by Tom Stoppard and directed by Stephen Unwin.

Guildford Book Festival

Surreys largest book festival returns for its 28th year to a new location- Guildford Cricket Club.

Arlene: The Glitz, The Glamour, The Gossip – CANCELLED
■ Camberley Theatre ■ Thurs 12 Oct

Arlene Phillips was famously one of the toughest judges on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing – and then more famously was not a judge on Strictly when she was unceremoniously replaced by the younger and (let’s just say it) far less qualified Alesha Dixon. She spills the beans on this, and more, in her new show. camberleytheatre.biz

Legally Blonde
■ New Victoria Theatre Woking ■ Mon 9 to Sat 14 Oct

Blondes have more fun! And Elle Woods, a pink and pooch obsessed sorority girl, is certainly no exception. After her boyfriend Huntingdon 111 breaks up with her for someone more serious and suited to his endeavours in politics, Elle ventures out to Harvard to try win him back. OMG! After Eurovision singer Lucie Jones’ previous run of Legally Blonde at Leicester Curve, she returns to the starring role. Soap stars Rita Simmons and Bill Ward are also part of the cast. Get a group of your girlfriends together and I promise you won’t be able to stop singing the soundtrack for days after. atgtickets.com
