The Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas and Miranda’s Bo Poraj star in this comedic play about egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings. This will be the first UK tour for the show which has been adapted from award-winning French film and stage show Le Prénom by Brit theatre director Jeremy Sams.

THEATRE: The Night Watch

MUSIC: Wannabe – The Spice Girls Show
■ New Victoria Theatre, Woking ■ Thu 7 Nov

Calling all 90s kids! Stop right now, thank you very much – the Spice Girls are coming to Woking. Well, the ultimate tribute band is, but when the songs are this good who needs the real deal?

FESTIVAL: Camberley Food and Drink Festival
■ Park Street, Camberley ■ Thu 7 – Sat 9 Nov

It’ll be munch and tipples galore in Camberley come November with cooking demonstrations for adults and children alike, celebrity chefs and stalls and exhibitors at this year’s festival. Cheers!

MUSIC: Sarah McQuaid

FESTIVAL: 26th Woking Beer Festival
■ Woking Leisure Centre, Woking ■ Fri 8 – Sat 9 Nov

Bottom’s up! Take the opportunity to sample the finest ales, ciders and beers ahead of the festive season with this two-day event that is guaranteed to tickle to tastebuds. With live music and a wine bar for those less keen on beers, a fun day with friends is a done deal!

ART: The Contemporary Art Fair
■ Windsor Racecourse ■ Fri 8 – Sun 10 Nov

How cool is this? It makes a bold statement but perhaps not one for the kids’ bedrooms. Sculptor Steve Yeates’ fabulous figurative works will be on display at The Contemporary Art Fair, alongside more than 160 artists, printmakers, photographers, ceramicists and independent galleries from all over the UK and Europe. Have a mooch, chat to artists and, if you find something you love, prices start at just 40 quid.
