Childish Things is an annual variety show at the New Theatre in Oxford. The shows raise money for Helen & Douglas House, hospices-cum-respite care centres for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions. Previous years have seen comedy stars such as Steve Coogan, Hugh Laurie, Jimmy Carr, Rob Brydon, Bill Bailey, Jo Brand and Sean Lock entertaining the crowds.

This year, Childish Things will host its first dedicated music night on Monday 27th February. Jamie Cullum, KT Tunstall, Eliza Doolittle, Beardyman, flamenco guitarist Rafael, Pete Lawrie, Oxford-based jazz artist Theo Jackson and our very own Bug Prentice are all lined up to entertain (or, in the case of Bug Prentice, baffle) the audience. Tickets are still available here. Come along if you can, it promises to be a great night of music for a wonderful cause.

For more information about Childish Things and how to book tickets for the regular comedy shows (be quick, they’re selling fast), visit the Helen & Douglas House site.
