LONDON SKETCH COMEDY FESTIVAL / AN AUDIENCE WITH AIMI MACDONALD – BOTH AT THE CINEMA MUSEUM
Fri 1st – Sun 3rd May : London Sketch Comedy Festival
Celebrating their 3rd birthday the London Sketch Comedy Festival will be taking on the glitz and glamour of early cinema and performing a takeover of The Cinema Museum for 3 days to present some of the best alternative comedy Britain has to offer. The festival’s biggest events will take place here: The Best New Act Competition (featuring 12 new and unsigned acts) and the Feature Series (showcasing the UK’s hottest comedy groups in 2015).
A festival celebrating the best up-and-coming writer-performers in comedy, London SketchFest is on a mission to spotlight the best young British comedic talent and bring it all to one place. From great new comedy acts that are just emerging to more established groups that are tearing up the live circuit and making name on TV and radio.

Thu 7th May : The Misty Moon Film Society Presents
An Audience With Aimi MacDonald
Since starting her career as a young dancer in Paris and Las Vegas “The Lovely” Aimi MacDonald proceeded to star in many stage, and television and film productions, working with big names such as John Cleese, Roger Moore, Ronnie Corbett, and the never-to-be-forgotten Les Dawson. Aimi’s vastly varied television career includes appearances in The Avengers, Man at the Top, The Saint, Man About the House, Dixon of Dock Green and Rentaghost.
Direct from a sell-out performance at The Pheasantry, London, Aimi will regale you with stories about her journey through life in and out of ‘the biz’ and, accompanied by her Musical Director Trevor Defferd, we may be lucky enough to have Aimi perform a few of her favourite songs.
Doors open at 19.30.
