Last night I went along to a Finborough Forum. These are theatre discussions, produced by Andrew Haydon, held monthly at the Finborough Theatre. A panel of theatre people (last night Chris Campbell of the National Theatre, critic Ian Shuttleworth of the FT and playwright James Graham, author of Little Madam) discuss a given subject and engage with the audience, whose input and involvement is actively sought by writer and actor Jack Klaff, who chairs these events.
It was an interesting evening, informal and friendly, with a gratifying smattering of well-judged theatrical anecdotes from the panel and some eccentric contributions from the floor - all rounded off with a few drinks afterwards. If that's the sort of thing that appeals to you (as it does to me), I'd thoroughly recommend attending a future event.
