Goodbye Christopher Robin, Westlands, Sun 12–Mon 13 Nov

Sheila Sund CC

The story of AA Milne’s famous book and the effect it had on the son who inspired it –  and it wasn’t all skipping through 100 acre wood without a care in the world.

Desert Island Discs Live: Michael Eavis, McMillan Theatre, Bridgwater, Weds 15 Nov

Could be interesting: the man behind Somerset’s – nay, the world’s – most iconic music festival reveals his favourite songs and talks about how they link to his life and the festival. With a live interpretation of each track by members of the Somerset Rural Youth project’s Rural Music Network.

A couple of Russian-themed operas to celebrate the centenary of the Russian Revolution (how else will you be marking the occasion?) – Eugene Onegin and From the House of the Dead. They’re throwing in a bit of old Vienna, Die Fledermaus, too.

Shazia Mirza: With Love from St Tropez, Curzon Cinema & Arts, Clevedon, Fri 17 Nov

Award-winning stand up’s latest tour takes in Ankara, Zurich, San Francisco …and Clevedon (well impressed, you guys at the Curzon!).  Her new show deals with lies, lies and more lies – the truth is so 1980s, right?

Bath on Ice, Royal Victoria Park,  Bath, Fri 17 Nov – Tues 2 Jan

Outdoor ice skating – and glow in the dark mini golf – in the centre of Bath. Take the weight off your skates in the Moguls Alpine bar and cafe and scoff pizzas and fries (not chips, you notice).
