Whether you are looking to get flexible or just looking for a laugh, there’s something for you in Balham this April.
Draw for good
When: 4th April
Where: Balham Bowls Club, SW12 8QX
Profits from this charity life drawing class will go to The Eve Appeal, a charity that aims to fund research and raise awareness in the five gynaecological cancers. Not only will you have a fun evening getting arty, but you’ll also be helping out an incredible cause.
Try your luck at karaoke
When: 6th April
Where: The Exhibit, SW12 9SG
Karaoke can be a risky game, but what about karaoke roulette?! Spin the wheel to determine the song you’ll be performing. Elton or Eminem, Taylor Swift or Take That, the power is in the wheel. All hosted by huge personality Harvey, AKA Queen of the Quiz, you’re in for a great time.
Go for a laugh
When: 7th April
Where: The Bedford, SW12 9HD
The Banana Cabaret shouldn’t be a new thing on your radar- it’s one of the UK’s longest running comedy clubs. But every time they really pull the line up out of the bag, and at the one on the 7th you can see Ian Stone, Paul F. Taylor, Abigail Carter-Simpson and Darran Griffiths.
Browse for goodies at the farmers’ market
When: 8th April
Where: Henry Cavendish Primary School, SW12 0JA
There can’t be a more wholesome way to start a weekend than with a trip to the farmers’ market. Stock up on fresh, locally produced goods and support small businesses whilst you’re at it.
Go for a really cute walk
When: 15th April
Where: Meet at Clapham South station, SW4 9AE
Balham’s Besties are going for a walk! Every third Saturday of the month a group of dog owners get together and walk from Clapham South tube to The Grove for breakfast. Great to make friends, walk the pooch and get some exercise too.
