Comedy takes to the pods
The tourist attraction is being taken over for a host of music, comedy and theatre productions next Thursday, with the likes of Damon Albarn, Beth Orton and the National Theatre all taking part.
There will be a total of 96 shows – and punters who buy the £21 tickets won’t know which one they’ll get until their pod comes around.
Stand-up Robin Ince, who’ll be hosting a special mini version of his London Book Club night in one of the pods, said: "Due to a fear of bracelets and an allergy to coffee and bananas, it has been hard to demonstrate my belief in a world of fair trade (also T shirts make me look a bit bosomy), nevertheless creating a decent world where farmers and industries in Africa are not crushed by big business and devious Western governmental manipulations is something I am quite keen on...and not just because it makes Daily Mail columnists puce "
