The things you need to do over the next week

1 THE­ATRE | The Singing Hyp­no­tist

Part re­vival­ist meet­ing and part medicine show. Us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of clin­i­cal hyp­nother­apy, stage hyp­no­sis, orig­i­nal mu­sic and good old fash­ioned show­biz, Christo­pher Green’s char­ac­ter per­forms songs to heal, trans­form and put you un­der. The first artist in res­i­dence at the Bri­tish Li­brary, he is known for his com­edy cre­ations such as Tina C and Ida Barr and will an­swers ques­tions on hyp­no­sis af­ter the show.

2 EX­HI­BI­TION | Venom: Killer and Cure

Ex­plore fear and fas­ci­na­tion as you get up close to snakes, spi­ders and scor­pi­ons and dis­cover their deadly power. View more than 250 spec­i­mens and dis­cover how venom has trans­formed from a deadly weapon to a cure that is used in medicine today to save lives. They in­clude a 2.5m Ko­modo dragon and the world’s dead­li­est ants, more dan­ger­ous than a cobra.

Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum, Novem­ber 10 to May 13, £5-25.50, nhm.ac.uk

3 CLUB | Bongo’s Bingo

So Solid Crew will head­line the south London de­but of this show, which is part rave, part ex­pe­ri­en­tial odyssey and very much a night of bingo. Ex­pect sing-a-longs, false calls, nos­tal­gia, dance-offs, au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion and the chance to win prizes from Henry Hoovers to boxes of Coco Pops.

Print­works, Sur­rey Quays, Nov 9, doors 6pm, first game 8pm, bon­gos­bingo.co.uk

4 ART Made by Manos

Manos’ de­signs are the prod­ucts of his ex­per­i­ments in ma­te­ri­al­ity; for him clay is not a static ma­te­rial but a start­ing point. His work, on show at the Win­dow Gal­leries pri­ori­tises the as­pect of ma­te­ri­al­ity, or at least that’s what we’re told

Ju­bilee Walk, Canada Place, un­til Dec 1, free, ca­nary­wharf.com

5 COM­EDY | Jimmy Carr: The Best Of, Ul­ti­mate, Gold, Great­est Hits Tour

The funny man has dis­tilled his best jokes and brand new ma­te­rial into one night of laughs. Jimmy has been on the stand-up scene for a decade and a half. In that time he’s per­formed nine sell-out tours, play­ing nearly 2,000 shows to more than 2mil­lion peo­ple across four con­ti­nents. Now all that ex­pe­ri­ence is be­ing put to good use.

Indigo At The O2, North Green­wich, Nov 11, 7.30pm, £28.50, theo2.co.uk

6 DRINK Al­co­traz

Try this bar in­spired by the prison where guests wear or­ange jump­suits and pay for the priv­i­lege of smug­gling in some liquor. It will be sur­rep­ti­tiously made into four drinks by mixol­o­gists and, pre­sum­ably, served in a bed­pan or baked bean tin to avoid the wrath of the war­den. Up to 30 can at­tend for stretches of an hour and 45 min­utes.

Un­til Dec 17, Thurs­day-Satur­day, from 5pm-11pm, £30, al­co­traz.co.uk

7 SPORT | ATP Fi­nals 2017

The sea­son-end­ing show­down will fea­ture the best eight qual­i­fied sin­gles play­ers and dou­bles teams. Bri­tain’s de­fend­ing cham­pion Andy Mur­ray and for­mer win­ner No­vak Djokovic are both in­jured, but French and US Open cham­pion Rafael Nadal and Aus­tralian Open and Wim­ble­don win­ner Roger Fed­erer head the field.
