Watch Big, Teen Wolf and Being John Malkovich at Wilton’s Transformations Festival

If you’re yet to enjoy the wonders of Wilton's Music Hall, the London Comedy Film Festival's Transformations series is a great excuse to get down there.

Between 8 and 12 August, the gorgeous grand old space in Tower Hamlets is hosting a series of classic films alongside live acts (jugglers, magicians, contortionists and the like) plus a DJ for dancing until closing time (11pm).

The Transformations week is part of Wilton's Music Hall's Anthropomorphic Summer, and they're showing some of brilliant body-swap comedies: Big, All Of Me, Tootsie, Being John Malkovich and everyone's favourite boy-becomes-beast fable: Teen Wolf.

The evenings are compered by Madame Galina, a prima ballerina with a difference. Special guest performers before the films include contortionist Rubber Ritchie, ventriloquist Nina Conti and Audacity Chutzpah, the clown-queen of burlesque.

So for just £15, you get a bit of new-school Variety, a cheesy old-school flick, and a chance to dance at the end. Sounds like a perfect night out to us!

The Transformations Festival takes place from 8-12 August at Wilton's Music Hall, 1 Graces Alley, Cable Street, E1 8JB. Tickets cost £15, which includes a £3 donation to Wilton's Restoration Fund. Visit www.locofilmfestival.com for full details.
