‘Scotch and Soda’ at London Wonderground

It seemed rather fitting that on the day that the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe programme was launched, I toddled off to see a show at the London Wonderground.

YET we were quite poor and on a time constraint. We scoured Time Out and Londonist and Skint London and all ┬áthose other lovely sites that help flailing-fun-hungry (flungry) Londoners and yet couldn’t find anything that cut the┬ámustard (side note- how DOES one cut mustard?
