HOSPITAL RESEARCH OPEN DAY: Ever wondered what kinds of life-changing research goes on behind the scenes in London’s hospitals? Royal Brompton’s research day is your chance to find out.

Rich Mix (Shoreditch), £11, book ahead, 6.30pm

A festival for working women returns to The Allbright.

Good cause of the day

In this site-specific, black comedy musical, two men who both die by suicide find themselves in limbo, tasked to compete for the right to stay dead via a series of game show formats. All the profits from Game Over — at Clapham’s Bread and Roses Theatre — are split between five mental health charities, CALM, HELP Counselling, Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education, One in Four, and Maytree Respite Care.
