The Arcola Theatre is running a festival of comedy and theatre throughout this week to build shelters for refugees.


The festival line-up features established names alongside exciting up-and-coming talent – with more names still to be announced.


Pay what you can for entry and everything will be donated to build shelters in Calais.


After core costs, Arcola will also donate their bar takings to support this vital cause.


For Monday-Saturday performances, 76 (free) tickets are available online.


20 further tickets will be released from 7pm on the night of each performance.


They will be available in person at the Arcola box office, on a first-come-first-served basis.


More details from the Arcola website.


You can also make a donation here.
