THEATRE: Nathan and Ida’s Hot Dog Stand, Cygnet Theatre, Exeter, Fri 28 Feb

A feast of physical comedy served with generous helpings of clowning, mime, dance and a pinch of puppetry (with hints of the classic cartoons), this fast-paced, two-hander evokes tantalising tastes of a glorious bygone era: silent movies, carnival rides and sepia-toned postcards. A multitude of characters tell a story of love, resilience and hot dogs.

ANTIQUES: Antiques and Collectibles Fair, RHS Rosemoor, Torrington, Sat 29 Feb – Sun Mar 1

COMEDY: Milton Jones: Milton Impossible, Plymouth Pavilions, Sat 29 Feb

Milton’s silly, super-speedy one-liners are a joy. Here he is on a mission to reveal the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo. But this is also a love story with the twist, or at least a really bad sprain.
