If, like me, you wish you could be in Edinburgh, there is some cultural compensation in the form of the Portobello Film Festival, kindly brought to my attention by Will Melia. It's conveniently situated for Imperial medical students and it's free.
Suzy Wilson, who runs our movement workshop on the Imperial medical humanities course, is artistic director of an innovative theatre company, Clod Ensemble. They are off to Edinburgh soon but there is a 'preview' in Shoreditch on Thursday 18 August. Performances at 7 pm and 9 pm at St John's Church, Pitfield St, N1, and tickets cost only £2.50. E-mail Roxie at the Shoreditch Trust to book.
