Cool Events Column: Cheesey does it in Stony Stratford!

Ex-BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave has hand-picked an evening all about Swiss culture, a retro gaming market, a stand-up comedy night and comedy drag bingo as her top February events.

I hope you have all been keeping those resolutions and getting up to lots of exciting new things so far in 2020.

The best thing about February this year is we get a whole extra day, so let’s make the most of this slightly longer than usual month!

Here are my top picks for great things to do in February. On the 6th, Out of Office Coffee in Stony Stratford are hosting a very unique event.

Frida Fondue – For The Love of Cheese is an evening of feasting on different cheeses and immersing yourself in Swiss culture.

There will be endless cheeses, Swiss music and plenty of drinks for you to indulge in. Head to Eventbrite to grab your tickets for this tasty event.

If you are a serious gamer then I have just the thing for you. The Milton Keynes Gaming Market is being held on the 8th at Stantonbury Leisure Centre and it sounds awesome.

Think of a huge market selling lots of classic games and gaming equipment, sold by like minded people and gaming enthusiasts – perfect!

There will be plenty of bargains to be had so to make sure you don’t miss out, find the event on Facebook to secure your early bird tickets.

The 16th sees one of the UK’s favourite comedians at Milton Keynes Theatre. Performing his show ‘Bit Much’ the hilarious Josh Widdicombe is ready to entertain us all.

You might have seen Josh on 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, QI or even in his self-titled sitcom series on BBC2. His wit and observational comedy are a delight to behold so get your tickets from and I will see you there!

Finally, if glamour and games are your thing then head to The Galleon for a night of Comedy Drag Bingo on the 27th. What could be more entertaining than a good game of bingo hosted by the fabulous drag superstar, and star of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, Charlie Hides.

Find the event on Facebook for information and to get your tickets. Now, sashay away!
