      Event: Shrek’s Adventure: The Green Ogre Tour

      Location: County Hall, SE1

      Shrek’s Adventure is a London kids’ attraction which opened last summer. The themed, interactive exhibition follows the story of DreamWorks’ green ogre Shrek and his Donkey from the solitude of his swamp through tunnels to the land of Far Far Away.

      The highlight is the 4D bus tour of London (beware, it may leave the road!), with Shrek’s Donkey as your tour guide, and plenty of animation. There are also 10 live fairytale-themed shows, a mirror maze, and a whole host of characters that your kids may recognise from other films, from the penguins of Madagascar fame to Kung Fu Panda.

      Event: Sheridan Smith stars as Fanny Brice

      Location: Savoy Theatre, WC2

      Pitch perfect funny girl Sheridan Smith has been universally lauded for her portrayal of Fanny Brice, a role more-or-less owned by Barbra Streisand up till now.

      The musical has transferred to the West End from fringe venue the Menier Chocolate Factory, where it had a sold-out run at the end of last year.

      Funny Girl is the semi-biographical story of Fanny Brice, an actress and comedienne from New York’s Lower East Side, who became one of Broadway’s biggest stars in the early part of the last century. Her story is a rollercoaster journey of a woman pulled between a successful career and a doomed love life.

      Event: Shakespeare 400: Royal Shakespeare Company in London

      Location: Barbican Theatre, EC2 and Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1

      The Royal Shakespeare Company is bringing seven plays to London over the course of this special Shakespeare year, the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death.

      The London season includes Gregory Doran’s King Lear starring longtime partner Anthony Sher, and Ben Jonson’s play about human vanity The Alchemist, directed by Polly Findlay (who directed Treasure Island at the National last year).

      Event: Serpentine Gallery architectural pavilion

      Location: Serpentine Gallery, W2e

      A sloping wall of giant ice cubes forms the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.

      Not real ice cubes, you understand, they are made from hollowed out fibreglass bricks, piled up and up into a soaring sculpture, described as an “unzipped wall”. Ingels’s design promises to be “modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both solid box and blob”.

    • from 02/07/2016 to 02/10/2016
      Event: Art: David Hockney at the Royal Academy

      Location: Royal Academy of Arts, W1

      David Hockney had a blockbuster show at the Royal Academy four years ago, one of the most popular exhibitions in the RA’s history. Now he’s back, with a much smaller show of portraits that he has painted over the last three years in his Los Angeles studio.

      The portraits are of Hockney’s family and friends – Australian comedian Barry Humphries, his sister Margaret, mega art-dealer Larry Gagosian, textile designer Celia Birtwell (aka the Mrs Clark of one of Hockney’s most famous paintings — on display at the Tate Britain) and others. The paintings are all similar — the colours, the canvas size, the background, even the chair is the same, all painted in acrylic.
