      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: 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).

    • from 23/07/2016 to 08/01/2017
      Event: Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style From the Queen's Wardrobe

      Location: Buckingham Palace, SW1 & Windsor Castle, SL4

      It is not often that the public gets to peek into the sovereign’s wardrobe, but to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday, the Palace is showing off the Queen’s dresses in exhibitions that span three palaces and clothes from her whole lifetime.

      Her Majesty has virtually lived her entire life in the public eye, and hardly put a sartorial foot wrong in all that time. As she turns 90, 150 of her outfits are being displayed at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, many chosen because of their close associations with the locations.

    • from 22/09/2016 to 03/12/2016
      Event: Theatre: The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys

      Location: Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1

      Dominic Cooper takes on the notoriously cocksure and dissolute but dashing Earl of Rochester on stage this autumn, playing the starring role in The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys.

      It is the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester — a charismatic poet, playwright and libertine famous for his bawdy, obscene verse who satirised Charles II’s Restoration court.

    • from 12/10/2016 to 15/01/2017
      Event: Art Exhibition: Caravaggio 2016/17

      Location: National Gallery, WC2

      Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was a Baroque Master; a sublime painter and rock-star artist, but also aggressive, ill-tempered and a murderer — he lived fast and died young (at only 38 in 1610), while still effectively on the run from the authorities in Rome for killing a man in a brawl.

      His paintings show all of this; the drama of his life reflected in his revolutionary use of everyday subjects in theatrically-lit religious paintings.
