      Event: Hello My Name is Paul Smith

      Location: Design Museum, SE1

      Event: Turner and the Sea

      Location: National Maritime Museum, SE10

      The artist JMW Turner had a life-long interest in the sea, which he painted time and time again. The exhibition Turner & the Sea is the first large-scale examination of his seascapes, painted at the height of Britain’s naval power, reflecting the nation’s great love affair with the sea.

      The exhibition has borrowed paintings from around the world, from his earlier marine paintings such as Calais Pier (1803), The Shipwreck (1805) and the first oil painting he exhibited at the Royal Academy, The Wreck of a Transport Ship (c. 1810), to the last seascape he painted, The Wreck Buoy (1849), and includes his largest painting, The Battle of Trafalgar (1822-24).

      Event: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical and other events

      Location: Theatre Royal Drury Lane, WC2, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 and Kew Gardens, TW9

      Roald Dahl’s best loved children’s story, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is 50 years old this year, so get your own golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s whipple-scrumptious party and join in the chocolate-coated fun.

      • The West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – The Musical has been playing to sold out audiences since May last year. With ingenious staging and a little updating of the story, Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes’s production has proved a hit with theatre-goers, particularly younger ones. The actor Alex Jennings takes over the role of Willy Wonka from Douglas Hodge in mid-May. (Charlie is on at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in Covent Garden, WC2, booking until 30th May 2015, suitable for age 7+).

      Event: Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story

      Location: Natural History Museum, SW7

      Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story is a major Natural History Museum exhibition on early humankind. Twelve years of research have gone into the exhibition to bring to life  prehistoric human existence in Britain.

      As well as life-size models of the human species that inhabited Britain (see the short film about making the models), the museum is showing rarely displayed items such as the oldest wooden spear in the world, and the oldest Neanderthal skull found in Britain.

      Event: Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward

      Location: Gielgud Theatre, W1

      Angela Lansbury takes the starring role in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, reprising a role she played in the hit Broadway production of the play in 2009. It is her first West End role in nearly 40 years.

      Lansbury plays the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati, who is invited to perform a séance at a novelist’s house, as research for his latest novel. It is a move that backfires when she accidently summons up the ghost of the novelist’s first wife, causing him all kinds of problems.
