Plaza Suite at The Savoy Theatre

An Enemy of the People at Duke of York’s Theatre 

Matt Smith of Dr Who and The Crown stars in this bold reimagining of the classic play by Henrik Ibsen. It’s the English-language premiere of German director Thomas Ostermeier’s globally renowned production. This new adaption is famous for its town hall debate-style section in the play where the audience is invited to debate the ethics of the play with its protagonist, played by Matt Smith.


Women in Revolt! at the Tate Britain

The first of its kind, this exhibition is a wide-ranging exploration of feminist art by over 100 women artists working in the UK. It shines a spotlight on how networks of women used radical ideas and rebellious methods to make an invaluable contribution to British culture. Their art helped fuel the women’s liberation movement during a period of significant social, economic and political change.

Zineb Sedira: Dreams Have No Titles at the Whitechapel Gallery

The UK debut of Zineb Sedira’s critically acclaimed exhibition, Dreams Have No Titles is an immersive installation comprising film, sculpture, photography and performance. Sedira will transform the Gallery’s exhibition space into a series of film sets, blurs the boundaries between fiction and reality, using cinema and performance to foreground the importance – and joy – of collective shared experiences, while simultaneously raising a warning about the failure of the emancipatory dream that for many people remains an unfulfilled promise.

Yoko Ono: Music of the Mind at the Tate Modern

Spanning more than seven decades, YOKO ONO: MUSIC OF THE MIND is the UK’s largest exhibition celebrating key moments in Ono’s groundbreaking, influential and multidisciplinary career, from the mid-1950s to now – including her years in London where she met her future husband and longtime collaborator John Lennon. Explore over 200 works including instruction pieces, scores, installations, films, music and photography.

Cute at Somerset House

CUTE brings together contemporary artworks, including new artist commissions, and cultural phenomena such as music, fashion, toys, video games and social media, in this brand-new show examining the world’s embrace of cute culture and how it has become such an influential measure of our times. The exhibition will feature a games arcade for all ages and will even spotlight and celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of cute’s most iconic and ubiquitous figures, Hello Kitty. 

When Form Comes Alive at the Hayward Gallery

Inspired by sources ranging from a dancer’s gesture to the breaking of a wave, from a flow of molten metal to the interlacing of a spider’s web, the artworks in When Forms Come Alive conjure fluid and shifting realms of experience. Undulating, drooping, erupting, cascading and promiscuously proliferating, these sculptures invite a tactile gaze, and trigger physical responses. Palpably dynamic, they proclaim that nothing in the world stays the same, that everything is moving, seething, changing and transforming.

The Way of Tea at the British Museum

On select dates, the British Museum is hosting a free demonstration of a Japanese tea ceremony. Given by members of the Urasenke Foundation London Branch, this demonstration is followed by a brief explanation of tea drinking and gathering in Japan. 

The Architecture Drawing Prize at Sir John Soane’s Museum

Currently in its seventh year, The Architecture Drawing Prize continues to celebrate the art of drawing in three categories: hand-drawn, digital and hybrid. The Prize has attracted a record number of entries with nearly 250 drawings from around the world.

Diva at the V&A

DIVA celebrates the power and creativity of iconic performers, exploring and redefining the role of 'diva' and how this has been subverted or embraced over time across opera, stage, popular music, and film. Highlights include photographs of iconic divas such as Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, Lizzo, Cher, Tina Turner, and many more. 

Rong Bao Is Me at the Saatchi Gallery

Rong Bao Is Me pays testament to Bao’s playful transformation of familiar objects through sculptural practice, prompting us to question our perception of the physical world. The exhibition will invite sensory interactions between audience and artwork, creating a playground of gestures that poke fun at the absurdity of posing order on society. Viewers should prepare to connect with their mischievous sides and participate in a world that pushes the boundaries of acceptability.


Women’s History Month

The city of London will be in full bloom with events celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8th, and Women’s History Month celebrations the whole month long. From the Women of the World Festival at the Southbank Centre, to a free lunchtime lecture at the V&A, there are lots of ways to celebrate women from all around the world.
