You're always spoilt for choice with cultural events in London as the capital is home to a mishmash of world famous museums, ritzy art galleries and star-studded West End shows. So, why not get your culture vulture on this winter by checking out the cities best exhibitions and performances?
Every year, the World Press Photo exhibition lands at a leading art space and this year London has taken the throne. Following on from the prestigious World Press Photo Contest, the winners are being exhibited at the South Bank Centre between now and the 26th November.
The award winning photographs cover everything from modern warfare to sports and wildlife, each one a masterpiece in its own right.
The exhibition is completely free and if you venture outside the Real Food Market will be waiting for you laden with superfood juices, hand rolled pizzas and the best brownies in town.
Made in Dagenham, Adelphi Theatre
The stylish Made in Dagenham has landed in the Adelphi Theatre at the West End. Based on the Ford sewing machinist’s strike of 1968, the play is all about girl power as female machinists join forces against their bosses and demand equal pay.
Directed by Rupert Goold, the show is a rip-roaring assortment of humour, sassiness and singalong songs that’ll leave you wanting more. The critics are calling it the best musical since Matilda. Catch Made in Dagenham from now until Saturday March 28th.
Fans of Sherlock Holmes will be enamoured by He Wasn’t an Easy Gentleman to Describe. Commissioned by the Museum of London, the collection of images on show are inspired by quotes from author Conan Doyle’s works of fiction. Photographer Kasia Wozniak used the Victorian collodion process to capture the images resulting in a series of art modelled by a particularly striking male model. A word of warning though: you will definitely want to go shopping after visiting this exhibition. The Sherlock Holmes exhibition runs until Sunday March 1st.
