Stewart Lee – A Room With a Stew

Critics' choice

The iconoclast comedian is back with a month-long residency at his regular venue. Lee's sold as many tickets at the Leicester Square Theatre to fill the O2 arena for multiple nights.

Churchill's Scientists

We'd never have won the war without science on our side, and a great number of breakthroughs took place under the direction of Winston Churchill. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of the portly Prime Minister's death, this exhibition celebrates the inventions and scientific endeavour which came to Britain's aid during World War Two. Artefacts, film footage, letters and photographs tell the stories of pioneering nutritionist Elsie Widdowson, Dorothy Hodgkin's advancement of X-ray crystallography, Robert Watson-Watt's invention of the radar and many more remarkable projects from the era.

I like the detail of the dates that you include both for christmas, but again heading into January. Also - the fact that you outline when items are free and when they are family friendly. This is my go-to when heading to big cities in advance so I know what to do when I arrive.

Couldn't find a listing for classical music productions in January. Date choice option did not work. Gave up rather quickly because I was bothered.
