Our March 2017 highlights


Russell Howard: Round the World

Hyperactive comedy superstar Russell Howard is embarking on his biggest ever world tour – inventively titled 'Round the World' – taking in the US, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. And for his London stint, the Bristolian arena-filler is playing a whopping ten-night run at the Royal Albert Hall. It's not till 2017, but buy tickets soon, is our advice.

The Kid Stays in the Picture

The Royal Court's tack to the left under Vicky Featherstone had borne some serious fruit in the shape of this collaboration with the towering genius Simon McBurney, fresh from blowing our minds with his theatre company Complicite's reality-shredding 'The Encounter'. Produced by Barbara Broccoli, 'The Kid Stays in the Pictures' charts the rise and fall of legedary Hollywood man Robert Evans.

Glass Animals

Hailing from Oxford, this experimental electronic pop outfit made a splash with their debut album 'Zaba' – full of lush, hazy pop curveballs layered with psychedelic synth-work and gentle electronic beats. They've got a follow-up coming up soon so you'll hear new material here.

Roman Tragedies

Seriously: book your tickets now. Yes, Ivo van Hove's legendary mash up of Shakespeare's Roman tragedies – 'Coriolanus', 'Julius Caesar' and 'Antony and Cleopatra' – is six hours long, and doesn't have an interval in the conventional sense. But it is simply one the greatest theatre productions ever staged, less a gruelling feat of endurance than a great communal endeavour, in which the audience is invited to wander up onto the stage, sit down, buy drinks and snacks during the frequent semi-pauses and generally be thrust into the heart of things.

Barbican Centre , Barbican Friday March 17 2017 - Sunday March 19 2017

The Japanese House

Explore how architecture and family life in Japan changed after 1945 with this new exhibition at the Barbican. The legacy of WW2 and the changing face of Japanese society wrought huge changes in the way the nation lived, and the way Japanese design principles influenced the West over the last 70 years.

Barbican Centre , Barbican Saturday March 25 2017 - Sunday June 25 2017

The Who

Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are celebrating 50 years since the first gig by The Who by retiring gracefully. Just kidding: clearly long done with hoping they die before they get old, they’re off on another massive arena tour, which (after a few postponed dates late last year) stops off in London for a set of ‘hits and misses’.

@Thomas H East London is best for that kind of thing! Liverpool Street and Old Street. There are plenty of independent cafes, design shops and small gallery spaces in the area. Try "The Attendant" for coffee and brunch, the atmosphere is chilled and they play good music too.  Brick Lane is also an area worth checking out for cool street art, biiiiig vintage and record shops and more good food. It's a good place for creatives. If you're into music go to "Rough Trade".  Spitalfields market is a 5 minute walk from Liverpool Street station too so go there for lunch or something!
Shoreditch isn't far away from there either so you could head over in the evening for drinks (Queen of Hoxton and Bedroom Bar which is good for cocktails and live music) or for a bigger night out try XOYO or Cargo. It's definitely worth wondering around there in the day too for galleries etc. Just spend a day wondering about in East London!

If you're in North London try Camden Town for their markets and some cheap(er) bars and music venues.
I hope this helps!

Oh I love Suede, I think Brad Anderton has got a terrific voice, a bit annoying sometimes but generally good. In Britpop I also like Shed 7 when they did Go For Gold.
