Photography

Fashion Show: 60 Years of Fashion Photography

If the queue for the National Portrait Gallery’s ‘Vogue 100’ is too much to bear, head to this smaller exhibition instead. Charting the last six decades of fashion photography, the walls will be plastered with more than 40 snaps, including the wonderfully vibrant Miles Aldridge (above). Atlas Gallery. Tube: Marylebone. Until Mar 24. 

Walking tour

Bullsh!t Shakespeare’s London

Watch out, Shakespeare purists: Bullsh!t London will be running amok this month with imaginary facts and funny untruths about the Bard.
