Our March 2020 highlights
Tim Minchin's wickedly good story of a schoolgirl genius is still irresistible.
London lad Rob Beckett has quickly become a mainstream comedy hero, popping up on Live at the Apollo and The One Show, hosting a primetime Saturday night entertainment series, and appearing various panel shows with his unmistakable toothy grin.
Imitation is, they say, the greatest form of flattery. But the best artists do more than simply copy. In this interesting-sounding free exhibition, the National Gallery shows the works of modernist painter David Bomberg alongside the Old Masters (Botticelli, Michelangelo and co.) that provided inspiration.
This year-long arts festival celebrates refugees from Nazi Europe and highlights their impact on British culture. Expect a vibrant and all-encompassing programme of exhibitions, performances and events across a variety of London venues.
When Tim Walker took over Somerset House with his 'Story Teller' exhibition in 2012, the gallery was filled with, among other things, a 10ft tall baby doll and an orchestra of oversized bugs. Seven years later and the photographer, a long-time contributor to British Vogue, now gets a show at the V&A.
Tate Modern continues its commitment to giving female artists the recognition they deserve with the biggest retrospective of Dora Maar ever held in Britain. Maar's surrealist works centre on an extensive archive of photographs and photomontages, but her career has been somewhat overshadowed by her relationship with Picasso. This exhibition plans to situate Maar's creations alongside those of her contemporaries, but hopefully not (for once) just ol' Pablo.
A group show of little-known pop-inflected psychedelia. It's mind-blowingly good, and huge amounts of fun.
Giant machines symbolising the death of industrial Britain. It's overwhelming and poignantly sad.
Scare yourself senseless at one of East London Film Festival's horror showings in a real-life Masonic Temple. The monthly showings kick off with Ari Aster's terrifying ‘Hereditary’ (a real skin crawler) and includes screenings of classics such as the OG ‘The Omen’ and ‘The Shining’.
Mother’s Day in London can be amazing, but you need to put the effort in and make sure the date's in your diary (Sunday March 31 2019). Have a browse through our comprehensive guide to help you organise the perfect day.
