There’s a whole load of other London happenings, openings and pop-ups to get involved in. Here are our April 2019 highlights to get you started.

French hit-monger Florian Zeller has been treating London's theatre scene to a frighteningly high number of well-crafted dramas, including: 'The Truth', 'The Lie' and 'The Father'. His latest play is getting its premiere at Kiln Theatre in a production by superstar director Michael Longhurst.

Easter in London

There's a lot to like about Easter in London – two whole days off, gratuitous chocolate consumption and if we're lucky, some springtime sunshine. Spend the year's first bank holiday hitting up spring fairs, wild nights out and giant Easter Egg hunts.
