      Event: The Play That Goes Wrong in the West End

      Location: Duchess Theatre, WC2

      The Play That Goes Wrong is a riotous romp of a play within a play about a hapless amateur dramatic society’s attempts to put on a 1920s Agatha Christie-style murder drama.

      Of course everything goes very, very wrong, and the production within the production is a complete disaster, but it’s a slapstick tongue-in-cheek wrong that has had audiences flocking to see it.

      Event: RSC at the Barbican at Theatre Royal Haymarket

      Location: Barbican Theatre, EC2 and Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1

      The Royal Shakespeare Company is bringing seven plays to London over the course of this special Shakespeare year, the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death.

      The London season includes Gregory Doran’s King Lear starring longtime partner Anthony Sher and Ben Jonson’s play about human vanity The Alchemist, directed by Polly Findlay (who directed Treasure Island at the National last year).

      Event: Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds

      Location: British Museum, WC1

      For over a thousand years the ancient Egyptian cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus lay hidden under the Mediterranean seabed at the mouth of the Nile, only known through Greek myths and historical Egyptian decrees.

      Once busy cosmopolitan port cities built on islands in the Nile Delta, the cities disappeared under the waves centuries ago, becoming completely submerged by the 8th century AD.

      Event: V&A Exhibition: Sydney Opera House Engineer Ove Arup

      Location: V&A Museum, SW7

      The V&A is celebrating the innovative design engineer Ove Arup, whose work spanned much of the 20th century and included some of the greatest engineering feats of the era.

      Ove Arup worked on projects from London Zoo’s beautiful curved Penguin Pool in the 1930s and the Mulberry Harbour fenders — a significant element in the success of the Normandy Landings during the Second World War — to Sydney Opera House in the 1950s-1960s.

      Event: Royal Fashion: The Queen’s Wardrobe

      Location: Buckingham Palace, SW1 & Windsor Castle, SL4

      It is not often that the public gets to peek into the sovereign’s wardrobe, but to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday, the Palace is showing off the Queen’s dresses in exhibitions that span three palaces and clothes from her whole lifetime.

      Her Majesty has virtually lived her entire life in the public eye, and hardly put a sartorial foot wrong in all that time. As she turns 90, 150 of her outfits are being displayed at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, many chosen because of their close associations with the locations.
