The Science Museum’s big spring/summer exhibition, Robots, looks at human fascination with the machines throughout history, and features 100 different robots from a 16th-century mechanical monk to Cyan, a huge humanoid robot built in 1957.
The exhibition is set over five different time periods showing how robots have changed over time, and influences have included religious belief, the industrial revolution and 20th-century popular culture.
Tamsin Greig leads a National Theatre cast in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night this spring, playing the part of ‘Malvolia’, a transformed Malvolio. The play is the first of two Shakespeare productions being directed by Simon Godwin at the Olivier Theatre (with Antony & Cleopatra starring Ralph Fiennes coming to the theatre in February 2018).
A new version of Hamlet starring Andrew Scott and Juliet Stevenson is one of the hot tickets for this spring on London’s theatre scene.
Scott is best known for his TV villain Moriarty in the phenomenally successful Sherlock, as well as the villain in the 2015 Bond film Spectre. He is joined by Truly, Madly, Deeply actress Stevenson, playing Gertrude.
America After the Fall: Painting in the 1930s is the Royal Academy’s headline exhibition of the spring, exploring US art after the Wall Street Crash of 1929.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is Grant Wood’s iconic American Gothic painting from 1930, depicting a farming couple from the Mid West (although if you visit you will find out that the painting is not at all a straight portrait). It is the first time Wood’s painting has ever left the US and so a rare opportunity for us to see one of the world’s most recognisable works of art.
He had a star turn as rogue stormtrooper Finn in the last Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), and now young London actor John Boyega is leading the cast, in his stage debut, on the Old Vic stage in Woyzeck by Georg Büchner.
The theatre is putting on a new version of the play by Jack Thorne, setting it in 1980s Berlin with Boyega playing a young soldier trying to build a better future for his child with the woman he loves.
