      Event: Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story

      Location: Natural History Museum, SW7

      Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story is a major Natural History Museum exhibition on early humankind. Twelve years of research have gone into the exhibition to bring to life  prehistoric human existence in Britain.

      As well as life-size models of human species that inhabited Britain (see the short film about making the models), the museum is showing rarely displayed items such as the oldest wooden spear in the world, and the oldest Neanderthal skull found in Britain.

      Event: The Great War in Portraits

      Location: National Portrait Gallery, WC2

      The Great War in Portraits is a wide-ranging exhibition of First World War portraits, commemorating the centenary of the start of the war.

      It starts with formal portraits of those involved in the politics, from the European monarchs who played their part in the outbreak of the war, from George V, his cousins Tsar Nicolas II and Kaiser Wilhelm II, onto the military commanders who orchestrated the campaigns, from Haig to Hindenburg.

      Event: Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward

      Location: Gielgud Theatre, W1

      Angela Lansbury takes the starring role in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, reprising a role she played in the hit Broadway production of the play in 2009. It is her first West End role in nearly 40 years.

      Lansbury plays the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati, who is invited to perform a séance at a novelist’s house, as research for his latest novel. It is a move that backfires when she accidently summons up the ghost of the novelist’s first wife, causing him all kinds of problems.

      The National Gallery’s exhibition, Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, the first ever staged in this country on the Venetian master, aims to shine a light on his stunning works of art.
