Dirty Dancing

21 January 2023 to 29 April 2023 - Tickets from £22.50 - Dominion Theatre, London, W1T 7AQ 

The record-breaking theatre production of the 1987 classic Dirty Dancing is returning to London's West End once again. Debuting in Sydney in 2004, Dirty Dancing enjoyed a five-year run in the West End starting in 2006, returning for numerous performances with the most recent being the 2018/19 Christmas tour. Their first time back since Covid, it is certainly on the radar for any fans of the film, and the budget has only gotten bigger. Prepare for a complete blow-out at any of their dates that run for the next few months.

19th January to April 1st - Tickets from £18 - Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave, London W1D 6AR 

Once one of the hardest tickets to buy in the West End, the ever-sold out stage adaptation of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird enjoys another round in London this year. Playwrit by Aaron Sorkin, the famed screenwriter behind hits such as West Wing, NewsroomThe Social Network, and Moneyball, starring Matthew Modine from Full Metal Jacket and Stranger Things, the stage production has recieved rave reviews since its debut. If you've missed out on tickets last time, nows your chance.

21st January to 23rd April - Tickets from £10 - Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave, London, W1D 7ES

Back in town after three very successful runs in the West End, 2:22: A GHOST STORY is an award-winning, adrenaline-enticing supernatural thriller, promising ghosts or lack thereof. A haunted house, a dinner party gone wrong, the revival of past spirits, the hilarity and suspense that ensues within, the conventional supernatural story arc is made brilliant by its performances, with Jake Wood's winning a Whatsonstage award for his role in the play last year. If a white-knuckle thrill is your cup of tea, get brewing this season at the Lyric Theatre.

George Henry Longly - Microgravities


9th of February to 25th of March -  NNıCOLETTı, London 12A Vyner Street, E2 9DG

A mixed media exhibit combining sculpture and video, George Henry Longly reflects on the beauty and mystery of outer space. Microgravity takes influence from NASA imagery, FlintstonesEvent Horizon,  and 2001: A Space Odyssey to hybridise earthly perceptions of cosmic realm. One piece, Bedrock, collages fragments from the animation Flintstones onto a marble slab, portraying the mysteries of the dawn of man and the surrounding cultural perceptions that begin a cosmis history ending with the distant future, much like Kubrick's film. The exhibit suggests our own view of outer space is a projection of human hopes and fears, and our discomforting wranglings with infinity.

Lee Scratch Perry - Art Work

8th of March to 6th of May - Cabinet, 132 Tyers Street, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, SE11 5HS

Another mixed media exhibiton comibing collage, drawing, stone painting, and more, this exciting space at Vauxhall's Cabinet contains samples of the visual art of dub reggae artist Lee Scratch Perry. After famously burning down his on Black Ark studio in Jamaica, and all his artwork with it, he remade its spiritual successor, Blue Ark, in Switzerland. Though much of the early artwork was lost in the fire, the works at Blue Ark remain here on display, which we are lucky to see. A chaotic compilation of scrawlings, images, and stones, we can see the sampling ethos of the great artist transfer into visual art.
