We don’t have any more free events, but how about these other events in London on 2 March?

“Legally Blonde”, at the Savoy Theatre2 MarchCollege cutie Elle Woods is riding high as the homecoming queen… but hits the ground with a bump when her boyfriend dumps her for someone serious. So Ellie does what all women do when they’re depressed — she hits the shops, and signs up for Harvard Law — proving that being true to yourself never goes out of style.

“The Pitmen Painters” — Duchess Theatre2 March“The Pitmen Painters” was written by the same guy as “Billy Elliot” — Lee Hall. It explores similar themes to that play, but this time it’s about a group of adult miners who enroll in an art course so they can express themselves in paint.

David Shrigley: Brain Activity2 MarchDavid Shrigley is best known for his witty and wry observations on everyday life. He uses a deliberately crude graphic style alongside an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. This exhibition will be his first major show in London.

“Absent Friends” at the Harold Pinter Theatre2 MarchAlan Ayckbourn’s classic black comedy “Absent Friends” will be one tea party that you’ll never forget… When Colin loses his fiancĂ©e, his friends invite him round for a bit of cheering up. But when they start to pour the tea trouble bubbles up in the form of a wickedly funny blend of jealousy, infidelity and barely hidden hatred. Maybe it isn’t just Colin that needs the help?

“The Leisure Society”, at Trafalgar Studios2 March“The Leisure Society” is a fantastically offensive comedy with absolutely no moral compass. When a well-heeled couple invite their friend over for dinner, intending to dump him, they are surprised to find that he turns up with a stunning new beau in tow. The dinner party then descends into a drunken row of revelation and debauchery.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year 20112 MarchThe Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition reveals the best images from the world’s most prestigious wildlife photography competition. It includes all of the winners, the runners-up and more than 100 prize-winning photographs.

All New People2 March“All New People” tells the story of Charlie, who has retreated to Long Beach Island for the winter. With his life in a rut, his little hideaway escape plan is ruined a motley parade of misfits who turn up and darken the mood. What will a fireman, a beauty queen, and a Brit estate agent do cooped up in a beach house?

“Blood Brothers”, at the Phoenix Theatre2 March“Blood Brothers” has been packing them into the West End for two decades now.
