Captain Scott’s Antartic Expedition23 MarchCaptain Robert Scott’s expedition to Antarctica in 1910-1913 was one of the most famous expedition’s of all-time. This extraordinary exhibition commemorates the centenary by collecting together artefacts used by his team, alongside a life-size representation of Scott’s base-camp, which still survives in Antarctica.

“Dickens and London” exhibition, at the Museum of London23 MarchThe Museum of London will be marking the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth by putting on a major new exhibition, taking you on a journey through Victorian London to discover the city that inspired his writings. Paintings, photographs and the original manuscripts of ‘Bleak House’ and ‘David Copperfield’ will bring to life the author’s world.

Simon Callow in “Being Shakespeare”23 MarchBack by popular demand, Simon Callow will be reprising his celebration of the world’s most famous playwright in “Being Shakespeare”. This magnificent one-man show brings to life the Bard by interweaving his most popular plays into a “greatest hits” whole, populating it with his most loved and most reviled characters.

“The Leisure Society”, at Trafalgar Studios23 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.

Sing-A-Long-A Sound Of Music23 MarchJoin Maria, the nuns, the dashing Captain and his gaggle of singing kids in Sing-A-Long-A Sound of Music! A compere will be on hand to whip the audience into a Julie Andrews inspired frenzy, and fancy dress is encouraged. There’s even a competition for the best-dressed nun/nazi/Von Trapp kid!

JLS — at the O2 Arena23 MarchJLS originally shot to fame during the X-Factor before becoming one of Britain’s most successful boy bands. Now they have announced a brand new “4th Dimension” arena tour for March and April 2012, taking in three nights at the O2 Arena.

David Hockney: A Bigger Picture23 MarchThis major new exhibition by David Hockney will span fifty years of his career, picking out the pieces which demonstrate Hockney’s fascination with the depiction of landscape. The exhibition will also include some of his iPad drawings, and a series of films which were shot on 18 cameras.

David Shrigley: Brain Activity23 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.

“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons23 MarchThe Cartoon Museum will be marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a special exhibition of portraits drawn during the last 60 years. Some are affectionate, some are teasing, and some are totally unflattering, but their combined might showcase how her image has changed down the decades, and explores how the monarch’s image was taboo in cartoons even as late as the 1950s.

“Moon on a Rainbow Shawl”, at the National Theatre23 MarchOld Mack’s noisy yard in Trinidad is a cacophony of calypso beats and hymn tunes, where neighbours drink, fight and pass judgment, all whilst trying to build a better life. But Ephraim is determined, and nothing is going to stop him escaping his dead-end job for a nw life in England — not even the beautiful Rosa.

Titian’s “Diana and Callisto”23 MarchThis special exhibition celebrates the National Gallery’s acquisition of Titian’s “Diana and Callisto”. Its companion painting “Diana and Actaeon” was purchased in 2009, and the pair have now been reunited in Room 1. “Diana and Callisto” shows the moment when Diana banishes Callisto after revealing her pregnancy.

“Picasso and Britain” exhibition23 March“Picasso and Britain” will explore the artist’s lifelong connections with this country. The exhibition will consist of 150 works charting Picasso’s rise in Britain, tracing the ways in which his work was exhibited and collected here during his lifetime. It will also examine the artist’s impact on 20th-century modernism.

Lucian Freud’s Portraits23 MarchThis major new exhibition will focus on Lucian Freud’s portraits — a central theme throughout his career. It will be divided into broad themes from particular periods. For example, paintings of Freud’s lovers, close friends and family will be used to demonstrate the psychological drama and intensity of his work.
