We don’t have any more guided tours, but how about these other events on 15 April in London?

Antarctic photography, from Scott’s expedition15 April“The Heart of the Great Alone” is a remarkable exhibition of photographs from Scott’s Antartic expedition in 1910 and Shackleton’s visit in 1914. The dramatic images include some extraordinary icescapes and shots of the ships towering above the ice.

Damien Hirst exhibition — Tate Modern15 AprilDamien Hirst first came to attention in the 1980s and has gone on to become one of the most influential artists of his generation. This exciting exhibition will bring together key works from his first twenty years, including many of his iconic sculptures, medicine cabinets and spot and spin paintings.

Mondrian || Nicholson: In Parallel15 AprilThe Courtauld Gallery is putting on a special exhibition which follows the friendship that developed between Piet Mondrian and Ben Nicholson — two of the leading forces of abstract art. Using major paintings and reliefs by both artists, its explores the parallel paths that Mondrian and Nicholson charted during the 1930s in their Hampstead studios.

“Moon on a Rainbow Shawl”, at the National Theatre15 AprilOld 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.

“Migrations” exhibition — Tate Britain15 AprilCutting through 500 years of history, the exhibition will include works by Lely, Kneller, Mondrian, Bomberg and more. It was also explore the 16th and 17th-century Dutch and Flemish artists who came over in search of new patrons for their landscape and still-life work.

Hans-Peter Feldmann exhibition — Serpentine Gallery15 AprilHans-Peter Feldmann made his name in the 1970s with his expansive and encyclopaedic photographic series, which linked his life-long hobby of collecting with his practice as an archivist of visual culture. This will be Feldmann’s first solo show in a UK gallery since winning the 2010 Hugo Boss Prize.

“Noises Off”, at the Novello Theatre15 AprilThe Novello Theatre will be putting on a production of Michael Frayn’s side-splitting comedy, “Noises Off” — hailed as one of the best British comedies ever written. The plot follows the backstage shenanigans of a theatre company as they stumble their way through rehearsals to a shambolic first night and a final disastrous performance.

Queen Elizabeth II, by Cecil Beaton15 AprilCecil Beaton photographed The Queen as she went from being a princess to a monarch and a mother. This exhibition will feature nearly 100 of his best portraits. Also included are extracts from Beaton’s own letters and diaries, which will reveal the intense planning and working practice of a royal sitting.
