See the stars at Hampstead Observatory

to Hampstead Observatory Hampstead Observatory is a small observatory with a six-inch refractor, housed inside a rotating dome, and it has one major advantage over its more famous brother in Greenwich -- it allows the public to just turn up and see the stars for free. You don't even have to book.

That’s all the events for children, but there are plenty more 15 April events in London, including:

Let’s Talk Sport LIVE! — with John Motson and Barry Hearn15 AprilFootball commentator John Motson and snooker supremo Barry Hearn will be joining Mihir Bose for an evening of insight and lively debate at Cadogan Hall. ‘Let’s Talk Sport LIVE’ will lift the lid on the behind-the-scenes shenanigans and sporting scandals in this, the Olympic year. You will also get the chance to throw your own questions into the ring.

War photographs by Don McCullin15 AprilDon McCullin is recognised as one of Britain’s greatest war photographers. “Shaped By War” is a major new exhibition which explores both his life and work, and includes over 200 of his finest photographs, many which have not been seen in public.

See the London Olympic medals, at the British Museum15 AprilThe British Museum will be hosting a small exhibition showcasing all the medals that can be won at the London Olympics. Also on show will be medals from the 1908 and 1948 London Olympics. The display will tell the complete story of the medals from start to finish, from the mining of the metal to the creation of the designs, to the final casting at the Royal Mint.

Yayoi Kusama exhibition15 AprilYayoi Kusama is probably best-known for her repeating dot patterns. Since 1977 this intriguing artist has spent much of her life living in a psychiatric institution, and her work has been touched by obsession and a desire to escape from psychological trauma.

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.

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.

Captain Scott’s Antartic Expedition15 AprilCaptain 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.

Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Yeomen of the Guard”15 AprilJohn Wilson will be conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra in a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Yeomen of the Guard” at the Royal Festival Hall.

Alighiero Boetti exhibition — Tate Modern15 AprilAlighiero Boetti was one of the most influential Italian artists of the 20th-century.

Later on he travelled to places like Ethiopia and Afghanistan and created some wonderful embroideries.
