Let’s Talk Sport LIVE! — with John Motson and Barry Hearn

Cadogan Hall Football 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.

We don’t have any more talks listed, but there are plenty more events on Sunday 15 April including:

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.

Alighiero Boetti exhibition — Tate Modern15 AprilAlighiero Boetti was one of the most influential Italian artists of the 20th-century. As a key member of the Arte Povera group he sought radical new ways to use simple materials like stamps, pens and magazine covers. Later on he travelled to places like Ethiopia and Afghanistan and created some wonderful embroideries.

“Picasso and Britain” exhibition15 April“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.

The Best of Rodgers and Hammerstein15 AprilJoin West End singers Mary Carewe, Ria Jones, Michael Dore and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for an evening of songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, including favourites like “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair” and “Some Enchanted Evening”.

Gesamtkunstwerk: New art from Germany15 AprilThe Saatchi Gallery is hosting an exhibition of new art from Germany called “Gesamtkunstwerk”. It will include pieces by Dirk Bell, Matti Braun, Andre Butzer, Max Frisinger, Thomas Helbig, Volker Hueller, Thomas Kiesewetter, Josephine Meckseper, Kirstine Roepstorff, Julian Rosefeldt, Markus Selg and Thomas Zipp.

Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando Comics15 AprilThis explosive exhibition features some of the best covers and illustrations from 50 years of the “Commando” comic series. “Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando Comics” will explore the history of the comic from its very first issue, through to its heroic subject matter and its enduring popularity.

See the stars at Hampstead Observatory15 AprilHampstead 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.

Lucian Freud’s Portraits15 AprilThis 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.

“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.
