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:

“She Stoops to Conquer”, at the National Theatre15 April“She Stoops To Conquer” tells the story of Hardcastle, who’s trying to introduce his eligable daughter to his old friend’s son. But his son is crippled with shyness when it comes to wooing the upper classes, and he is tricked into thinking his prospective father-in-law is an old innkeeper, and his daughter is a barmaid.

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.

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.

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.

Turner Inspired: In the Light of Claude15 AprilJ W Turner was a huge admirer of the Italian artist Claude’s landscapes. Two of Turner’s most famous paintings were even left to the gallery on the proviso that they were hung between two of his pictures. This exhibition will showcase some other closely related works and includes oils, watercolours and sketchbooks.

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.

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.

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.

“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.
