That’s all the West End musicals, but there are plenty more things to do on Sunday 25 March including:

“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons25 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.

An Appointment with The Waterboys25 MarchThe Waterboys have undergone a mini-renaissance of late, with a new line-up featuring the “Fisherman’s Blues”-era Steve Wickham. Mike Scott promises that one half of the show will be filled with all the best tracks from the band’s back catalogue, and the second half will concentrate on their latest album “An Appointment with Mr Yeats”.

Stephen Hawking: A 70th birthday celebration25 MarchThe Science Museum will be celebrating Professor Stephen Hawking’s 70th birthday with a small exhibition of objects and papers from his own archives. There will also be some specially recorded audio by Professor Hawking himself, and some photographs that span his life and career, many of them previously unseen.

Hajj — Journey to the heart of Islam25 MarchHajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and every muslim must make a pilgrimage to Mecca at least one time in their lives. This major new exhibition will chart the history of this journey, exploring how pilgrims have tackled it through the centuries.

Queen Elizabeth II, by Cecil Beaton25 MarchCecil Beaton photographed The Queen as she went from being a princess to a monarch and a mother.
