We don’t have any more talks listed, but there are plenty more events on Tuesday 28 February including:

Queen Elizabeth II, by Cecil Beaton28 FebruaryCecil 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.

Alighiero Boetti exhibition — Tate Modern28 FebruaryAlighiero 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.

David Lynch film season, at BFI Southbank28 FebruaryBFI Southbank will be celebrating the career of one of Hollywood’s most talked about directors with a month-long retrospective of David Lynch’s films. Films include “Blue Velvet”, “Dune”, “The Elephant Man”, “Eraserhead”, “Lost Highway” and “Wild At Heart”.

Yayoi Kusama exhibition28 FebruaryYayoi 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.

David Shrigley: Brain Activity28 FebruaryDavid Shrigley is best known for his witty and wry observations on everyday life. He uses a deliberately crude graphic style alongside an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. This exhibition will be his first major show in London.

Comedy legend Jackie Mason — his farewell UK show28 FebruaryJackie Mason is back in town with “Fearless” — his farewell show in the UK. Jackie’s politically incorrect and acerbic wit will be aimed at everything from the ecomony and the US presidential race to the Olympics, David Cameron, and his hilarious take on every day life. As Jackie says, “If it’s in the news, it’s in the show!”

War photographs by Don McCullin28 FebruaryDon 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.

Lucian Freud’s Portraits28 FebruaryThis 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.

“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons28 FebruaryThe 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.

Tchaikovsky and Brahms — Cadogan Hall28 FebruaryJoin conductor Alessandro Fabrizi, violinist Yoon-Hee Kim and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Cadogan Hall, as they perform a selection of classical works by Glinka, Tchaikovsky and Brahms.

Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” — Royal Opera House28 FebruaryThe Royal Opera House is putting on a production of Mozart’s glorious comedy, “Le Nozze di Figaro”. The plot revolves around Figaro’s attempts to protect his love from the lusty looks of Count Almaviva, but the action soon sucks in the entire household and reveals its poignant undercurrents…

George Gershwin’s “Crazy For You”28 FebruaryGeorge Gershwin’s smash-hit musical “Crazy for You” is packed full of classic songs including “I Got Rhythm”, “Someone To Watch Over Me”, “Embraceable You” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It”.
