9 November events in London

Pick of the day – Tim Minchin at the London Palladium

For the past few years Tim Minchin has been busy writing scores for West End shows like Matilda and Groundhog Day, but now he's back at the Palladium doing what he does best: comedy songs. Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs will be his first UK dates since 2011, and will include old and new songs from his eclectic repertoire.

 

Need some inspiration for 9th November? Henry VIII sent his fifth wife Catherine Howard to the Tower of London on this day in 1541, and she was beheaded on Tower Green three months later. Why not visit the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula and see where she was buried? You can get inside on a Yeoman Warder tour.
