“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons3 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.

“Legally Blonde”, at the Savoy Theatre3 MarchCollege cutie Elle Woods is riding high as the homecoming queen… but hits the ground with a bump when her boyfriend dumps her for someone serious. So Ellie does what all women do when they’re depressed — she hits the shops, and signs up for Harvard Law — proving that being true to yourself never goes out of style.

See the London Olympic medals, at the British Museum3 MarchThe British Museum will be hosting a small exhibition showcasing all the medals that can be won at the London Olympics. Also on show will be medals from the 1908 and 1948 London Olympics. The display will tell the complete story of the medals from start to finish, from the mining of the metal to the creation of the designs, to the final casting at the Royal Mint.

Captain Scott’s Antartic Expedition3 MarchCaptain Robert Scott’s expedition to Antarctica in 1910-1913 was one of the most famous expedition’s of all-time. This extraordinary exhibition commemorates the centenary by collecting together artefacts used by his team, alongside a life-size representation of Scott’s base-camp, which still survives in Antarctica.

“The Leisure Society”, at Trafalgar Studios3 March“The Leisure Society” is a fantastically offensive comedy with absolutely no moral compass. When a well-heeled couple invite their friend over for dinner, intending to dump him, they are surprised to find that he turns up with a stunning new beau in tow. The dinner party then descends into a drunken row of revelation and debauchery.

The Madness of George III3 MarchAlan Bennett’s play “The Madness of George III” is best-known as an award-winning film starring Nigel Hawthorne and Helen Mirren. It charts the true story of George III’s mental health problems brought on by porphyria, which led to bouts of insanity.

Hajj — Journey to the heart of Islam3 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.

“Three Days In May”… with Warren Clarke3 March“Three Days in May” takes us behind the famous Downing Street door for three of the most pivotal days in British history. Newly installed as Prime Minister, Winston Churchill assembles the war cabinet and tries to persuade the appeasers that Britain’s only option is to fight on alone.

“The Duchess of Malfi”, at the Old Vic3 MarchThe Old Vic will be putting on a production of John Webster’s Jacobean tragedy “The Duchess of Malfi”, which tells the black and bloody story of the recently widowed Duchess, struggling to retain her dignity in the face of death.
