Fun Things to Do

What's on in London?

What's on in London?

Great Deals to be had for January/February

Why not go to the theatre and see some of the great shows on in London at the moment. Check out the Editors' Choice.

Here are six of the best  to brighten the grey winter days - for great entertainment in 2011:

War Horse at New London Theatre

If you thought puppets were just for children; think again.  This is a great show and we think one of the best in London at the moment

Check it out on www.warhorselondon.com




Les Miserables - Queen's Theatre

Running for the past 25 years - still the best musical I have ever seen on the London stage. 

Make sure you do not miss it - www.LesMis.com

Mamma Mia! - Prince of Wales

The real feel good factor for Abba fans.  Will lift the heart on these cold grey winter days.

A Must - www.Mamma-Mia.com

The Rivals - Haymarket Theatre

Peter Bowles and Penelope Keith back together on stage where they make this a triumph.  Catch it before it closes on 26th February.

Book Now to avoid disappointment: www.theatre-royal-haymarket.com

The Mousetrap - St. Martin's Theatre

59 years and still going strong.  A wonderful plot written by Agatha Christie and still keeping the audiences coming back for more.

Don't Miss Out:  www.the-mousetrap.co.uk

Salad Days - Riverside Studios, Hammersmith

An old favourite in this small intimate theatre on the banks of the river in Hammersmith.  Great cafe to meet up with your friends.

For tickets: www.riversidestudios.co.uk
