This Week 23rd – 29th March

23 March 2015 Laura Stevens

Providing your eyes haven't been frazzled by the dazzling solar eclipse that London witnessed last Friday - this week you can feast your eyes on some unique photography or some unusual interpretations of animals sent back from the early explorers.

Frock Me!
What to expect:
A vintage fashion fair in Chelsea

Celebrating more than a decade on King’s Road, Frock Me! is the original London vintage fashion fair. Held at the Chelsea Old Town Hall there will be over 50 stalls of the finest vintage clothing, textiles, accessories and haberdashery! This is definitely not a flea market, but instead a classy marketplace to stock on all things beautiful and unique.

Frock Me! is held at Chelsea Old Town Hall on 29 March. For more information click here.

And Finally...Nicholas Hytner
What to expect:
Another farewell to one of the National’s Nicks

The National Theatre is saying goodbye to the dynamic duo of Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr this year, and to ease the pain they are presenting And Finally...Nicholas Hytner. Since becoming Director of the NT in 2003 Hytner has directed Othello, One Man, Two Guvnors and many more. This is an opportunity to hear more about his time here, and is chaired by Angus MacKechnie.

And Finally...Nicholas Hytner is on 27 March. For more information click here.

Revelations: Experiments in Photography
What to expect:
Definitely #nofilter

The Science Museum is presenting a world first, around 100 of the most stunning early scientific photographs ever created. This exhibition focuses on how these early developments in photography directly influenced and inspired generations of artists. From the 1840s, scientists were using photography to record things too large, too small or too fast for the human eye to see. The influence of this on art is seen with the placing of artistic works right next to these photographs, in this original exhibition.

Revelations: Experiments in Photography runs from 20 March to 13 September at The Science Museum. For more details visit here.

Strange Creatures: The art of unknown animals
What to expect:
How explorers survived before instant communication

How did the early pioneers of new lands interpret the new fauna and flora they found there? They turned to art when words couldn’t quite do justice to the incredible and fantastic wildlife they discovered. This new exhibition at the Grant Museum of Zoology brings together some of these artistic endeavours including George Stubb’s painting of a kangaroo that was recently saved for the nation by generous donations.

Strange Creatures: The art of unknown animals runs 16 March to 27 June at Grant Museum of Zoology. For more information click here.
