This Week: 28th April – 4th May

28 April 2014 Charlie Kenber

Five intriguing events to check out this week...

2014 Sony World Photography Exhibition
What to expect:
 a diverse mix of top contemporary photography

This exhibition at the beautiful Somerset House celebrates some of the best work from contemporary photographers across the world. The annual competition draws entries from journalism, fine art, sport and commercial work, thus leading to an exhibition which spans a wide range of styles and forms. The show opens on Thursday and runs for just two and a half weeks, so don’t miss out!

The exhibition is on at Somerset House from 1st – 18th May. Tickets £5 – £7.50, discounted tickets available here!

Special Hockney Late

What to expect: a unique and tranquil evening viewing Hockney’s work

This late event gives you the unique chance to catch the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s popular exhibition of David Hockney’s printed work unfettered by the usual constraints. Gone will be the crowds thanks to a limited capacity, and in their place tranquillity, a slap-up dinner, and of course drinks! Although Hockney is perhaps less well known as a printmaker, the exhibitions demonstrates how his skills are as potent in that medium as in any other.

Still not convinced? Check out our interview with the exhibition curator Richard Llord here.

The late is on the 3rd May from 5.30pm – 8.30pm. Tickets cost £20-£46, available here.

Good People
What to expect: moving drama with Imelda Staunton

Imelda Staunton stars in the West End transfer of Pulitzer-prize-winning David Lindsay-Abaire’s play, following a sell out run at the Hampstead Theatre. The show follows the life of single mother Margie when her ex-boyfriend Mike returns to town. The run is limited to ten weeks, so catch it while you can.

Good People is on at the Noël Coward Theatre until 14th June. Tickets from £12.25, available here.

Three Sisters
What to expect:
a tragic tale revived on stage

Award-winning young playwright Anya Reiss turns her hand to Chekov’s classic play Three Sisters in this Southwark Playhouse production featuring Paul McGann. Directed by Russell Bolam, the play – unsurprisingly – follows three sisters who find themselves thousands of miles away from home. The same creative team worked on 2012’s acclaimed production of The Seagull, and the show finishes this week!

Three Sisters is on at Southwark Playhouse until 3rd May. Tickets from £10, available here.

The First Georgians: Art & Monarchy 1714-1760
What to expect:
a beautiful exploration of an important period in British history

The latest exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace celebrates the Hanoverian succession to the British throne in 1714. Thus marking the tri-centenary of the event, the exhibitions brings together furniture, china, maps and paintings from the Royal Collection to beautifully illustrate this important period in British history.

The exhibition is open until 12th October, with entry ranging from free to £9.75. Further information available here.
