Big John Recommends:

Designer, Maker, User: Visit the new Design Museum on High Street Kensington and see the development of modern design through these three interconnected roles.

The Mousetrap: See the longest running show of any kind in the world. Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap is a classic and is now celebrating its 64th year of a record-breaking run. 

Disney’s Aladdin: See this fabulous new musical that recently arrived in the West End. Featuring great songs from the film, this is a firm favourite with all the family. 

The Play That Goes Wrong: If you’re after a comedy then this is the one to see. Hilariously funny from start to finish, The Play That Goes Wrong is laugh out loud. A must see. 

The Ferryman: Voted Best Play in the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, The Ferryman by Jez Butterworth and directed by Sam Mendes, has won rave reviews across the board with this plot set in Northern Ireland in 1981.  

42nd StreetThis is the all singing and all dancing American dream fable of Broadway. Young Peggy Sawyer is fresh off the bus from small-town America and just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she's always dreamed of.

Witness for the Prosecution: See Agatha Christie's critically acclaimed gripping story of justice, passion and betrayal in a unique courtroom setting.  

Mary Stuart: This new adaptation of Mary Stuart at the Duke of York's Theatre goes behind the scenes of some of British history's most crucial days.
